Discover the 5 Best Santa Fe Hot Springs

Whether you’re looking for a way to warm up after a chilly afternoon cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or otherwise exploring in the Santa Fe area, or are looking to take advantage of the legendary healing properties of these waters, there are several excellent Santa Fe hot springs to consider visiting this winter. No two Santa Fe hot springs are alike, either.

Santa Fe hot springs range from high-end wellness retreat centers to rugged ones reached only after a (sometimes lengthy) hike. Whatever experience you’re looking for, there’s a reason the waters of Santa Fe hot springs have been such sought-after experiences. It’s really something you need to experience firsthand, so below, you’ll find a list of some of our favorite Santa Fe hot springs and those nearby the city worth indulging in.

  1. Ten Thousand Waves Spa is easily one of the best Santa Fe hot springs, particularly for those visitors to Santa Fe who are looking for a high-end wellness retreat. This gorgeous Japanese-style spa features hot tubs, massages, skin treatments, and one of the best Santa Fe hot springs. This is perfect for those looking for the ultimate in relaxation.
  2. Another of the most popular Santa Fe hot springs is Ojo Caliente Mineral Hot Springs & Spa. Though their original hot springs location is just north of Santa Fe, there’s now an Ojo Caliente Resort in the heart of Santa Fe. Both are worth visiting and offer similar world-class spa and hot springs experiences.
  3. For something less rustic than the hike-in options we’ll talk about next but still outside of Santa Fe proper, we can’t recommend Jemez Hot Springs enough. They offer beautiful outdoor pools filled with water from beneath the Valles Caldera National Preserve. It’s the perfect combination of a high-end spa experience and the more rustic experiences at other outdoor Santa Fe hot springs.
  4. Just west of Santa Fe in the Jemez Mountains, you’ll find the delightful San Antonio Hot Springs. This hike-in clothing-optional hot spring is well worth the effort, even in winter. Not only will you enjoy the beautiful rock pools built along the hillside of San Diego Canyon, but you’ll berewarded with small crowds and a Santa Fe hot springs experience almost to yourself! 
  5. Spence Hot Springs is another one of the hike-in-only Santa Fe hot springs to make our list. These naturally-occurring pools can be a little more crowded than the San Antonio Hot Springs, but the beautiful scenery makes that more than ok.
