About Southeastern New Mexico

The Southeastern portion of New Mexico is a rich and geologically diverse area, encompassing thriving ranch lands, pristine forests, majestic mountains, and rolling terrain capped by the most spectacular skies found anywhere in the world.  Just as the land of this impressive state is unique and historic, so is the culture. New Mexico embodies a heritage that dates back over a thousand years — from diverse Native American tribes of the past and present, to a mixture of Spanish, Native American and Mexican cultures that have made this region a blend of pride and tradition.  Southeastern New Mexico is home to ranchers, farmers, artisans, retirees, and many successful and established businesses.

Flying W Diamond Ranch is a stone’s throw from the unique communities of Ruidoso and Capitan. Ruidoso, New Mexico, long known as America’s best-kept secret, is a beautiful mountain community with four distinct but mild seasons. Nestled in the Rocky Mountains of southern New Mexico, Ruidoso is surrounded by the Lincoln National Forest and is a mecca for those who enjoy outdoor activities.

The mountain village is home to the world-class Spencer Theater, Ski Apache – a fantastic family ski destination with 55 runs for both skiing and snowboarding, and the Ruidoso Downs Race Track – home of the All American Futurity. The area also features a variety of top rated golf courses, art galleries and museums. For more information about Ruidoso, Click Here.

Capitan, New Mexico, is a cozy and charming community that hails as the hometown of Smokey Bear. The laid-back lifestyle of Capitan offers something for everyone from the Capitan Rodeo, to great restaurants, art galleries and jewelry stores.
