Visit San Juan Capistrano Medical Spas and More!

We do have many customers that choose to fly in from all of the world and travel to San Juan Capistrano, CA for their med spa treatments at med spa by Alana. For this reason we decided to create this page to help plan flights, hotels, things to do, where to eat, and things to do in San Juan based on our 20+ years of local experience of living in the area.

Flying Here:

Recommended Airport – Santa Ana – John Wayne Airport is by far the closest and easiest airport.

Not all airlines have a flight to SNA, but you can also fly into Los Angeles or San Diego. If you do, we recommend you rent a car and avoid traveling on the roads from 7AM-10AM, and 2PM-8PM to avoid hours of traffic.

Which Hotel To Pick:
There are many options for staying in San Juan Capistrano, but we have a few favorites!

Our number 1.. Inn at the Mission San Juan Capistrano. Its a new hotel, and within walking distance to our location.

If you want to stay closer to the beach, we recommend Ritz Carlton Laguna (actually in Dana Point) or Laguna Cliffs Marriot in Dana Point.

If you fly into SNA, we recommend Uber/Lyft, unless you really want to have your own car, then rent one for sure. If you fly into LAX or San Diego, we recommend you rent a car. You can do Uber/Lyft, but it would be an expensive trip!

Once you get to San Juan Capistrano, they have a free trolley that connects with the free trolleys in san clemente, laguna beach, and dana point. And the best part is they are all FREE!

San Juan Capistrano does have an Amtrack train station, but we never really take the train. It's kind of a hassle.

Another easy option would be to rent a bike in San Juan and explore the endless bike paths available!
