Carlsbad travel tips

Carlsbad has bus, train, and shuttle services as part of the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System. Day passes are very affordable. If you’re flying to Carlsbad, you can either rent a car, use a ride-hailing service, or take public transportation. The car will be most convenient, as it’s much quicker than public transportation. If you do use public transportation, the scenic Coaster Commuter Rail will take you to two stops: Carlsbad Village and Carlsbad Poinsettia. Once in Carlsbad, we advise driving or using a car-hailing service, since public transportation can add a lot of extra time to your trip. Carlsbad Village is a highly accessible and walkable neighborhood, being close to Carlsbad State Beach and other attractions. Hotels in Carlsbad Village include Beach Terrace Inn and Ocean Palms Beach Resort. Carlsbad hotels near Carlsbad Poinsettia tend to be cheaper than hotels in Carlsbad Village.
