Soaking in a hot mineral spring is a great way to relax, detoxify your body, and prepare for an upcoming movie role as spaghetti. Noodlefy yourself with today's Groupon: for $15, you get 50 minutes in a private hot spring for two people at Riverbend Hot Springs in Truth or Consequences (up to a $30 value).
The 105- to 108-degree geothermal pools at Riverbend Hot Springs soothe stresses in private, open-air hot mineral spas with views of the Rio Grande River and Turtleback Mountain. Stone walls and cooling mists surround bathers in three intimate pools—the Cielo, Tierra, and Rio—which, like a solid-gold loofah, rejuvenate bodies with high concentrations of natural minerals. Cielo enchants twosomes with panoramic mountainous views, and Tierra proffers au naturel ripples from a stone-stacked waterfall. Rio perches itself above the banks of the Rio Grande, encouraging romantic dips illuminated by reflected moonlight and staring contests with trout.
Riverbend Hot Springs
Nestled between the Rio Grande and Turtleback Mountain, Riverbend Hot Springs is home to a collection of open-air geothermal pools that draw their high mineral content from the surrounding rock. Five brick-enclosed public pools cascade into one another, ranging in temperature from 100 to 108 degrees. Private pools steam within fenced-in terraces overlooking the river and mountains. They indulge couples and groups with features such as shoulder-massaging waterfalls and decks on which to cool off and count goose bumps.
