Getting to La Jolla

Travelers are recommended to fly into San Diego International Airport (SAN). Los Angeles (LAX) is another option, but it is about two hours away.

It is possible to take a taxi/UBER/Lyft from the airport. The ride will take about 30 minutes and cost about $50.

Some shuttle services are listed on the San Diego Airport website.

Visitors can always rent a car as well.
