5 of the Best New Mexico Hot Springs

1. Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs

This New Mexico hot springs resort is the only spot in the world to find four kinds of mineral-enriched water including Lithia, iron, soda, and arsenic. Whether you are looking for remedies to the immune system, skin conditions, or even depression, the pools are considered beneficial. You will have your choice of 11 different pools at Ojo Caliente that range in temperature from 80-109 degrees.

2. Ten Thousand Waves

Located right in Santa Fe, the Ten Thousand Waves Spa is inspired by the great Japanese mountain hot springs. However, instead of a spring, the waters here are sourced from a 900-foot deep well. Each of the nine outdoor tubs reflects a sense of serenity that is perfect for melting all of your worries away. Your admission will also include access to the saunas, sun decks, cold plunge, and more. During your visit, be sure to check out their Izanami Restaurant which features authentic Japanese cuisine.

3. Giggling Springs

Located in nearby Jemez Springs, this luxury day-spa is home to therapeutic mineral water pools made from ancient seawater that originates deep beneath the Valles Caldera National Park & Preserve. The temperatures at Giggling Springs range from 102 to 105 degrees Fahrenheit, making it easy to relax in one of the floating chairs and forget all about your worries.

4. Spence Hot Springs

Also located near Jemez Springs, Spence Hot Springs can be reached after a short hike through the Jemez Valley. The undeveloped, natural setting within the rock pools provides an authentic New Mexico hot springs experience, making it a favorite among visitors.

5. Riverbend Hot Springs

Riverbend Hot Springs in New Mexico is the furthest from our Chimayo bed & breakfast. It’s located in Truth or Consequences, approximately three and a half hours from Casa Escondida. However, its immense popularity may make it worth the visit! The outdoor baths have been considered to be sacred by southern New Mexico tribes for centuries, and for good reason. The legendary waters have been used by warriors and peace-seekers alike for their nearly miraculous healing abilities. As you soak in the tubs, you’ll also be treated to spectacular views of the Rio Grande Mountains. It’s the perfect option for those who want to be in tune with nature without roughing it.

Leave All Your Worries Behind During Your Stay at Casa Escondida

After spending a day at the New Mexico hot springs, return to our Chimayo bed & breakfast for even more relaxation! Unlike other hotels in the New Mexico mountains, we immerse our guests in the culture of the Southwest with authentically-designed guest rooms, traditional New Mexican breakfast items, and a naturally beautiful setting.
