The place is superb, the job was (semi) on the beach. Sun, but not very warm. Santa Cruz is a surfer town .. and has that laid back vibe. 70 miles south of San Francisco we did a few day-trips there. As location, excellent.
The place is called Santa Cruz and I stayed with a unique memory because I had a view from our room direct to the ocean, everyone helps us when we were unclear in some respects, an experience that I would like to repeat each year in the same place if I could ❤️
How about Santa Cruz ... this is a nice town with exits at the ocean, bars, cafes, restaurants, shops, clubs and cinemas ... You can have fun and relax on the free days. You can easy find a second job. However, the biggest advantage, I think, is 1h from San Francisco.
With all the warmth I recommend! It was perfect to me! Succes and have fun!
The climate is very stable , but it is not as warm as I expected . Since it is located beside the city on the coast of the Pacific Ocean , he can blow a cool breeze . The temperature is around 26-29 degrees C. Rains almost was not for 4 months. i recommend that you bring clothes , jacket ! Mornings and nights are not . really fresh.
Nature is phenomenal. In the surroundings you can see pelicans , a variety of different beautiful little birds , squirrels , sea lions , otters , dolphins , and who is lucky to be standing and the whale . Beautiful ' redwood ' forests , beautiful rocky coastline. Santa Cruz is a great place for nature lovers. The town is small, does not have a nightlife. Everything closes around 12 at night, only has pubs , cafes . The city is decorated, clean, cute. The only criticism is that there is a loooot of homeless (not dangerous ) , people who beg. In the vicinity there are a couple of shopping centers with a solid choice. There is also a local bus that is clean and accurate . The food is a little more expensive, and not all GMO has Organic .
There were opportunities in restaurants , depending on when they are looking for ... small town , but very pleasant , on the coast ... Near San Francisco , and San Jose 's. Air - warmer during the day , but mornings and evenings cool ..
Accommodation: Price $ 130 per 2 weeks ... apartment was great for us 4 girls dark ... and well equipped ( furniture, kitchen utensils) . Do not expect anything special ( because it is not ) , but it is solid .
