4.  Tell us about a perfect day in San Diego.

Warm and sunny in the 70’s, with a light breeze and light ocean breeze (pretty much 80% of the days here in San Diego). The day would start with a walk along the 101, stopping at one of the many great breakfast spots then hitting the beach for a day of fun in the sun and enjoying the surf.  The key to fully enjoying “America’s Finest City” is to explore the outdoors and engage in the many activities San Diego has to offer.

5.  What are some special amenities available at La Costa?

Guests can enjoy the #1 Spa in southern California, The Spa at La Costa, where nature inspires, invigorates and indulges the senses through a fresh Spa Café menu and all-new treatments and interiors.  La Costa also offers two PGA Championship golf courses, six pools and 17 tennis courts.  For the foodie, we offer a brand new farm-to-table menu at BlueFire Grill, debuted by our new Chef de Cuisine, Greg Frey Jr.
