We Dare You To Stay In This New Mexico Cave And Not Absolutely Love It

In Northwestern New Mexico, lies a hotel that may be the most unique place to stay in the state. If you’ve ever watched “The Flintstones” and been intrigued by the idea of cave living, then you’ll adore Kokopelli’s Cave. At 1700 square feet, this cave is bigger than many people’s homes and offers the same level of comfort. It has the added advantage of offering fabulous views of the La Plata River valley far below. Kokopelli’s Cave consistently appears on lists of unusual hotels in the U.S. and, since it’s located in Farmington, it’s geographically convenient.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
