Your New Mexico experience can be as varied as your imagination. The scenery can go from verdant alpine meadows filled with wildflowers to stretches of desert with nothing but cactus and roadrunners. You can spend the day in a deserted prehistoric Indian ruin, and the evening in the world-class Santa Fe opera.

New Mexico Wilderness

New Mexico is home to some of the wildest, most isolated tracts of wilderness in the United States. Yet Santa Fe is a cosmopolitan, sophisticated city of the arts. Nearby Albuquerque is famous for its world-class museums at the University of New Mexico.

If your vacation is in New Mexico, the basics of your lodging are simple - variety. You could be camping in a red rock canyon next to a waterfall. Or you may prefer a centuries old hacienda in the heart of old Santa Fe.

Whatever your interest, the basics of New Mexico lodging should be authenticity and style. Why stay in a chain hotel or motel when a recommended vacation rental or Santa Fe bed and breakfast can give you a unique New Mexico experience? When you are enjoying your own private vacation rental with Mexican tile floors, high beamed ceilings, a pinon pine fire burning in the kiva fireplace, and a view of the Sangre de Christo mountains out your window, you know you have mastered New Mexico lodging basics.
