    • Long-term stay

      Albuquerque Aug 14, 2015 at 3:08 AM

      I am probably moving to Albuquerque and want to visit for about a month before making a decision. Does anyone know which are the cleanest, safest hotels with small cooking areas? What about inexpensive dog-friendly hotels?

      I am ok with a mostly-safe (not perfect) neighborhood. Amenities and services are not important -- I can turn down my own bed and skip the chocolates on my pillow! However, cleanliness is a must.

      Any ideas?

      Thanks

    • Ports of Entry into Mexico

      New Mexico Aug 28, 2015 at 7:07 AM

      We are traveling by car from northern New Mexico to Kino Bay, Mexico taking I25 south through Lordsburg, NM. The 2 closest ports of entry to Lordsburg are Douglas or Naco, AZ. Does anyone know about these ports of entry? We would prefer not to go all the way to Nogales to enter as it adds miles to our trip. Thank you.

      Overview of Santa Fe, NM

      Santa Fe Aug 25, 2015 at 5:17 PM

      Greetings Beloveds!

      I will travel with a party of three (including one senior who gets around fairly poorly when walking for over a couple of blocks). We'll arrive in Albuquerque, NM, and have reservations for a shuttle to our property in Santa Fe. Now I'm considering staying at Santa Fe Hotel on the Plaza (to minimize driving) for this initial visit. The Hyatt Place Santa Fe seems so reasonable and nice, that I considered renting a vehicle and staying there instead. Hmm... Please provide anything you'd care to contribute about a 4 day visit to Santa Fe. More specifically, I'm interested in the following:

      ~ Dependable Shuttle suggestions for transport from/to Albuquerque, NM to Santa Fe
      ~ Small group tour of some culturally interesting places
      ~ Shopping for a few small jewelry items, small sculpture and/or art
      ~ Good dining (native, vegetarian)
      ~ Great spots for photo opportunities

      I so value your input. Thank you, kindly!

      Cave Exploring in Carlsbad Caverns

      by TLippard Online Now Sep 2, 2013 at 10:15 PM

      Hi. My wife and I are soon to be traveling to CC to do some of the ranger guided cave tours. We anticipate 5 or 6 of the tours, over a 3 or 4 day period. Some will be the easy ones, all the way up to the Strenuous tours. My question to any of you experienced cave explorers... Is it feasible to do say a moderate and a Strenuous cave tour in a single day (time permitting)? What are the pitfalls? We are both in better than average shape and being on our feet for 8-10 hours a day isn't a problem.

      Also, given the White Nose Syndrome issue with the bats, how do we go about making sure our gear is cleaned? We're getting helmets, lamps, etc. from the ranger, but what about our clothes, shoes, flashlights, kneepads? Is there a washout area or what do we do?

      Thanks a bunch in advance. Any other pertinent information you could throw my way would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!

    • Baby Strollers?

      by JonSmith123 Online Now Apr 12, 2011 at 3:11 PM

      I was wondering if the caves were open to people with baby strollers. Not sure how the navigation is down there so any help would be appreciated.

    • June trip to the Caverns

      by VIKTOY Online Now Jan 31, 2011 at 1:56 PM

      The Caverns are on my wishlist. We are driving from Portland,OR area to Reno middle of June with a group and thinking of keeping going to Carlsbad. What are the roads like (we are driving a Corvette) and the safety of leaving it unattended while looking at the caverns. Is the Best Western in Whites City OK?

      Best to see the bat flying in or out?

      by beatchfre Online Now Mar 8, 2006 at 12:04 PM

      Hi there,

      I'm trying to plan a little 2/3-day road trip from Santa Fe -> Roswell -> Carlsbad Caverns -> White Sands with my parents (from Scotland). I was wondering if anyone could tell me the best time to go to caverns i.e. should I go to see the bats flying INTO the cave at dawn, or OUT of the cave at dusk.

      We will be going sometime between the 5th to 12th of June. Just trying to plan an itinerary.

      Thanks in advance for any replies!

      Lee

      PS: Anyone know of any events going on in Alomagordo, Roswell, or Carlsbad in the above timeframe?
