Imagine walking barefoot through that water and feeling the sand shift under your toes. And looking out to see the surfers playing in the ever present surf. And further out - a sailboat, the spout of a whale, a pod of dolphins frolicking with the surfers in the waves, a pelican gliding inches off the water, riding the wind of a forming wave before it breaks.

Trip Advisor - Forum for Information on Visiting Del Mar

A few years ago while planning a trip to the Mayan Riviera, my wife found a travel forum with questions and answers by visitors to the region on all the properties there. We were looking for a family friendly resort that 3 teenagers would find fun, a tall order. After visiting this forum, we had an amazing amount of information about the resort we selected - photos, personal stories and people we could contact who had been there. That site was TripAdvisor.com. I discovered it is ideal for properties in and around Del Mar. It really is a full service site, and actually can give you information and reviews for nearly anywhere in the world.

Since I write about Del Mar, I have included links to many of the hotels available. Some of the reviews are sparse, but as you visit, please feel free to add your own experiences and ratings.Here's a link to the main site on Del Mar lodging, airfare, and car rentals. You can click on "Forums" for the reviews.

These are just a few of the properties in or near Del Mar. Expand your search to include La Jolla, Solana Beach, Cardiff, Encinitas or even San Diego for a much broader selection. Rooms in and near Del Mar book very early before the race season and fair, so you may need to look a bit further if you're a spontaneous traveler (like me!)
