Tacos, as Mexican as the maize they are made of
In the beginning
According to Aztec mythology, today’s man was created when the Mesoamerican god Quetzalcoatl took the broken remains of men from times past from Mictlan (the underworld) and brought them to Tamoanchan, home of the gods of creation.

A delight for all the family
Serendipity; coming across something pleasant simply by chance. The word is often used in the art world or in the field of science, but it is the first word that came to mind when describing one of my favourite spots of Oasis, the restaurant Xtabentun at Oasis Palm.
With an urban population of approximately 800,000 and over 32,000 hotel rooms, Cancun today is a rapidly growing cosmopolitan city with an increasingly demanding society whose needs are constantly evolving. Oasis has grown up with Cancun for almost 30 years. Understanding the unpredictable and sometimes erratic behaviour of this beautiful city is part of our daily routine and part of what motivates us.
The island where the sun rises
The island of Isla Mujeres is the most easterly Mexican territory and because of this its inhabitants often say: Mexico despierta aquí (Mexico wakes up here). This quaint little strip of land off of the Mexican Caribbean has been blessed with natural beauty. Its crystal clear waters, narrow streets, diverse fauna and people, makes it an attractive place to visit, and at only a short boat ride away from Cancun, a perfect place for a fantastic day out. So fantastic in fact, that the sun greets it before the rest of the country.
This year Cancun celebrates its 45th birthday. Construction of this beautiful city officially began on 20 April 1970, so on this date for the last 45 years we have celebrated the birthday of the city that has grown up with us and has taken us into its heart.
