While many people may picture New Mexico as an arid desert landscape, the state actually boasts a diverse geography including majestic mountains and lush forests. Nestled at the base of the El Cerro de Los Lunas Mountains, Jubilee at Los Lunas features spectacular mountain backdrops as well as a wide variety of amenities and activities.


Jubilee at Los Lunas is a relatively new community which was begun by Jenamar Communities in 2006. This gated, age-restricted community provides the intimate feel of small town living, yet it is within close proximity of big city cultural and recreational attractions. Albuquerque is only twenty miles north of the community, and the surrounding Los Lunas area has many of its own shopping and dining centers.

The Los Lunas area has an interesting history. Though it was diverted through Albuquerque in the 1930s, the original Route 66 ran through Las Lunas for over ten years. Just outside the town, Tome Hill is a well-known landmark along the El Camino Real which offers a rich archaeological and anthropological history of the area. Today, Los Lunas residents can enjoy fine dining at The Luna-Otero Mansion, a historic home which dates back to 1881.
