Hot Springs in New Mexico

December 29, 2021

Are there any natural hot springs in New Mexico?  

There most certainly are! New Mexico is one of those states that just doesn’t get enough credit for its natural wonders, we think. There’s a sizeable handful of hot springs all over the state – more than 25! Then, there are clusters you can find in similar places; for example, in Truth or Consequences, you can find several wonderful hot springs like the Sierra Grande Lodge and Spa and the Riverbend Hot Springs. You’ll also want to check out the Fire Water Lodge, while you’re there. Near Jemez Springs (can’t imagine why it’s called that!), you’ll find Spence Hot Springs and the aptly named Jemez Springs, both of which are wonderful for a quick dip or a long soak. The towns of Santa Fe and Las Vegas are both filled with springs, too, and we think you’ll love them as we do! For more information about each of these and then some, check this list of the 12 best hot springs in New Mexico out 

What are some lovely winter getaways in New Mexico?  

Don’t let the desert aesthetic fool you – New Mexico is, in a lot of ways, a winter wonderland. As long as you know where to go, you’re sure to find some breathtakingly amazing winter scenery. Take a ride on the Sandia Peak Tramway to cruise high above some of New Mexico’s snowiest landscapes and take it all in. The ride also includes some views of Albuquerque that you just won’t find anywhere else – it’s ESPECIALLY perfect in winter! Check out Taos for some of the best skiing and ski resorts in the Southwest, and while you’re there take a romantic ride on the Kachina Peak Chairlift with your significant other for extra wonder. Lakes Maloya and Alice are great for ice fishing and can be found near Raton, New Mexico, within Sugarite Canyon State Park. The possibilities are plentiful, so get outside and explore beautiful New Mexico!
