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.
City life is hard to beat, but every so often its fast pace takes its toll and the hustle and bustle can wear out even the most ardent city slicker.

Well say no more my friend, here we give you 10 quick signs that its maybe time to get out of your work clothes and into some swimwear for a well-earned break in Cancun.
Mexico is a country extremely rich in culture, beliefs, and history, so it is not surprising that it is also rich in mythology, which is reflected in the iconography, customs, and legends past and present. In Mexico you can find magical places and folktales wherever you go, and the beautiful destination of Cancun is no different.

Beautiful hotels and turquoise blue waters aren’t the only characteristics that distinguish Cancun from other popular destinations. With so many hotels, competition in Cancun is fierce. Every day the different hotels offer new services to attract potential guests. However there is only one hotel group in the Mexican Caribbean that offers the possibility of staying at one hotel and being able to enjoy five others at no extra cost.
