New Mexico is a state located in the southwestern part of the United States. It is the 5th largest of the 50 United States. Santa Fe is the capital of New Mexico. Albuquerque and, to a lesser extent, Las Cruces and Rio Rancho are the largest cities of the State. The Albuquerque International Sunport is the state's primary port of entry by air.

New Mexico is a rich blending of Native American, Spanish and Western culture. It has been inhabited by Indigenous people of the Americas for many centuries. It is the American State that has the highest percentage of Hispanics. Albuquerque is home to both the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center and the National Hispanic Cultural Center. Most of the 19 Indian pueblos are located within an hour’s drive from the city.

New Mexico museums offer an array of activities for families to discover. The New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, the National Hispanic Cultural Center, and the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History are located in Albuquerque.

New Mexico is a playground for outdoor enthusiasts. It is home to 13 national parks and monuments (incl. the famous White Sands National Monument), 33 state parks (incl. Elephant Butte State Park, the largest State Park), and 25 magnificent scenic byways (including the legendary Route 66 and seven of the 126 America's Byways).

New Mexico offers world class whitewater rafting, fishing, kayaking, golfing, hiking, bird watching, mountain biking, and ballooning. The worldwide famous Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is held early October every year.

With over 300 inches of snow each winter and over 300 days of sunshine each year, winter sports in New Mexico include exceptional downhill skiing and snowboarding. The highest point in New Mexico, Wheeler Peak 4,011 m (13,161 feet), known formerly as Taos Peak, is located in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

Las Cruces, a relaxed Southwestern city, offers many cultural attractions as well as a wide range of year-round outdoor activities such as hiking, golfing, or tennis, in some of New Mexico's most diverse landscapes.

Truth Or Consequences, originally named Hot Springs, is a well-known spa city.
