Las Cruces, City of The Crosses

New World Hip, Old World Charm

New Mexico’s third largest city blends university hip with old Mexican charm. Just a half hour from the Mexican border, Las Cruces thrums with the rhythms of Mariachi music and the smoky heat of green chile (much of New Mexico’s famous crop come from the nearby Hatch Valley). Old West ranching history, flavored with Mexican heritage, can be found in the city’s museums and historic plaza. Fun fact: Las Cruces is on roughly the same latitude as some of the best wine growing regions of Europe, so southern New Mexico’s vintages are worth a taste.

The best place to stay is at our premier luxury Hotel Encanto de Las Cruces. With a great location and amazing amenities like complimentary WiFi, a brand new resort-style pool and Spanish gardens, Gardunos of Mexico restaurant and Azul Ultralounge.
