Cuba, NM

Dining | Lodging | Shopping

Traveling northwest on US550 along the Jemez Mountain Trail loop is the town of Cuba. Cuba is the gateway to the famous Chaco Culture National Historic Park and the San Pedro Parks Wilderness Area. It is also the main route from New Mexico into Southern Colorado, Utah and the Four Corners area.

The town of Cuba, meaning "large tank" or "vat", is a hub city which supports many surrounding communities with goods and services. Cuba was originally named La Laguna, because it was full of water. Settlers drained the area, and it became Cuba when a post office was established in 1887 during the Spanish American War.

Although the population of Cuba is less than 1,000, the combined population of the communities within a 30-mile radius is more than 7,000. Within this small town are several grocery and convenience stores, repair shops, motels and restaurants. For more information contact the Cuba Regional Visitor Center at 505-289-3808.

Fishing, Camping and Hiking abound in the Jemez.

Camping/Hiking – Stock up on hot dogs and cocoa mix at local stores and then venture into the Santa Fe National Forest. Cuba offers a hospitable gateway to this National Recreation Area, wild and scenic rivers, and a National Scenic Byway.
