Santa Fe continuously ranks among the world's top holiday destinations, attracting visitors with its unusual combination of scenic beauty, rich history, cultural diversity, and high concentration of performing arts venues, fine restaurants, and interesting attractions.
Start off your visit on the 16th (Tue): contemplate the long history of Loretto Chapel, take in the exciting artwork at Mama's Minerals, steep yourself in history at Santa Fe Plaza, then explore the world behind art at Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take in the dramatic natural features at Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument, then see the interesting displays at Museum of International Folk Art, and then get to know the fascinating history of Canyon Road.

To see other places to visit, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, read Santa Fe tour itinerary planner.

Cozumel, Mexico to Santa Fe is an approximately 10.5- hour combination of flight and car. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Cozumel to Santa Fe due to the time zone difference. Plan for slightly colder nights when traveling from Cozumel in June since evenings lows in Santa Fe dip to 15°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Wed) so you can travel to Albuquerque.

Albuquerque remains one of the state's secret jewels, as its tourist attractions are often overshadowed by the more popular holiday destination of Santa Fe.
Change things up with a short trip to Bandelier National Monument in Los Alamos (about 1h 20 min away). There's still lots to do: get to know the fascinating history of Albuquerque Old Town, make a trip to Madonna of the Trail, see the interesting displays at New Mexico Steam Locomotive and Railroad Historical Society, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Albuquerque Biological Park.

For maps, photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read Albuquerque route planner.

Take a bus from Santa Fe to Albuquerque in an hour. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a train. Traveling from Santa Fe in June, Albuquerque is somewhat warmer at night with lows of 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
