Your New Mexico Cabin Rentals adventure starts when you leave your home.
New Mexico Cabin Rentals is off the beaten path. How you choose to get here is part of the adventure, and which airport you choose to fly into will greatly influence that experience. Many guests like to fly into Albuquerque a day or two ahead explore the historic downtown, some like to fly into Pheonix and visit the Desert Botanical Garden. Some of our guests choose to fly into Tucson, home to the nation's oldest Mexican Restaurant in continuous operation by the same family - El Charro Cafe. Those looking for the shortest driving distance opt for El Paso, which is just north of the Mexican boarder and offers its own unique southwestern flavor. Here are driving directions that will help you find your way here.
From Albuquerque: We are approximately 250 miles (5.5 hours) from Albuquerque. From I-25 head south. At Socorro, exit onto Highway 60 south, driving through Socorro. Make sure your gas tank is topped off before leaving Socorro. The distances are great...the gas stations are few. Watch for the sign indicating Highway 60 makes a right turn.

Be advised NM State Highway Patrol will be happy to "welcome" you. At Datil, turn left onto Highway 12 and continue to Reserve. In Reserve, Highway 12 makes a right turn. Follow Highway 12 about 7 more miles to Highway 180; turn left onto Highway 180 and drive south till you get to Cliff. At Cliff, turn left onto Highway 211.
