San Diego International Airport (SAN) is near the San Diego Bay just off I-5. Rail transportation is available 365 days a year and bus route 992 operates from 5 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.
Typical flight times from SAN to Cancun International Airport (CUN) are usually around four and a half hours. CUN is a mere 25 minutes from the city of Cancun. Local city buses, hotel shuttles and taxis are all readily available upon arrival.
Cancun is famous for its beaches, and with good reason. The "Hotel Zone," a 14-mile peninsula, has lots of hotels with boast beachfront rooms.
Meanwhile, Playa Caracol beach on the northern side of the peninsula is dotted with bars and restaurants. Its shallow water makes it perfect for lounging.
If you prefer more active beach activities, try the east-side beaches; Punta Nizuc has wind perfect for surfing and view fit for photo albums. If you prefer sightseeing, go on a day trip to Chichen Itza, an ancient Mayan temple.
Weather in Cancun is hot year-round, with averages never below 71. The sun can be a lot for you to take in bunches, however, so pack a lot of sunscreen. Thin long-sleeve shirts are another option to avoid burning.
