Calexico is about 122 miles (196 km) east of San Diego and 62 miles (100 km) west of Yuma, Arizona. The name of the city is a portmanteau of California and Mexico, which, like that of its adjacent sister city of Mexicali, emphasizes its identity as a border city.
Calexico.ca.gov: Calexico’s climate is sunny year-round, and offers little to inhibit outdoor recreation. Golfing, water sports, hunting, fishing and hiking are all available in the immediate area, and the beautiful beaches of San Diego and Baja California are easily accessible for day trips or fun-filled vacations. Just across the border, Mexicali is a cultural and entertainment center offering ample opportunity for fine dining, theatre, music and more.
