Treat yourself to a stress free vacation that doesn’t include the regular headaches like baggage fees, flight delays or jet lag. Take a look at these 10 tips on how to plan a fun, stress-free staycation you will love.
- Easy Planning
Once you decide on how long you need to get-a-way you can plan the activities. Take some time to do touristy stuff. We all have those activities we put off because we are a local. What have you always wanted to do but never carved out time to actually do them? Don’t worry if you need help we can point you in the direction of some amazing attractions.
- More Bang For Your Buck
One perk of a staycation is you are often eligible to receive resident pricing on activities. Score! This is perfect for big families because you can still have a fun getaway on a small budget.
- Explore Hidden Gems
Open your eyes to the amazing and unique natural landmarks that surround you. Take advantage of hiking trails and historical landmarks like the Tent Rocks.
- Recharge Your Batteries
We live in a time where we are always on the go and it’s hard for us to unplug from the buzz of technology. Take some time to turn off all your alarms and allow yourself to naturally wake in the morning to our home cooked breakfast.
- Connect With Your Inner Self
Reflect on feelings, thoughts and goals you normally are too busy to think about in your everyday schedule. Take some time to yourself and relax in our inner courtyard and stargaze at the beautiful New Mexico sky then treat yourself to long bubble bath before bed.
- Set Your Own Pace
Most of the time we need a vacation to recover from our vacation. That is not the case when you plan a staycation at Hacienda Vargas. By setting your own pace you can allow yourself to be in the moment.
- The Most Romantic Sunsets At Your Fingertips
Cuddle up with a loved one and watch the watercolor sunsets. Beachside sunsets have nothing on the New Mexico sky, which has been inspiration to many artists. Explore the galleries of Albuquerque, Bernalillo, Placitas or Santa Fe and you can take home a beautiful display so you never forget your stay.
- Find a Home Away From Home
Hacienda Vargas offers the grace and elegance of historical New Mexico in the rural setting of Algodones, just 20 minutes from Albuquerque and 35 from Santa Fe. From the moment you arrive at Hacienda Vargas, you will be delighted by the ambience and comfort of this historic inn.
- Experience Local Brew and Wine
Whether you’re a beer or a wine connoisseur you can find a unique local brewery or winery nearby that will knock your socks off. Plan some time to experience a tasting.
10. The Food
Let’s face it New Mexico is home to the best food. Treat yourself to a dinner you deserve. Though New Mexican cuisine might be the first option that comes to mind, Albuquerque, Bernalillo, Placitas and Santa Fe melting pots offer many different and exciting cuisines.
