San Jose Earthquakes prepared to work, not vacation, during preseason Cancun camp

SAN JOSE, Calif. — For the second straight preseason, the San Jose Earthquakes will jet to Cancun, Mexico for two weeks of fun in the sun on the sandy shores of the Caribbean.

Well, if you consider two-a-day workouts and intensive fitness regimens fun, that is.

The choice of such an exotic locale was a bit of a shock for players last January, especially with new head coach Matias Almeyda in charge, a man not known to take it easy in his preparations.

A beach-side resort seemed a better destination to soak in some sun than get serious about soccer.
