Rancho La Puerta – Tecate, Mexico
Rancho La Puerta is located on a precious natural landscape with a large on-site nursery that is home to native live oak trees and wildflower fields. The resort uses minimal to no use of chemicals to maintain the grounds (only when absolutely necessary are some low-impact products utilized for pest control).
Rancho La Puerta also has a 3.5-acre organic farm, Rancho Tres Estrellas, where 250 different varieties of the resort’s herbs, fruits and vegetables are grown! The garden’s rich diversity of crops, including heirloom varieties, eliminate outbreaks of pests that are known to taint fresh produce.
As for the resort’s facilities, all guest room showers and toilets use “low flow” water conservation technology and many of their public facilities utilize composting toilets and waterless urinals.
