Hot Springs

Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs, 40 minutes north of Santa Fe, comprises several mineral pools: iron, sodium, lithium, sulfur, and arsenic (yes, it's healthy!). No need to feel self-conscious about revealing your cellulite or spare tire at this low-key spa-it's intentionally short on glamour, which is a plus when all you want is a soak, a salt rub, and a body wrap in a serene but powerful setting. This place has about a dozen different pools, something for everyone. There are also interesting hikes that start on the property and go to some archeological sites.

Jemez Springs, there are several commercial springs available in Jemez, offering various services with a soak. Naturally occurring minerals include acid carbonate, aluminum, calcium, chloride, iron, magnesium, potassium, silicate, sodium, and sulfate. You can also get massages, manicures, and other treatments. There are free springs on the mountainside for hikers:

The following springs are on public land and are for day-use only.
There are no facilities at these locations. These springs are administered by the US Forest Service headquartered at the north end of Jemez Springs. The phone number for current spring conditions is 505-829-3535.
