More About San Diego

Overview

Whether you’re after a relaxing weekend getaway or an action-packed vacation, San Diego checks both boxes. Known for its dramatic sea cliffs, there are numerous spots to take in the sweeping ocean view, from Sunset Cliff to La Jolla Cove. A weekend drive down the coast alone is worth the visit. San Diego is also home to plenty of art galleries, delicious seafood restaurants and championship golf courses. If you're looking for more of a thrill, surf lessons are widely offered, or check out Belmont Park, a historic amusement park that opened in 1925. Who said history has to be boring?

It is important to arrive at the airport at least 90 minutes prior to departure for all domestic flights, and two to three hours prior to departure for international flights.

Required Documents: Canadian citizens must travel with valid government-issued photo identification (such as a driver’s licence). Rules are subject to change at any time, without notice.

General Safety Tips: By taking a few simple security precautions before and during your vacation, you can help ensure that you, your traveling companions, and your valuables are as safe and secure as possible.
  • To make it easier to replace your passport if it’s lost or stolen, in addition to your passport, take a photocopy of your passport information page (keeping it separate from your actual passport).
  • Carry only a limited amount of cash, just enough for gratuities and incidental purchases. Major credit cards are widely accepted and can be replaced if lost or stolen.
  • Always lock your hotel room door (including patio and balcony door on any level of the building) and use the peephole before opening the door.
  • Store your valuables (such as cash, credit cards and airline tickets) in the hotel’s in-room safe or front desk safety deposit box.
  • If you must carry valuables on your person, do so in a pouch or money belt concealed under your clothing. Purses and backpacks can be easy targets for thieves.
  • For complete and current safety and security information, including travelers’ tips, public announcements, travel advisories and more, please visit the Web site of the U.S. Department of State at www.travel.state.gov.
