Party Time in Cancun at The Oasis

The Oasis beach

This party resort is the prime location for young adults to escape their busy lives and let loose for a week of sun, swimming and unlimited cervezas (and maybe a tequila shot or two). My travel buddy and I arrived in Cancun a day after our last exam, so we were ecstatic to lounge on the beach, tan in the […]
