Find cheap car rental deals in Las Cruces, New Mexico

Las Cruces is a desert oasis in the south of New Mexico, just moments away from the national border. The atmospheric location has led to a wealth of hotels and wellbeing centers popping up in the town. Come for a restorative time in Las Cruces, dipping into the Dripping Springs, or traveling through time in the Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum.

Although the town is compact, it’s still easiest to navigate by car. It’s doubly useful to have a rental car here, as attractions such as the sand dunes and the hot springs are found outside the center. Orbitz can help you find the ideal car for your trip.

Las Cruces and beyond: Desert delights

Las Cruces opens up an arid world of desert sands and striking cities. Rent a car in the city, and then travel to destinations in New Mexico’s wonderful wilderness.

White Sands National Monument

One of the most impressive desert landscapes in the state is just a short trip from Las Cruces. These stunning, lifeless dunes roll for miles, the white sands gleaming in the sunlight. It’s an atmospheric spot for budding photographers to capture alien vistas, but it’s equally fun to visit simply to sled down the dunes at high speeds. Bring your shades – these dunes are bright.

Journey time: Around 50 minutes

Distance: Approximately 50 miles

El Paso

The dramatic border town of El Paso sits on the edge of Mexico and offers a range of outdoor thrills for the energetic traveler. Take the Wyler Aerial Tramway up to the top of Ranger Peak, where you can hike for hours or simply sit and enjoy the views. History buffs should follow the Mission Trail around the city to spot adobe churches and 18th-century architecture.

Journey time: Around 50 minutes

Distance: Approximately 45 miles

Albuquerque

Ancient history and modern America meet in the desert city of Albuquerque. Petroglyphs in the hills speak of the area’s earliest inhabitants, while the Old Town maintains some beautiful examples of pueblo-style architecture. The selection of excellent museums shed light on the history of the region, but it’s best just to explore from your rental car – or hot air balloon – at your own pace.

Journey time: Around 3 hours 15 minutes

Distance: Approximately 220 miles
