Algodones is a census-designated place located in New Mexico, United States.
Algodones is good for those who prefer a quiet atmosphere, as the streets tend to be peaceful - although that is not the case near one of the railway lines or US Highway 85. Parks aren't well-distributed, which results in them being very hard to access from the majority of locations within the census-designated place.
In Algodones, the majority of the dwellings are single detached homes, and mobile homes are also present in the housing stock. This census-designated place offers mainly four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. About 95% of the units in the census-designated place are occupied by home owners and 5% are rented. This census-designated place did not experience a single housing boom; the construction of new dwellings in Algodones is spread throughout multiple decades in recent history.
Locals may find it very difficult to access high schools and primary schools on foot. With respect to eating, property owners in Algodones almost always have to use a vehicle to travel to the closest grocery store.
Driving is an excellent transportation option in this census-designated place. It is especially convenient to park, and the street layout is reasonably appropriate for cars. On the other hand, Algodones is not very conducive to walking as almost no daily errands can be run without needing to use a vehicle.
