          The Ranch describes itself as a "luxury bootcamp", which sounded appealing. Unfortunately the only luxury was the price. The rooms are very simple, amenities practically non-existent. Food is very good, but served by a military-style chef. So don't even consider questioning, just eat and stay...More

          I am physically fit and not afraid of hiking, but I don't like heights (if the trail is narrow and/or very steep) and I'm afraid of some river crossings(e.g., log bridges, white water). Would these fears be an issue for me on these hiking trails?

          I am 77 years young, but with back issues. Not sure this is the place for me, but sounds interesting. Are all hikes 3 hours long? Activities geared to young and buff? Would think of coming with daughter in Santa Monica, tho I'm from the East Coast. Have been at Canyon Ranch several times, with choices of activites at various levels. Prices for 4 days or a week, please. Are all meals included? I'd like a program example.
