Crazy place with something for everyone. The owner is “one of a kind” and he alone is worth the stop if you’re near Truth or Consequences, NM.

Had a one-hour soak in one of the private springs (Rio) overlooking the river and Turtle Mountain. Clothing-optional in the private baths. Great water temperature, clean and a fantastic view. The lodge rooms were booked solid but next time I’ll try to stay on-site.

Hot Springs Bathhouse Historic and Commercial District

Reviewed By 289pams

We stayed at Las Palomas, in the heart of the downtown hot springs district. The owner was very helpful during our stay and staff all very courteous and quiet. We appreciated the “whisper only” policy during our stay, which allowed us to focus on total relaxations. The hot spring pools there were indivual and different temps, which was also nice. Easy to book our slots. We had free range of the pools, since we were overnight guests, which I would highly recommend. Hope we can return some day....

Chloride

Reviewed By theOddBee - Philadelphia, United States

This isn't like Tombstone. There are no novelty photo booths or actors roaming the streets. (There's also no food. Stop in Winston to get snacks and drinks, and to use the bathroom!) This is an ACTUAL ghost town. If that's your jam, you're going to love this. I had a great time learning about the history of the town from the people who helped give it new life it as an attraction. Talk to Don & Donna and they'll tell you everything you want to know and more. Make sure you buy Don's book in the gift shop! It is a really interesting read: action, adventure, death by skunk. While you're there, please be polite and don't take photos of peoples' houses. People actually do live here so if there are signs of life, no photos. Talk to Don & Donna first if you aren't sure.

Black Cat Books & Coffee

Reviewed By Santafesoaker - Agua Fria, United States

I just discovered this is a volunteer run book store and Coffee shop and all I can say is “ well done community “. Eccentric and funky , friendly and knowledgeable. Even if you don’t want to buy a book ( and you may with their excellent prices ) it’s a great place to sit and chat with locals ( and their dogs ) over the best priced coffee downtown.

A small craft brewery in the historic hot springs bathhouse district of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. Our mission is to make great beer and make people happy. Bring a picnic OR order in from local restaurants nearby.

This brewery had a great selection of beers they brew, and rotating taps. We got a flight, a pint, and a growler to go and it was reasonably priced. Definitely try the green Chile beer!
