Hot Spring activities in Southwest
Monroe is a quiet, conservative Mormon farming community with one (good) restaurant. The main draw, however, is the hippie-esque Mystic Hot Springs, where the water runs out of the earth into old claw-foot tubs and small cobbled-together pools. Put up a tent or stay in one of the tiny historic cabins they’ve dragged here from around the state.
Locals love the hot water at Jemez’ Giggling Springs where you can soak in private hot springs for $15 an hour. It’s across the road from the Laughing Lizard Inn.
