We expect that, if relevant, you will make your own travel and lodging arrangements to/in Santa Fe.
Hotel: We suggest all participants stay at The Hotel Santa Fe during your visit to Santa Fe located in the downtown area of the city. Please call (505) 982-1200 to reserve your room. We will provide daily shuttles from Hotel Santa Fe to SFI.
If you will be driving, here is a map from SFI to the hotel: http://bit.ly/1zPy6Iu
High Altitude: Please note that Santa Fe is located in northern New Mexico at an elevation of 7,000 feet (2,130 meters) in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. High altitudes can be stressful to your body if you are not accustomed. Here are some tips on how to prevent altitude sickness:
1.Drink lots of water: What you might think is altitude sickness might actually be dehydration, caused by the higher rate of water vapor lost from the lungs at higher altitudes. Avoid caffeine and alcohol, as these can increase the likelihood of dehydration.
2.Take it easy: The last thing you would want to do is to overexert yourself. It is harder to breathe at higher altitude and even if you are fit, you can still feel the effects if you push yourself too hard too quickly. Resting at the altitude at which you became ill is often the most effective remedy for altitude sickness (other than descent). You'll usually feel better in 1-2 (or up to 4) days.
