    We rented a car from the airport, but there are several tourist businesses and other hotels nearby that could probably help with this. Also, try contacting Linda Vista directly about this. The staff was very helpful.

    It's been a long time since we were there. We flew in late and spent one night close to the airport, and the next day took a shuttle to Linda Vista. I believe the ride lasted two or three hours?
