San Francisco Highlights
San Francisco is known for many things and lends itself to several nicknames including ‘The Golden Gate City’, ‘The City of Fog’, and ‘The City by the Bay’. And with its welcoming locals and wonderful laid-back vibes, this is the city that has it all.
Whether you’re after some quirky one-off clothing items or some high-end designer gear, San Francisco has it all. Head to Union Square if you’re in the mood for a spending spree – or perhaps just some window shopping if you’ve understandably spent all your money on burritos. And for a splash of 60s nostalgia, take a trip to the colourful streets of Haight-Ashbury and purchase a pair of those flares you’ve always wanted!
Amazing Food Scene
San Francisco is a foodie’s paradise and known worldwide for its culinary creativity and delicious food innovations, which have been influenced by the cultures and flavours of the waves of immigrants settling in the city over the decades. Give your tastebuds a party and try classic dishes like Mission-style burritos, clam chowder and the delectable ‘cioppino’, a mouthwatering Italian-American fish stew that typically includes Dungeness crab, shrimp, mussels, scallops, squid and more.
San Francisco showcases its pride and progress through its many must-see historic landmarks. From wandering the former island prison of Alcatraz to cycling amongst the clouds along the Golden Gate Bridge and riding the old-charm cable cars that glide through the streets - your days in San Francisco will be equally unique and magical.
It might not be the best place to swim on California’s Pacific Coast, but San Francisco’s beaches are beautiful, brisk, and built for walks, paddling, sunbathing, and soaking up casual city vibes during your downtime. Dotted around the Bay are swathes of pretty sands, hiking trails, historic ruins and secluded coves for breathing in that crisp ocean air – and with stunning Golden Gate Bridge views, there are few more enticing spots to spend your days.
Cancun is Mexico’s tourist hub and a much-loved holiday destination that appeals to families seeking fun in the sun, couples on romantic getaways, or groups ready to party the night away. Here is the perfect combination of ancient and modern, unspoiled nature and a vibrant beach party culture, together with a whole lot of sun-soaked relaxation.
With some of the clearest, bluest seas, Cancun is a great sport for indulging in some watersports.

There are also opportunities for sailing, water skiing and fishing on most beaches

San Francisco & Cancun Holiday FAQs
San Francisco & Cancun Holiday FAQs
San Francisco & Cancun Holiday FAQs
One of the best times of year to plan San Francisco and Cancun twin-centre holidays is during the spring months, between March and May. San Francisco enjoys pleasant temperatures ranging from 15°C to 24°C during this season, so it’s perfect for exploring the city's landmarks - and tends to be less busy than in summer. In Cancun, you’ll have sunny, warm weather which is ideal for beach activities.
Alternatively, you can consider a visit in the autumn (September to November), if you don’t mind the cooler weather in San Francisco. At this time of year, Cancun experiences a more temperate climate as the scorching summer heat subsides.
Summer is also an option, but in San Francisco, summers are known for their characteristic ‘June Gloom’, when the city can be shrouded in fog and experience cooler temperatures, ranging from 12°C to 21°C. With this in mind, Cancun and the Mexican Caribbean are in their peak season during the summer months; so if you do decide to visit at this time, expect hot and humid weather, with temperatures averaging around 28°C to 32°C.
For the majority of the year, San Francisco operates on Pacific Time (PT) which is typically 8 hours behind the UK, while Cancun is 6 hours behind the UK.
The time difference between San Francisco and Cancun is 2 hours, with Cancun’s clock running ahead. It’s worth bearing in mind that the time difference between Cancun and San Francisco may vary during different times of the year, depending on whether DST is in effect in both locations.
When flying to San Francisco, most flights from the UK depart from London Heathrow (LHR) and London Gatwick (LGW) airports, with plenty of direct flights to San Francisco International Airport (SFO).
When travelling to Cancun, your main arrival airport would be Cancun International Airport (CUN), which is well-connected to various international cities, including London and San Francisco, and offers a wide range of flights.
At Ocean Florida, our prices are guaranteed up to 36 months in advance of your holiday date, so you can secure your dream twin-centre holiday with an initial low deposit and pay the remainder in monthly instalments. Perfect!
