New Mexico's Albuquerque is a city of natural beauty and buzzing multiculturalism. It's an ethnically diverse region, with busy neighbourhoods showcasing Hispanic, Latino, Anglo and Native American influences and traditions – along with plenty of delicious food. The surrounding Sandia and Manzano Mountains glow pink as the sun sets. They give the city a warm and dry climate, making it a top spot for outdoor sports whatever the season.
The hostels in Albuquerque offer a comfortable home away from home. Feel like you're staying with relatives in an Albuquerque hostel with homely touches, like a porch with plump cushioned chairs and free breakfast. Most hostels provide free Wi-Fi, air con and common rooms for socialising. There's usually a kitchen for self catering and some Albuquerque hostels offer cooked meals, which saves you doing the washing up.
Discover Albuquerque through its different neighbourhoods. The lively districts of Downtown and Nob Hill, both once part of Route 66, are favourites for their vibrant nightlife. Here, you'll find breweries, bars and clubs with live music, alongside an eclectic collection of shops and restaurants. Old Town, the heart of Albuquerque since the early 18th century, is the city's cultural centre and is filled with galleries and museums. Barelas and the South Valley offer a taste of the region's Hispanic heritage with numerous New Mexican eateries and the National Hispanic Cultural Center.
Some of the best things to do in Albuquerque are found outdoors. Head to the Sandia Mountains to ski the slopes or jump aboard the Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway to the 3,163-metre peak for views over the Rio Grande Valley. Take to the skies in a hot air balloon or time your visit with the annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Outside the city is Valles Caldera National Preserve, with sleigh rides in winter and mountain biking in summer.
Albuquerque can be reached by air, train and coach. Albuquerque International Sunport is less than 30 minutes via bus from the city's Alvarado Transportation Center, where trains and Greyhound coaches arrive from around the state. To travel around the city and its neighbourhoods there's a local bus service and a network of cycle routes, which are handy if you hire a bike. With its wide roads, driving is quite straight forward and there's often plenty of parking (some free) near the top sites.
