With 70 miles of pristine beaches, sunny weather all year round, and a mellow, fun-loving attitude it’s no wonder San Diego is one of the great hubs of California surf culture. But sun, sea and sand are only the beginning. Just across the border from Tijuana, the city has its own unique fusion cuisine, “Cali-Baja” – as well as a tempting array of Mexican restaurants and deliciously fresh seafood. Toast marshmallows over a camp fire on La Jolla Beach, wander the beautiful gardens and zoos in Balboa Park or hike along the wild trails of Anza Borrego Desert.

”What I like most about San Diego is the weather. It is also a great city because you have a lot of things to visit: museums, the zoo, the beach, Sea World, bars, the harbor… I would recommend to live in a home stay because you will improve your English.”
