Blue Hole was such a fun gem on the way to Albuquerque! Very cold but refreshing and such a beautiful spot. There was a lifeguard there, and there are bathroom facilities. Great place to relax and swim around in beautiful, blue water!

The Blue Hole is an amazing treat. Totally worth a visit especially if you are driving through New Mexico in 100 degree weather. It's $5.00 to park and that is the only fee. It's 69 degrees constantly and super clean and beautiful. You can do...More

The only thing happening in Santa Rosa is the Blue Hole, and it's awesome. During the summer, expect there to be crowds of people, and scuba divers training, but when it is over 95 degrees in the desert, the Blue Hole is the place to...More

Small swimming hole- people seem to love jumping from the rocks! Water is freezing!! They do charge $5 a car which i think is ridiculous

We went on 23 July 2017 for a day trip to the blue hole. Plenty of parking especially for an 40ft RV. For warm day water was still chilling and refreshing at the same time. This site is not extremely large and has a few...More
