Description: The Giggling Springs Hot Springs is located at the site of the earliest...
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 139 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.

Fantastic setting, great pool of hot springs, options for relaxation and picnics by the Jemez River, lovely gift shop, two great hostesses. What else do you need to treat yourself to a wonderful hour or day!

Every month I visit a different mineral spring in New Mexico. Giggling Springs definitely provides the most therapeutic water. This gem of a mineral spring induces a deeper relaxation for me than any other spring in New Mexico. The fact that the spring is right along the river's edge is a bonus as I enjoy the sound of the river... More

We are definitely lucky to have the water chemistry that we do. Our water comes from under the Valles Caldera, a super volcano that blew a really long time ago. If you would like to learn more about how the hot springs work in the Jemez, I recommend watching a PBS special, "Valles Caldera, the Science." It's beautifully done. It's... More

There is nothing more disappointing than wanting to do something and not being prepared. I walked in and explained our situation and Tanya said no problem! We rented swim trunks and towels. We opted for the one hour dip. That really was about all we could take. You can bring plastic bottles in but not glass. You can also be... More

We try to provide unprepared guests options for bathing attire and other things that one might forget without breaking the bank! We're so glad you stopped in and had a great time. We have a lot of calcium precipitate in the water right now that makes your skin really soft! Thank you also for the nice review. More

There are many places to go to hot springs in NM-I have only been to two other places. This one is my favorite so far. Why? It has a wonderful unpretentious feel to it and you get to be outdoors taking in the amazing blue sky against the deep red canyon walls. We were able to soak in the spring... More

While in Jemez Springs for 3 days, my husband and I visited Giggling Springs twice, a total treat and one that added greatly to the relaxing experience of our visit to the area. The cost is the same as the village hot springs and both are nice facilities, but some pluses for us were being able to soak together in... More

We visisted Giggling Springs following a visit to Bandelier Natioanl Monument. It is a cute little hot pool in a historic old town. The owner was very friendly and the dip in the pool was very relaxing. There is a stream right next to the hot spring pool and the sounds and atmosphere are enjoyable. Jemez is a quirkly little...
