Add a little Caribbean flair to your sun-drenched San Diego life and hop on an easy six and a half-hour flight to colorful Cancun, Mexico, where reef snorkeling at sites like Garrafon, and ancient Mayan relics keep you entertained. Your adventure begins with a jaunt to San Diego International Airport (SAN), via your own car or the abundant shuttles, commuter trains and local buses. You can even go full-on California-mode and bike the waterfront pathway to the airport.
Exploring the festive Cancun area is simple. Rent a car or use plentiful bus routes, squiring visitors to and from Cancun's hotel zone. Ferries are a terrific option for heading out to Isla Mujeres to dive the legendary Cave of the Sleeping Shark, marvel at San Bajo's giant sea turtle hatching grounds, and wander the Mayan temple ruins. Adventurous travelers can also journey south to roam the Tulum archaeological site's ancient cliff-top castillo and dramatic beach.
Bustling Cancun International Airport (CUN) receives international visitors at Terminals 2 and 3, with a variety of duty-free shops and familiar restaurants dotted around. Once a quiet fishing port, Cancun's siren song of powder-soft beaches and ancient heritage began luring travelers in the 1970s. Cancun boasts sunny weather nearly year-round, and the tropical humidity is well served by a good shade hat.
