Santa Rosa Blue Hole

Santa Rosa Blue Hole, New Mexico - Located just off of the famous Route 66 in New Mexico's arid climes is the Santa Rosa Blue Hole, a natural swimming hole that has hides a system of underwater caves which were unexplored until 2013.


The Blue Hole, Santa Rosa, New Mexico The name is spot on. It’s just a giant, 80 ft deep blue hole, but it’s a swimming and scuba diving dream come true. And at a year round temperature of 64 degrees, you don’t have to wait till summer to wade in these tranquil, cerulean blue waters.


Santa Rosa Blue Hole - This is a beautiful place in a town where there's not much else. It's on the old Route 66, so if you're heading to Albuquerque via that route, make sure to stop off and see it. And if you don't mind cold water (62ºF year round), take a suit and have a dip.

North America’s Best (and Secret) Swimming Holes

North America’s 8 Best (and Secret) Swimming Holes ... Hamilton Pool, Texas Our second Texas swimming hole, comes by way of the Hamilton Pool grotto. This historic pool is located just 45 minutes outside Austin. In the summer it can get very busy so best to get there early. Also, you definitely want to call or check to see if it's open. I visited in September of 2014, drove all the way there and it was closed due to some clean up they were doing.


Santa Rosa, New Mexico has a cool Route 66 landmark. A popular dive destination and SCUBA fave. The Blue Hole has a diameter of 80 feet but spans more than 130 feet at the bottom. A great reason to bring your swim trunks on your Route 66 road trip.
