Located in the heart of New Mexico's rugged desert terrain, Truth or Consequences may seem like an unlikely destination for a rejuvenating retreat. But for those willing to venture off the beaten path, hidden treasures await.

Our journey to Riverbend Hot Springs was no exception – a winding drive through vast desert landscapes and rugged terrain led us to this enchanting oasis in the middle of nowhere.

We spent our Easter morning there as a peaceful way to start our day of before more travel. It was so serene and perfect before eventually becoming one of the worst driving days of my life due to the crazy winds of the New Mexico desert later that afternoon.

A Soak in Serenity: Riverbend Hot Springs

Upon arrival at Riverbend Hot Springs, we were greeted by the soothing sounds of the Rio Grande River and the inviting warmth of natural mineral springs. Nestled alongside the riverbank, Riverbend offers a range of soaking options, from communal pools to private tubs, each boasting its own unique charm and panoramic views of the surrounding desert landscape.

Opting for a private pool rental, we found ourselves immersed in a tranquil sanctuary, where the stresses of daily life melted away with each soothing soak. As we lounged in the warm waters, a bird visitor gave us some beautiful songs complimenting the babbling river.

A Magical Experience Worth the Journey

Our visit to Riverbend Hot Springs was a magical experience that exceeded all expectations. Despite the remote location and the long drive to reach this hidden gem, the rejuvenating effects of the natural hot springs and the breathtaking beauty of the desert landscape made it well worth the journey.

We were passing through on our way to Big Bend National Park in Texas, but I would recommend this as a destination because it was so awesome.
