ABQ is typically less expensive, but you will need to take the Groome Transportation shuttle to Santa Fe. The cost is $72 + tax round trip, and the ride takes approximately 1 hour. The first shuttle from ABQ departs at 5:15am and the last one departs at 12:30am. They will drop you off at your hotel. We suggest the option of picking up a rental car at the airport, if exploring our incredible landscape is something of interest to you.
Before flying into ABQ, we suggest checking flights to SAF. When you include the ABQ shuttle it is sometimes competitive. Santa Fe city proper is about 10 miles away from SAF, but it is very easy to get an Uber, Lyft, or a town car to transport you to your accommodation. One may also rent a car from SAF. Unfortunately there is no public transportation from SAF, as it is a very small airport.
We will list partner accommodations in March. You can also check out our Visit Santa Fe page on our CURRENTS New Media website for our suggestions on where to stay, eat and visit.
