How to get to La Jolla?

Air travel

Travelers are recommended to fly into San Diego International Airport (SAN). Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is a second option, but it is a two-hour drive from San Diego.

From San Diego Airport to La Jolla Shores Hotel (about 12 miles or 20 km), one can take a taxi or a shuttle. This website lists several taxi and shuttle companies to find out information on rates or to make reservations.
