San Diego Salsa Festival

It’s getting close to that time of year again, time for the 2nd Annual San Diego Salsa Festival ! Hard to believe a whole year has gone by, but I’m glad this fun event is coming up soon. This year the event is taking place September 19th through the 21st .

For those of you planning to attend the San Diego Salsa Festival this year I’ll be writing a number of articles with some helpful information, especially for those coming from out of town.

If you are traveling to San Diego via air, most people will be able to easily find flights that arrive at Lindbergh Field . Lindbergh Field is San Diego’s main airport and offers domestic and international flight options to travelers. If you are on a budget and don’t mind putting in a little work to save a buck another option might be the Tijuana International Airport . I recently took a family member there for an international flight to Colombia, South America and he was able to save at least $600 on his ticket.  The only catch is that you need to make your way from Tijuana into the US and this could add additional wait time due to border crossing.

Once you arrive, you’ll need to get to the venue where the San Diego Salsa Festival is being hosted. This year the San Diego Salsa Festival will be at the Four Points Sheraton once again, same place as last year. If you stay at this hotel the reservations for choice rooms could be pricey, but you can try finding good rates through , as this website will allow you to compare over 30 major reservation sites in one search. I did a specific search for the Four Points Hotel and found that the rates are pretty good.  Check it out here:

Apart from getting here and finding your lodging, you’ll want to explore San Diego during your stay and there are plenty of rental car agencies available for car rentals. You could take advantage of public transportation to get to places like Downtown San Diego most notably taking the iconic San Diego Trolley to travel around.

I’ll keep you posted on more things to consider for your trip to San Diego as it gets closer to the 2nd Annual San Diego Salsa Festival.

Hi everyone.

For any of you traveling in the near future I wanted to share with you a resource for finding out about local dance venues around the world. SalsaPower is a site that works with local correspondents to update people visiting their areas with useful information about venues, bands, and other dance resources.

For example, I just took on responsibilities for covering San Diego as the local correspondent for this region. If anyone has updated information to give to me regarding their dance services, band information, or venues not already listed please let me know so I can update the list.

Safe Dance Travels!
