Cheap flights to New Mexico

New Mexico is a state located in the south-western and western regions of the United States, admitted to the union in 1912. It is usually considered one of the Mountain States, the fifth largest state based on land area, and the sixth least densely populated state in the country. The state was originally inhabited by indigenous peoples of the Americas before Europeans set foot in the land. Upon their arrival, the Europeans made New Mexico subsequently a part of the Imperial Spanish viceroyalty of New Spain. Later, it was part of the newly formed nation of Mexico for a short period, before becoming a United States Territory and eventually, a U.S. State. The capital of New Mexico is Santa Fe, while the largest city is Albuquerque.

What to see & do

Carlsbad Caverns National Park – The majestic Carlsbad Caverns National Park is a United States National Park and a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in the Guadalupe Mountains of southeast New Mexico. It is found in Eddy County, near the city of Carlsbad. It is governed by the National Park Service of the United States, categorised under category II of the IUCN, or the International Union for Conservation of Nature. The primary attraction of the park is the show cave, called as Carlsbad Cavern. The Carlsbad Cavern includes a large cave chamber, the Big Room, which is actually a natural limestone chamber. It is sized at almost 4,000 feet long, 625 feet wide, and 255 feet high at the highest point. It is the fifth largest chamber in North America, and the 28th largest in the world.

Sandia Peak Tramway – The Sandia Peak Tramway is a novel aerial tramway located adjacent to Albuquerque. It stretches from the north-east edge of the city to the crestline of the Sandia Mountains, and has the world's third longest single span. It is North America's longest aerial tram. The tramway ascends the steep western side of the highest portion of the Sandia Mountains, passing close to dramatic cliffs and pinnacles, from a base elevation of 6,559 feet to a top elevation of 10,378 feet. A trip up the mountain takes 15 minutes to ascend, and the normal operating speed of the tram is at 12 miles per hour. Four “flights” or trips leave every hour from the base and top departure stations.

Albuquerque Biological Park – The Albuquerque Biological Park, also known as the BioPark, is an environmental museum and facility located in Albuquerque. It is a one-stop nature trip shop, containing four separate facilities that are most enjoyable with company. The facilities include the Albuquerque Aquarium, which is an ocean tank containing saltwater species from the Gulf of Mexico; the Rio Grande Botanic Gardens, which is a glass conservatory housing plants from desert and Mediterranean climate Zones; the Rio Grande Zoo, a 2.5-mile path containing more than 250 species of exotic and native animals; and finally the Tingley Beach where water activities can be enjoyed.

How to get around within New Mexico

The larger cities, including Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Las Cruces, have established public transportation, although at other areas, one can only use public buses. The better and more useful mode of transport perhaps is the car, since New Mexico's roads are decently paved. Be careful and wary of drunk drivers.
