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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Guadalupe Mountains National Park and Giant Dome. And it doesn't end there: explore the striking landscape at Lion's Tail, explore the fascinating underground world of Slaughter Canyon Cave, and surround yourself with nature on Carlsbad Caverns Natural Entrance Tour.

To find traveler tips, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, go to the Carlsbad Caverns National Park trip planner .

In March, plan for daily highs up to 74°F, and evening lows to 41°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
