About New Mexico
Accommodations range from deluxe hotels to guesthouses, bed-and-breakfasts, motels, campgrounds, condos, guest ranches and resorts. They run the gamut in price and quality. Enjoy New Mexico's mountains at one of its year-round resorts, where tennis, golf, horseback riding, hunting, fishing, swimming and skiing fill the days. The Lodge at Cloudcroft was originally a summer resort for wealthy Texans, built when the timber-hauling railway to El Paso was completed in 1901. Several Native American groups operate hotels: The Inn of the Mountain Gods near Ruidoso is owned by the Mescalero Apache, the Hotel Tamaya resort near Albuquerque is run by Santa Clara Pueblo and the Hotel Santa Fe in Santa Fe is owned by the Picuris Pueblo. El Monte Sagrado in Taos brings the concept of eco-resort to life in luxurious manner. Family-run guest ranches focus on archaeology, nature programs or horseback riding.
