Luxury holidays in San Antonio

When to go

Between late June and early September, San Antonio hits the 40˚C+ mark, so if you can’t handle the heat, pick a different time of year to visit.

Getting there

  • Planes

    San Antonio’s international airport is 10 miles north of downtown | but for a bigger chance of a direct flight | use Austin as the hub. From here | it’s an easy hour-long drive to the south west along the I-35.
  • Trains

    San Antonio’s Amtrak (www.amtrak.com) station is on the Texas Eagle (Chicago to Los Angeles) and Sunset Limited (New Orleans to Los Angeles) routes. The stop is on Hoefgen Avenue.
  • Automobiles

    Driving and parking can often prove problematic in this southern city. In downtown | there are several one-way streets | and the city doesn’t follow a grid system. The city has a trolley system | or streetcar | which stops at all of downtown’s main attractions.
  • Taxis

    Hiring a car is your best getting-around bet but a Yellow Cab (+1 210 222 2222) can help out.
