Santa Rosa, New Mexico

When heading east out of Santa Rosa, New Mexico, you have to stop by and take a moment to look at the worlds famous Blue Hole. This is by far one of the most beautiful natural wonders that you will see in New Mexico. When stopping by, don’t forget to put on your bathing suit! This body of beautiful blue water stays a steady cool temperature all year round, and is available for swimming (although there is no life guards here!). Beware that although it does not look that big around, this body of water goes very deep into the earth’s surface, so don’t plan on racing anyone to the bottom without some type of special swimming gear. The Blue Hole is definitely a nice place to stop off and relax for a while while on your trip!
