Fun and camaraderie describe a week at Rancho La Puerta, a destination spa stretching across 3,000 acres at the base of Mount Kuchumaa. The family-owned property, 45 miles southeast of San Diego, just over the Mexican, has welcomed guests for weeklong retreats since 1940. Fitness fans, this is your mecca. Gyms and exercise studios, aquatic areas, and three health and beauty centers keep guests invigorated, as does a collection of winding trails that suit hikers of all skill levels. Mindful eating is emphasized with a vegetarian menu, which uses produce picked daily from the on-site organic garden. At days end, guests retreat to Mexican-style casitas adorned with folk art. Rates include all lodging, activities, meals, classes, programs and scheduled transportation. Price: $2,715$4,510 Phone: +1.877.440.7778
