5 New Mexico Hot Springs to Visit in 2022

Thanks to the active geothermal activity in New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment is a great place to enjoy a relaxing soak. Not only are the soothing waters relaxing, but they also have legendary healing properties.

Jemez Springs is one of the most popular places for New Mexico hot springs, and Jemez Springs is just about 90 minutes from our Inn. You’ll find several wonderful springs to relax, including some out in the middle of New Mexico’s stunning natural surroundings. Some pools are only open seasonally, so be sure to check on their accessibility before you travel.

There are plenty more New Mexico Hot Springs around the state, too, including those offering resort-like experiences that are open year-round. We’ve included a list of five of the best near our New Mexico Bed and Breakfast.

  1. Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs is one of the top-rated New Mexico hot springs, and you’ll see why the moment you step foot into these sacred waters. Ojo Caliente Hot Springs is the only place in the world where you’ll find four kinds of mineral-enriched water, including Lithia, iron, soda, and arsenic – waters that have been considered to hold healing properties for generations. Add to the experience and indulge in one of the treatments, followed by a delicious lunch or dinner at their onsite restaurant.
  2. Jemez Hot Springs is home to therapeutic mineral water pools made from ancient seawater, which originates deep beneath the Valles Caldera National Preserve
  3. One of the closest New Mexico hot springs to Chimayó is the San Antonio Hot Springs near Los Alamos. It’s also one of the most popular New Mexico Hot springs, thanks to its rugged nature and stunning natural surroundings in the heart of the Santa Fe National Forest. You’ll have to hike into the hot spring to use it, but it’s more than worth the short 0.6-mile trek, provided it’s open (it’s open seasonally, so be sure to look before you travel!). 
  4. Relax, rejuvenate, and renew at Jemez Springs Bath House! Here, you can find something a little unique among New Mexico hot springs – the chance to enjoy a hot or cold mineral bath – not to mention a wide variety of spa services such as body scrubs, waxing, and other cosmetology services. 
  5. If you want a more traditional spa experience combined with a relaxing soak in New Mexico hot springs, head to Ten Thousand Waves Spa in Santa Fe. It was modeled after traditional Japanese mountain hot springs. They have nine outdoor hot tubs, the perfect place to soak away your worries and leave them behind. Don’t miss a meal at Izanami Restaurant – it’s one of the best in Santa Fe!
