San Diego has been named as one of the best cities to live within the United States on more than one occasion, and has a very affordable cost of living. San Diego's sunny climate and warm breeze, sunny skies, beautiful beaches, islands and peninsulas attract thousands of people from all over the world and enables sportsmen to practise their favourites activities all year round.
San Diego boasts more than 86 golf courses, 1,200 tennis courts, 60 miles of beaches and a water park covering about 2000 hectares. To the east, an hour's drive from the city centre, you'll find the alpine landscape of Mounts Laguna, and just two hours away from this impressive mountain scenery, hot winds blow through the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. San Diego caters to everyone's tastes, and the natural beauty of the surrounding scenery will take your breath away. The icing on the cake? Mexico is located just 20 minutes south of the city.
