Arrey is located 22 miles south of Truth or Consequences, a mile or two off Interstate 25. It was founded as “Bonito” in 1890. A post office was established in 1901 and the town was renamed for its first postmaster, Urbano Arrey. Some of his descendants still reside in the area.

If you are not in a rush to get there, take the scenic route — Old Highway 187 — past Caballo Lake. Today, Arrey has a grade school and a church. It is situated among farms where New Mexico chile, cotton, onions, pumpkins, alfalfa, and other crops are grown.
