Originally named San Antonio del Rio Colorado (St. Anthony of the Red River), Questa was officially founded in January 1842. The Village of Questa is nestled at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and is home to numerous artists and a mecca for mountain hunting and fishing.

The Village of Questa is the heart of Northern Taos County and is the northern gateway to the Enchanted Circle Scenic Drive. Questa and the surrounding villages have always had a strong tradition of small scale agricultural production and family owned small business. Nestled at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo range of the Southern Rockies, this area has long been a tourist destination for hikers, mountain bikers, hunters and fishermen. The Wild Rivers Recreation Area and the Carson National Forest(link to Carson website and Valle Vidal map) bring visitors to the Questa area year-round.

Questa lies north of Taos, in the "Heart of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains." It offers adventures year round for outdoor enthusiasts: fishing, hunting, picnicking, cycling, camping, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling.
