The city of Carlsbad is a unique coastal community located 35 miles north of downtown San Diego.

Surrounded by mountains and nestled between the Pacific Ocean and two lovely lagoons – Batiquitos to the south and Buena Vista to the north– it is no wonder that Carlsbad is home to top-rated resorts, such as the La Costa Resort & Spa and the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort. With its diverse nature and the wonderful weather all year round, you will never be short on things to do in Carlsbad.

In addition to the two boarding lagoons, Aqua Hedionda in the middle of Carlsbad is a popular spot to enjoy all kinds of water sports.
