There is no such thing as a quick weekend trip from the west coast. Getting there is a bitch. A 4 hour drive to San Francisco and then a 5 1/2 hour (nonstop) flight to Cancun. From our door to TTR is, at best, a 13-14 hour journey. Dallas to Cancun is about 1,000 air miles, SF to Cancun is about 2,500 air miles and we are 225 miles from SFO. Redding has 2 puddle jumper flights to SFO a day and they don't come close to matching up with the 2 nonstop flights to Cancun a day.
