4 Travel Deals to Oasis Resorts

Can I pay a bigger compliment to a hotel than gracing them with my own vacation?  While I am not sure that everyone would think so, I do believe, at the very least my family has always been quite satisfied.  Mexico, despite the constant bad news and horrible press it has gotten is one of the very best destinations for you vacation dollars, in my humble opinion.  I would never take my family to a place that I felt is extremely dangerous or even dangerous beyond other comparable destinations.  You can stay home, watch the cable news networks and literally become so scared and paranoid that you would never venture out of your front door.  The key to traveling safely is awareness and preparation and some of the other well placed commandments I mention in an older blog piece.  Shall I quote?

  1. Know where you are and stay where you belong:  roaming outside of those areas with infrastructure for tourism is risky in Mexico, just as it is in Chicago so don’t go looking for adventure or you might find more than you want.
  2. Don’t buy Drugs:  Yes, don’t buy drugs because usually the people selling them aren’t really the kind of people you want to hang out with and flash money and valuables around.  Many Americans are victims due to their attempts to purchase illegal drugs.
  3. Don’t let the party get out of control:  Getting drunk is bad.  Getting drunk in a foreign place is worse so if you have to party out of control do it in your hotel room not in a public place where others are scouting out potential victims.
  4. Don’t use ATM’s in public places:  Hello, hang a sign on your neck that you have money.
  5. Chill with a group of people:  People that are by themselves, especially at night are more likely to be prospective victims than people in large groups.  This is especially true for women.  Don’t go for long walks alone at night unless you are Chuck Norris.
  6. Spring Break:  Yes, a lot of the crime and deaths in the Cancun area arise from out of control young people who forget life is long, and the party a marathon, not a sprint, so be cool.
  7. Don’t go anywhere with people you don’t know:  Like your Mom told you, strangers can hurt you, better not to trust them then to make a regrettable mistake.
  8. Things are different here:  Everything from the money, to the roads is different than you are used to.  You can’t just expect everyone to abide by rules you are used to so adapt, be alert and be advised that you should expect the unexpected in the streets and on the road.

Sorry to be redundant, I just thought it was worth mentioning again.

 

With the uncleanliness out of the way, let’s talk about a group of hotels in Mexico that I believe offer you an opportunity to have a great trip at a great price, Oasis Resorts.  These hotels are well run and recently revamped, not just in the bed linens and paint department, but in the very spirit of the resorts themselves.  Grand Oasis Cancun has been transformed into a quasi-Vegas style resort, with a Mexican twist.  They have gone from sleepy, seaside mega hotel to the very pinnacle of entertainment for the entire area.  They are bringing in top name entertainers of all types and they have nightly shows that turn the giant pyramid shaped atrium into a choreographed, acrobatic hot spot.  Big names like “Snoop Lion” and DJ Paulie D are rocking this place right now!  So if you’re up for a party, this is the place to be.

Oh yeah, the beach is great, the service is in the upper range of Cancun resorts and the value for the money you spend to get there is phenomenal. 

So if you want to party Oasis style check out some deals that can get you there for less!ImageImageImageM
