I’ve had a few e-mails from people with questions about getting to Santa Fe, and thought I’d address them generally here:
To fly to Santa Fe you don’t actually have to fly to Santa Fe: and in fact hardly anyone going to Santa Fe does. Santa Fe does have its own airport, but it’s fairly small and expensive to get to. (And largely used by people with only one name: Oprah, Cher, etc.) Most people fly into the Albuquerque International Sunport, which is only about 55 miles south and much more widely and inexpensively accessible.
From there, you can either take the train, which drops you off right across the street from the Hotel Santa Fe, the shuttle, or rent a car. Once you’re in downtown Santa Fe, everything you’ll need is within walking distance, so a car is not necessary, although if you plan to explore the wider environs it’s highly recommended.
Hope this helps. Contact me with any questions.
