History

Fundación La Puerta was founded in 1977 by the Szekely family and their life-long business partner, José Manuel Jasso, in partnership with Rancho La Puerta, their resort created in 1940 to promote holistic health, fitness and natural living. Since its inception, Fundación La Puerta has actively supported environmental, social and educational projects in the Tecate and border area, including the preservation of endangered native plant and wildlife habitat within this region.
