New Mexico is full of lovely places to frequent. But winter's almost here. What can you do in the Land of Enchantment while the snow is falling? Skiing is always an option. Resorts are aplenty here.
Though if you're not a skier, what else is there to do? We recommend hitting the hot springs because who doesn't love a good warm soak in water primed with rejuvenating minerals. Find out what locum tenens assignments are open in New Mexico then come on back to see where you can soak. (Keep in mind, the hot springs that we list below are primarily resorts. For a listing of hot springs that are off-the-beaten path, click here.)
A little over an hour west of Sante Fe is Jemez Springs, a town filled to the brim with hot, mineral-rich pools. For a truly relaxing soak we recommend stopping by Giggling Springs.
Riverbend Hot Springs
Located in an oddly named yet historic spa town, Truth or Consequences, Riverbend Hot Springs is laid back. You can stay a couple nights or just go for a day. Both public and private pools are available.
Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs
Perhaps the most famous out of all the resorts in New Mexico, Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs (under two hours north of Albuquerque) even has select springs aimed to help relieve what ails ya. These springs are, in a word, heavenly.
Faywood Hot Springs
Last but not least is Faywood Hot Springs. You'll find this rustic gem – along with its thirteen mineral water soaking pools – in southwestern New Mexico.
