Sylvia Plath once said “There must be quite a few things a hot bath won’t cure, but I don’t know many of them.” And here at UNM, we know there’s no better way to end a long week of classes than soaking away your troubles in the mineral rich waters of Jemez Hot Springs. Only an hour drive from Albuquerque and nestled in a lush, historic valley—Jemez Hot Springs offers several pools of naturally heated waters and cozy lounge areas. The water unearths at 120° before running down peaceful, steaming waterfalls. The spring then cools to a soothing, inviting temperature perfect for washing away your worries. There are four pools to choose from—which have in-water seating and comfy floating chairs. Be sure to plan extra time for this trip, you’ll want to stay longer than you think. If you’re ready for a relaxation recess that’s close to home, Jemez Hot Springs is a geothermal utopia waiting just for you.
