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.

Soothing Springs

Historic mineral spring on the banks of the river. Reasonable prices. Relaxing place for achy muscles. Pleasant staff. Beautiful location. Close to the center of town.

It was a great way to end a long day of hiking. The owner was friendly and helpful. The smoothies were tasty. The springs were clean and relaxing.

The hot springs are delightful, have breathtaking scenery, and don't have the sulfur smell at all like other hot springs, Michelle made our visit very enjoyable and I found the art, jewelry in the gift shop and the frozen, non-alcoholic drinks to be just the right compliment to a very enjoyable 4th of July! Thanks again!

This place is a work in progress with some construction going on. I didn't find that a bother. The grounds are pretty and peaceful and the pools are nice and clean. I soaked for an hour and was really relaxed! There isn't a lot of shade over the pools but enough to make me happy. I look forward to a... More

I am a resident New Mexican, and I have had a ton of memorable experiences in the Land of Enchantment in the 15 years I have lived here! Giggling Springs is one of the best places I have ever spent an afternoon. I took two of my friends who were visiting from the South, and they can't stop raving about... More

We went for an hour and came out so relaxed it transports you to another place. The owner was friendly and helpful it was not to busy. There are 4 different Pools to ènjoy etc one a different nàtural temperature. Very ènjoyàble

This is the best spring in Jemez. Its quiet and beautiful! The water will heal any skin problem you can imagine. The staff are knowledgeable and kind. I would be there every week iif I could. You do not want to miss this. Great cafe across the street, beautiful drive. Plan to stay as long as you can.

This is a small facility, although they are currently installing a third soaking area. The river running right next to the resort is really soothing and they have plenty of area for changing and lounging outside of the pools.

Thank you for the nice review. We have actually just finished our 4th pool!! We are also adding more outdoor furnishings and shaded seating coming very soon. Because our capacity has increased (but we promise it will never feel crowded!) we are trying to get away from reservations except for special events. We hope you can visit us again soon. More
