Ojo Caliente

Picture
Ojo Caliente means Warm Eye or Hot Spring.   This place has been a source of healing for hundred of years.   The ancestors of the Tewa people built a large pueblo on the site.   In the 1860’s the first bathhouse and hotel were built making it the first natural health spa in the country

The advertisements for Ojo Caliente proclaim,  “Soak your bones”.  Which is exactly what we all did.   The hot springs contains four different mineral waters, lithium, iron, soda, and arsenic (yes I did say arsenic).   Each pool is delightfully warm and soothing.   We even had a mud bath.   The end result was 4 extremely relaxed people.
