Planning an Albuquerque vacation? Think of the high desert region that encompasses Corrales, Albuquerque, and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Over and over we hear our guests say - "We had no idea there is so much to see and do here." "We wish we had planned to stay longer." Or "We ran out of time." Never has a guest said, "We stayed too long."

Nestled beneath the Sandia Mountains in the Rio Grande Valley, the Corrales/Albuquerque/Rio Rancho area is loaded with exciting Albuquerque area attractions and opportunities for enthusiasts of all interests, whether it's culture, history, the arts, or nature and outdoor activities. All of it is embraced in wonderful weather, incredible scenery, and warm southwest hospitality. The Chocolate Turtle Bed and Breakfast is conveniently located in the heart of central New Mexico.

Since we can not begin to describe in this space all there is to see and do close to the Chocolate Turtle, we have provided a sampling of what a Corrales/Albuquerque, NM vacation has to offer. Links to Web sites have been provided where available. You can also check out Dining and Shopping, one of our other Web pages.
