The canyons, cacti, and thorny bushes of the southern New Mexico desert hide one of the U.S.'s great subterranean geological wonders, Carlsbad Caverns National Park.
Explore hidden gems such as Lion's Tail and Hall of The White Giant. Get outdoors at Guadalupe Mountains National Park and Carlsbad Caverns Natural Entrance Tour. Change things up with these side-trips from Carlsbad Caverns National Park: Runyan Ranches (in Mayhill) and Guadalupe Mountains National Park (Manzanita Spring, Permian Reef Geology Trail, & more). There's lots more to do: Head underground at Big Room, explore the activities along Green Lake, explore the striking landscape at Giant Dome, and cruise along Walnut Canyon Desert Drive.

For reviews, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Carlsbad Caverns National Park tour builder .

Expect a daytime high around 74°F in March, and nighttime lows around 41°F. On the 1st (Mon), you'll travel back home.