When packing for your San Francisco twin-centre holiday, take into account the time of year that you plan on visiting, as the weather and temperature can vary significantly - particularly in San Francisco.
The city often experiences cool and foggy weather, so bringing layers is a good approach. Sweaters, a light jacket, long trousers and comfy walking shoes should keep you prepared for the city’s changeable weather and hilly terrain.
In Cancun, the warm and humid climate means that you’ll want to bring shorts, t-shirts, and swimwear for enjoying the beaches and famous cenotes.
Of course, the time of year can significantly impact the weather in both destinations, so do check the local forecast before you head off on your Cancun twin-centre holiday, too.
San Francisco is packed with choice; one thing’s for sure - you won’t be bored here! The city has a whole host of attractions, making it a treasure trove for travellers. One must-see is, of course, the Golden Gate Bridge, which is an iconic symbol of the city. Stroll across this magnificent suspension bridge, take in the panoramic views of San Francisco Bay, and snap some great photos of the stunning scenery.
Another essential stop is Alcatraz Island, which is best known for its historic prison. You can take a scenic ferry ride over to the island, where you can then explore the former penitentiary, learning about its notorious inmates and interesting history throughout the years.
Lastly, venture to Fisherman's Wharf, a vibrant waterfront district that’s brimming with seafood restaurants, street performers, and the famous sea lions at Pier 39. Explore its eclectic shops, eat clam chowder and soak up the lively atmosphere.
Cancun has a wonderful blend of natural beauty, cultural richness, and vibrant entertainment. First on the list of unmissable sights is Chichen Itza, one of Mexico's most renowned archaeological sites and a famous UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore the ancient Mayan ruins, including the iconic El Castillo pyramid, and learn more about the fascinating history and culture of this ancient civilization.
Next, take a day trip to Isla Mujeres, a picturesque island just off the coast of Cancun, which has jaw-droppingly beautiful beaches, crystal-clear waters and vibrant marine life - so don’t forget your snorkel!
For a touch of adventure, head into the lush, forested jungles surrounding Rio Secreto, a network of subterranean caves and rivers that were formed over millions of years. Wade through crystal-clear waters, spot incredible rock formations, and immerse yourself in the mystique of this subterranean wonderland.
In San Francisco, public transportation is easy and convenient - the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system connects all of the key areas, including the airport, to Downtown San Francisco. The city's famous cable cars and buses also make it easy to make your way around the city.
In Cancun, there is a public bus system, as well as plenty of taxis, however some visitors do find that renting a car can give a little more flexibility if you want to explore the area. Many tour companies do offer transportation as part of their excursions, so it’s not necessary to have a car to explore attractions like Chichen Itza, Tulum, and the cenotes.
San Francisco has plenty of activities for the whole family to enjoy. Enjoy the interactive wonders of the Children's Creativity Museum, where you can keep kids busy by engaging in hands-on art and technology exhibits. A trip to Alcatraz Island is an exciting adventure for everybody, and they even have audio tours tailored specifically for younger visitors. Golden Gate Park has a series of playgrounds, including Koret Children's Quarter, where the little ones can burn off some energy.
In Cancun, you can enjoy family adventures at Xcaret Park, an eco-archaeological wonderland with underground rivers, cultural performances, and exciting wildlife encounters suitable for kids. A day trip to Isla Mujeres has family-friendly beaches and plenty of snorkeling opportunities in calm, shallow waters. And, of course, Cancun's pristine, white-sand beaches and gentle waves make it ideal for fun family days at the beach.
Cancun is home to some of the most stunning beaches in the world, each with their own unique charm. Playa Delfines, often referred to as the "Dolphin Beach," is famous for its soft, powdery sands and panoramic views of the Caribbean sea that wouldn’t look out of place on a postcard.
Playa Norte on Isla Mujeres has shallow, crystal-clear waters, making it perfect for families with little ones who like to make a splash.
Playa Marlin has a whole host of watersports and a vibrant atmosphere, while Playa Gaviota Azul is close to Cancun's bustling Hotel Zone and has calm, warm waters, which make it great for swimming.
