Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in New Mexico, USA your home away from home

New Mexico is one of the southwest states in North America. It is noted for its red rocks, desert climate, high snow-capped Rocky Mountains and has a strong Spanish influence as it was once part of Mexico. It still has a high percentage of Navajo and Pueblos natives who live in tribes and maintain their local cultures and traditional skills such as jewelry-making.

Things to Do in New Mexico

The scenic byways are ideal for road trips and the Rocky Mountains offer hiking, biking and mountaineering in the summer. In the winter the mountains are popular for winter sports such as alpine and cross country skiing and snowboarding on the powdery snow. Adventurous visitors can go white water rafting on the Rio Grande or canoeing on the calmer Rio Chama. New Mexico is also famous for its trout fishing. The state hosts many festivals such as the Albuquerque International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta and has many museums, theatres and operas for a cultural nightlife along with a host of international cuisine to sample in the renowned restaurants around your New Mexico holiday rental. See the Native Americans making exquisite jewelry from local gemstones such as turquoise, malachite and lapis lazuli set in silver. Visit the local pueblos and pick up handmade colored pottery, Navajo rugs and retablos which are painted with religious figures. For a scenic ride high above the canyons of Albuquerque take a trip on the Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway.

Places to Visit in New Mexico

Explore Albuquerque with its lovely Downtown architecture or visit the Petroglyph National Monument which runs for 17 miles along the city’s west mesa. Cliff’s Amusement Park nearby offers wild thrill rides.A visit to the old town of Sante Fe will surprise and delight visitors staying in a New Mexico holiday rental in the area. The adobe architecture and old church are arranged around the small streets to create a charming area for dining outdoors beneath shady trees. The famous Carlsbad Caverns are a chain of 300 caves which were only discovered in 1922. They have some impressive natural features including long stalactites and stalagmites. Navajo is the largest Indian Reservation in the United States and is an interesting place to visit and browse the beautiful handicrafts, sand paintings and semi-precious handmade jewelry.

Weather in New Mexico

Those enjoying a holiday rental in New Mexico will find the arid continental climate can be hot in the summer and freezing in the winter, although the climate is greatly affected by the varying altitudes. Summer temperatures can exceed 38°C (100°F) at elevations below 5,000 feet (1,524m) while the high mountains provide great conditions for skiing and winter sports.
