With Santa Fe, N.M.’s new Geocaching Challenge, clients can go on a high-tech treasure hunt through historic downtown Santa Fe using GPS devices. Geocaching has travelers use a GPS device and specific coordinates to find interesting locations and their associated hidden caches.

To participate, clients need to pick up a free Santa Fe Adventure Passport from www.santafe.org or by picking it up in person from the Santa Fe Visitors Center or the Santa Fe Convention & Visitors Bureau. Passports contain specific coordinates for eight locations and instructions for finding clues in each place. The second component to the challenge — a GPS device — is available for rental from Santa Fe Mountain Adventures for $25.

During the challenge, participants use their GPS devices and the coordinates listed in their passports to reach the desired destination. Once they find a location, their passport is stamped and they can travel onto the next venue.

The family-friendly Santa Fe Geocache Challenge takes several hours and covers about two miles.
