    • One Way from ABQ to Taos

      Taos Apr 4, 2014 at 12:46 PM

      two of us are flying to Albuquerque on June 3rd and need to get to Taos that same day to meet up with other travelers. We only need one way to Taos that day. I have only seen one shuttle that makes this trip and it's Twin Hearts. They don't pick up the phone to inquire or reserve and the reviews are just dreadful about them. To rent a car one way from ABQ to Taos is very expensive as well. do you have any other suggestions?

    • Rushed 3 DAY trip to New Mexico

      New Mexico Mar 7, 2014 at 5:19 PM

      Hi All,

      I am planning to do a 3 day trip to New Mexico, reaching Albuquerque on a Friday night and leaving Albuquerque on a Monday night. Sometime in Mar/Apr

      How "impractical" and "crazy" does the following schedule look like? I am yet to decide on the halts, so I just put down the places on a google map, places that I want to "Touch, Photograph and Go" in these 3 days

      I sincerely wish I had the luxury of time. Will appreciate if someone can suggest how I can tweak this to make it look more "feasible".

      I am totally into Driving and Photography, especially landscapes, hence I am trying to cover the above mentioned locations

      Thanks to ALL members for your inputs for my earlier trips, as always.

    • Safe Reasonable Hotel

      Albuquerque Feb 15, 2014 at 11:58 PM

      My daughter and I will be traveling through New Mexico next month. Albuquerque is our half way point of the trip and would like to stay overnight. The last time I stayed there, my son and I just picked a convenient motel off the interstate. BIG MISTAKE! Hotel had several rooms with crack heads. The neighborhood was scary - lots of homeless and other types wandering around. We even had a stranger come into our room because the desk clerk did not recode the key card!!! Please let me know which area convenient to I40 would be safe for two ladies.

We'll sleep in the car either at national parks or TA , the closest to Carsbad being at Las Cruces .Any comments are greatly appreciated. This will be our first long distance car travel experience.

    • Park closure

      Chaco Canyon National Monument Oct 5, 2013 at 11:51 PM

      With the budget impasse, the park is closed until the government is again funded.
      Are the sites accessible with the park closed? It will be a great loss to not have the visitor center and ranger guides, but it will be even worse to not see the park at all.

      good hotel in santa fe for elderly parents

      Santa Fe Oct 5, 2013 at 10:19 PM

      Hi, i am traveling to santa fe for 2 days with my elderly mom.. She walks with a cane, fairly slowly and cant walk very long distances. Would it be better to stay farther from downtown and just drive and park at the various areas, or try to stay right near the center of town and try to walk (slowly) to things. also, does anyone have a suggestion for a nice hotel/inn that would be good for 3 adults (my sister is traveling with us also.,) What would be something that we shouldnt miss while we are in santa fe? thanks, Maggiefoss

      Albuquerque Sep 24, 2013 at 4:09 PM

      Hi, I have been to Albuquerque 3 times in the past year to visit my daughter and family. They moved there a little over a year ago. Two times we have driven there and in August I flew there. Every single time I've gone there I get very sick with diarrhea and vomiting. I mean REALLY sick. I had to go to the hospital in August due to being so dehydrated. No one can tell me why I keep getting sick. I don't get sick at home or anywhere else we travel to. If anyone has any idea please post and let me know. We are going to be going again Oct 5 and I am scared to death to go. Please help if you can. Thank you, Donna

      Cave Exploring in Carlsbad Caverns

      Carlsbad Caverns National Park 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!

      Itinerary question

      Albuquerque May 1, 2013 at 6:49 AM

      Arriving in ABQ towards late afternoon, with the next full day to stay there, but actually don't want to miss out on Santa Fe before moving on. Staying at Best Western Rio Grande. We'll probably go into the Old town after our arrival in the late afternoon; any ideas where to eat some good NM chow? Better to stay in the center or is there anywhere decent near the hotel? And on day 2: is it realistic to travel to Santa Fe via the Turquoise Trail, coming back via El Camino Real? What's parking like in Santa Fe? Is it better to eat somewhere on the road before getting there? We also want to visit a pueblo but they all look as if the journey north of SF would add on miles/time to our day, taking away from the time spent in SF. Are there any interesting pueblos west of ABQ which we could visit on our way out on day 3? Not ones with guided tours.

    • Flagstaff to Santa Fe

      New Mexico Apr 2, 2013 at 1:46 PM

      Bit of a broad question, we are travelling from Flagstaff to Santa fe. Think doing it in one day is a bit to much.
      Thinking of stopping in Albuquerque to get up early and go along the Turquoise Trail. Thats still a big drive between Flagstaff and Albuquerque. Any other sugestions for somewhere to stay enroute so we are not driving miles and will we be missing lots of interest on the way?
      Sorry for broad question but just worried about driving 400 miles Flagstaff to Santa Fe in one go.
      Hope to ask more specific questions later so please be patient!

      NM/AZ/CO/UT - This September

      New Mexico Jun 27, 2012 at 11:44 AM

      My husband and I are contemplating a two-week vacation in September – likely starting in Albuquerque and driving counter-clockwise through Colorado, Utah, and Arizona before returning to Albuquerque. We would appreciate any tips, warnings, recommendations, etc., anyone could offer us. Such as: What weather can we anticipate during that time? Are there some roads we should avoid (we’ll be renting a medium size sedan – not an SUV)? Anything in that general area which is considered a must-see/must-do (keeping in mind I’m 55 and my husband is 65)? Or anything else you’d deem that we should know before we go. Thanks for your help!
