Abajo Haven Video



Bill at Abajo greeted us with cheer and helpfulness.  His property was immaculate and was nestled in a beautiful green oasis just outside of town.  We were brought to our private cabin that although rustic, included our own private bathroom that was very clean and roomy.  All of our expectations were exceeded with hospitality and peaceful tranquility with this beautiful resort.  Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, we were brought our magnificent dinner (don't pass up the BBQ dinner for just $32 - worth every penny).  It was brought to us very discreetly just when we requested it and was the most delicious, exquisite food we had our entire trip.  After dinner, we received our dessert and Bill generously started our very own campfire right outside our cabin door.  I just can't say enough about this place, it's class, peacefulness and the hospitality of the owners.  Bravo!

One of our favorite day hikes is in SOUTH MULE CANYON. There are several ruins in this beautiful canyon. It is a very easy walk for you and for children. You can make it a half day hike or an all day adventure. There are many places to eat lunch and be inspired by nature and the ancient culture that lived here 700 to 1,000 years ago.
