Otra Vez is located about 200 yards/180 meters from the historic Santa Fe Plaza, the heart of history and Hispanic culture in New Mexico. The Plaza is home to a variety of tourist-oriented stores, native American jewelry and art vendors, the New Mexico History Museum, New Mexico Art Museum, and a couple of historic hotels. The Cathedral Basilica of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe is one block off the Plaza. Next to it is the Loretto Chapel, which contains an architecturally amazing spiral staircase, assembled with no nail or screw fasteners whatsoever. The Georgia O’Keefe Museum is one of my favorite spots.
Cathedral Basilica of St Francis of Assisi is within walking distance and has mass 8:00, 10:00, and noon on Sunday, weekdays at 7:00 am, 12:10, and 5:15 pm.
A 10-15-minute walk brings one to the Canyon Road art gallery and shopping district, which is the single largest concentration of galleries and artist studios in New Mexico. Santa Fe is also New Mexico’s state capitol, and the Legislature and Executive office buildings are just a short walk from the resort.
Museum Hill is definitely worth a day to explore with the Folk Life Museum, a Native American museum, and much more. Catch the public M bus in front of the bank for this trip.
Ten Thousand Waves Spa is up the mountain on the way to the ski slopes. Inspired by the great Japanese mountain hot spring resorts, it is 10 minutes from downtown Santa Fe, but only minutes from the National Forest. There are beautiful outdoor hot tubs and spa suites for a small fee, world-class bodywork and skin care and the Izanami restaurant. Call for a massage appointment a few weeks ahead. I like to go in the late afternoon and spend several hours. There is a bus to take you both ways ($5 to the driver each way) The closest pickup place is at the back of the Otra Vez parking lot (Water St. & Sandoval). Up the mountain at 8:10, 11:40 am and 3:40 pm. Down the mountain at 9:10, 12:45 pm, and 4:30 pm.
Surrounding area: NOTE: La Fonda Hotel on the Plaza will rent cars by the day. Prices are very reasonable ($18/day or so, and you can walk there from Otra Vez).
There is a casino just north of town near Camel Rock and the gorgeous Santa Fe Opera House.
The resort is also about a 45-minute drive to Los Alamos, the birthplace of America’s nuclear arsenal (The Manhattan Project) with a very interesting museum and historic buildings. On this same long trip, Bandelier National Monument has great hikes into ancient native American cliff dwellings with pictographs and petroglyphs.
About an hour drive to Abiquiu and Ghost Ranch where Georgia O’Keefe lived and painted.
About an hour drive to famous and scenic Taos, New Mexico.
Road conditions permitting, there is a Benedictine monastery named CHRIST IN THE DESERT with vespers at 5:30 pm.
There is a myriad of attractions in and around Santa Fe, many more than can be covered here. There is a large binder on the coffee table in the unit with all kinds of information.
If you fly into Albuquerque, Sandia Shuttle is available every hour from the airport to Santa Fe for $33 plus tax per person each way. Call for a reservation, or If you are more adventurous, there is a little known commuter train to Santa Fe several times a day called the Rail Runner (very reasonable like $10 for seniors one way). The local shuttle mentioned below meets the train during day time hours and will drop off very close to Otra Vez (and later taxis are available).
Once you arrive in Santa Fe, there is a free tourist SHUTTLE that goes around the downtown area, rail yard, and up Canyon Rd every 20 minutes or so. The sign has a red truck on the sign that says SANTA FE PICKUP. You catch it next to the El Dorado hotel on Sandoval ½ block away from the Otra Vez parking lot. Even closer, there is also a bus stop across from the ski shop that will take you to grocery stores and up to Museum Hill. The office staff can assist with this. The bus has a set schedule.Get the full listing »
