The Giggling Springs Hot Springs is located at the site of the earliest Bath House in the Jemez Springs area, and before that, the mineral water was used by the Native Americans of the area. Our water comes from deep beneath the Valles Caldera (ancient volcano) up the mountain. It is ancient sea water abundant with a relaxing and therapeutic blend of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, silica, sodium and more. The source is 142 degrees F, but the pool is kept at a comfortable 102-104 degrees. The water is natural, and no chlorine or chemicals are added. We use ultraviolet light, ionizers and an oxygen inversions system to disinfect the water, and it is a flow-through pool, so the water changes out regularly. Swim suits are required, children 14 and over are welcome, and for the comfort of our guests, the number of people allowed in at one time is limited--so reservations are recommended.

It was a good hour plus drive from Santa Fe, but it was worth it. We stayed for an hour which was just right. We had thought about staying longer, but an hour was more than enough. I felt a 1960's vibe for sure, a blast from the past. Will look for other "hot springs" during our travels as it... More

Thank you for visiting the Giggling Springs. It's such a beautiful drive from Santa Fe through the Santa Fe National Forest and past the Valles Caldera National Park.

High in the stunning Sangre de Cristo range of the Rockies, Giggling Springs could make all other hot springs seem disappointing. The setting, views, perfect sulfur-free water, and naturally and culturally sensitive facility design made this a heavenly experience.

I read about Giggling Springs from the tourist board magazine "New Mexico True" while planning a vacation in New Mexico. Since I was staying in Bernalillo for a bit, and this is only a 45-50 minute drive away, my friends and I decided to go. Going from the ABQ area to Jemez is a GORGEOUS drive. I've never seen red...

Great little hot spring right off of the Jemez river. Two small public pools, one @ 102 and one @ 105. Cost @ $18 per hour. Water felt great but was cloudy. There was no sulphur so it was not stinky. The young lady at the desk was very helpful. Bathing suits are required.

This is a charming, rustic hot springs in Jemez Springs. Beautiful pools, next to the Jemez river. It's well organized and has everything you need; towels, robes, bottle of waters all for sale/ or rent. The winding drive through the Jemez valley sets a slow pace. Not a fancy spa; just instant relaxation. I am going to make it a... More

Highly recommend! We turned up on a sunny November afternoon with no reservation but Jim was more than welcoming to let us in. We originally chose just the single hour but once you are there you just want to stay, so we spent two hours. We shared the pools with two other people so it was lovely and quiet. You... More

We arrived without a reservation just before noon. We knew that the Springs limits the amount of people that can occupy the pools. The attendant was upbeat and welcoming as she showed us the grounds. We were thrilled by what we saw. We were the only ones at the pools for the first half hour. It was simply delightful to... More
