We are first timers to New Mexico and will be spending May 9th to the 16th in Santa Fe. Have been faithfully reading this forum for some time now and have a pretty good idea of what we would like to do and see. We are three couples in our early sixties and all enjoy active vacations and adventures. The guys would like to do a full day rafting the Taos box. Have seen several rafting companies mentioned. Any suggestions as to which to choose and do we need reservations ahead of time for midweek trip?
While we're rafting the ladies would like a spa experience. Have seen Ten Thousand Waves and Absolute Nirvana mentioned along with others. Again, any significant differences or personal recommendations?
Finally, being avid trout fishermen, are there any good trout streams nearby that would warrant some time pursuing the fine art of angling?
Thanks for any help--I love these forums and already have obtained some really valuable info.
