“A lovely day trip experience”

Jemez Hot Springs: Home of The Giggling Springs
More attraction details
Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Jemez Hot Springs, Home of The Giggling Springs is located at the site of the earliest Bath House in the Jemez Springs area. 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. The four pools contain an 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 pools are 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 they are flow-through pools, so the water changes out regularly. Swim suits are required, children 14 and over are welcome, and for the comfort of our guests. Reservations are not required.

My wife and I drove up from Albuquerque with a friend to show him the Jemez Springs area and ended our visit with a soak in the Giggling Springs' outdoor pool. It is in the heart of Jemez Springs and yet feels like a remote, natural location. The office and changing room are old cabins nestled among trees that lend a rustic camp feeling. There is a lovely seating area beside the pool with chairs and a shade structure which made for a comfortable and relaxing visit of about two hours. Perrier and bottled water were available for purchase to sip while enjoying the hot-spring-fed pool. The pool provided us each a perfect relaxing temperature by simply changing our proximity to the hot spring source. We shared the pool with three other folks, two of whom are locals and regular soakers. The surroundings, the proximity to the village and it's amenities and the gracious attention paid us combined to make this a magical end to a lovely day trip.

This is a nice oasis in Jemez. It is really clean and the owners seem to really care about the place even though it is for sale. Make sure you try a fruit smoothie when you soak!

We reserved the hot springs for two hours for 17 people. Proprietors were very welcoming and accommodating. The springs are not super hot, so we could stay in for most of the time -- it was a cold day, so the heat was welcome! There was enough room for all of us, though some chose just to dip their toes. Added bonus for geologists--the springs are precipitating travertine around the edges. We had stopped beforehand at Soda Dam, just up the road, so we had the complete ancient and modern hot springs experience.

Totally relaxing, next to the Jemez River. Outdoors, to take in the scenary. One small changing room and extra for a shower, but these weren't a problem for us.
