A Little-Known Place in New Mexico That’s Perfect to Get Away from It All

Ojo Caliente (pronounced “O-ho Kall-ee-in-tey”) Mineral Springs & Spa is one of the oldest natural health resorts in the United States; it opened in 1868. The sulphur-free, geothermal mineral waters that bubble up from the ground have flowed from a subterranean volcanic aquifer for thousands of years. More than 100,000 gallons of water rise to the surface every day. Soaking in these hot springs is revitalizing and, some believe, healing.

For more information, including rates, visit the Ojo Caliente website. And if you’re ready to go to Ojo, the address is 50 Los Banos Dr., Ojo Caliente, NM 87549.
