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.
When in Carlsbad Caverns National Park, make a side trip to see Guadalupe Peak in Guadalupe Mountains National Park, approximately 1h 50 min away. There's much more to do: Head underground at Big Room, look for all kinds of wild species at Carlsbad Caverns Natural Entrance Tour, contemplate the waterfront views at Rattlesnake Springs, and take in the dramatic natural features at Bottomless Pit.

For maps, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Carlsbad Caverns National Park trip planner .
