As the state’s second largest city, San Antonio embodies Texas’ rich cultural heritage while maintaining the Old West charm of an oil town.
For shopping fun, head to The San Antonio River Walk or Fredericksburg Fudge. Get a sense of the local culture at The Alamo and National Museum of the Pacific War. Venture out of the city with trips to Fredericksburg (Grape Creek Vineyards Fredericksburg & Grape Creek Vineyards on Main). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Mission San Jose, Head underground at Natural Bridge Caverns, take in the history at Mission Concepcion, and take a stroll through Southtown.

Plan my San Antonio trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Playa del Carmen, Mexico to San Antonio is an approximately 7-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also do a combination of ferry and flight; or drive. The time zone difference when traveling from Playa del Carmen to San Antonio is minus 1 hour. Plan for slightly colder nights when traveling from Playa del Carmen in October since evenings lows in San Antonio dip to 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Wed) so you can drive to Austin.
