This One Destination Has The Most Turquoise Water In New Mexico

The Blue Hole has the bluest and most pristine water in New Mexico. But what about turquoise water? If you want to gaze at the rippling surface of a turquoise pool of water, you need to head 14 miles southeast of Roswell, to Bottomless Lakes State Park.

While Scotland has Loch Ness, if dubious legend is to be believed, these sinkholes conceal giant turtles! Not particularly terrifying as lake monsters go.

Have you seen the vivid colors at Bottomless Lakes State Park? Which is your favorite lake or swimming hole in New Mexico?
