Watching Snow Fall From This One Hot Spring Resort In New Mexico Is Basically Heaven
It is slowly starting to feel a little more like winter out there. Parts of the state received snow not long ago and we will hopefully be getting even more very soon. If you’re looking for ways to warm up while those temperatures keep dropping, you’ll want to check out this picturesque hot spring resort near Santa Fe.
Welcome to the ever-alluring Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort and Spa, a place that feels like the middle of nowhere.
This luxurious location is actually one of the oldest such resorts in the country, with its doors first opening in 1868 as a small bathhouse. Since then, it's grown into one of New Mexico's best hot springs resorts. It is home to four different mineral waters to soak in: iron, soda, lithia, and arsenic. These are also all sulfur-free, so you don't need to worry about smelling like a hard-boiled egg when you step out of the waters.
Situated about an hour north of Santa Fe, the landscape is the perfect background for the historic Ojo Caliente.
You can watch the rustling leaves glimmer in their autumnal colors while enjoying a hot soak.
But it is particularly captivating in winter when the area is blanketed in snow and everything is peaceful.
Just imagine soaking in these steaming baths while watching the snow fall nearby.
You can also opt to dip in private pools as well, for a silent experience.
The pool temperature range between 80 and 106 degrees, so it's up to you how hot and how long you would prefer to steep.
The baths are open to the public but if you want a particularly relaxing experience, consider booking a room.
You can opt to stay in the historic hotel built in 1916, in private casitas, or even in a vintage trailer.
This is one cozy, relaxing experience you won't want to miss out on!
Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs is located in the remote town of Ojo Caliente, about one hour north of Santa Fe.
Several of the resort's pools are open to the public for a day-use fee. For details about pool rates, booking a room, and more, visit the Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs
