Any suggestion of hotels close to seaworld?
The hotels closest to Sea World will be more of the resort type, so if that is alright for you then I would suggest the Catamaran hotel, the Dana, or the Hyatt Regency Mission Bay.

For something simpler and decent, there is a newer Holiday Inn Express in Mission Valley, it's only 10 minutes from Sea World, and they provide a free breakfast buffet too. m.ihg/hotels/holidayinne...eldetail/sanbp

All of these places charge for parking, so if you will have a car, be sure to check for that cost as well.

A house rental would probably be the best situation for a group that size. I'd suggest looking for homes on websites like VRBO (vacation rentals by owner), Homeaway or Airbnb. Some central areas of town to look for a rental in would be Mission Bay, Mission Beach, Mission Valley, Pacific Beach, Old Town and Point Loma. If you are ok with being just a little outside of the central area of San Diego, but still within a reasonable distance to the sights, then I'd suggest La Jolla, or the Bird Rock area.

Hello! Thanks for all the information - it's amazing! We're looking at a visit in October 2019 (I know it's a while away, but planning takes time and I might have a few holidays booked next year already...). I just have the one question for now (and there will be more!).

How easy is it to visit Mexico? My eldest had a Mexican teacher last year and would love to go!

Over to you Aims. Are things still as dicey crossing over to Mexico or have things improved? Not something I'd consider to be honest...

Still dicey! Nothing much has changed. Sallybunny, I wouldn't recommend a trip over the border these days. Crime in the border towns has really risen over recent years, due to the drug cartels that have moved in. Tijuana, like many other border towns, is also very economically depressed. A large number of the residents live in poverty, and if you look like a foreigner, you will get a lot of people begging from you- including children. If you were flying into one of the resort towns like Mazatlan or Cabo San Lucas, it's a little nicer but even those areas have seen a rise in crime against tourists the past couple years. If it's just a day trip over the border you want, I would really discourage it. A lot of San Diegans don't go as much anymore.

If you want a taste of Mexico, check out Old Town State Park in San Diego. You can get Mexican style souvenirs in the shops and there are a few good Mexican restaurants there too.
