If you want to enjoy a relaxing vacation on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, then you want your vacation to take place in Cancun, Mexico.
This lovely city, which was only truly developed about 35 years ago on the northeast coast of the Yucatan, is rich in nightlife, shopping and Mayan culture. Cancun is also a popular destination for spring breakers.
No matter what brings you to Cancun, you’ll need a place to stay. The Pyramid at Grand Oasis is an all-inclusive resort in a pyramid-shaped building with an open-air atrium, located on the longest beach in Cancun. The recently remodeled property, inspired by Mayan culture, includes 210 rooms and suites. Your room has privacy and a balcony so that you can open the door and enjoy that majestic view. The Pyramid at Grand Oasis offers travelers all-inclusive and luxury accommodations, including exclusive gourmet restaurants, a private beach club, and more..
There is a spa to indulge in relaxing beauty treatments and a variety of activities should you rather stay active on vacation, including a gym, watersports, golf course, entertainment and a night club. You can also enjoy yoga and Pilates, pool games, water activities, DJ parties and dance lessons if you want to get your groove on after a day of lying on the beach.
Speaking of beaches, Cancun is also home to 14 miles of pristine white beaches that are actually shaped like a number "7". Make sure you step in the beautiful warm Cancun beach water. Kayaking, aquatic bikes and snorkeling are available on-site for Pyramid guests.
The easiest way to get around is by renting an Oasis Smart car right at the resort for preferential rates. When you do get out, make sure to step out of your hotel room and visit Museo Maya de Cancun, and Laguna Nichupte, a vast lagoon home to hundreds of marinas, waterfront restaurants, shopping malls, a couple of golf courses and a few islands and inlets.
Your all-inclusive vacation includes all of your daily meals, unlimited beverages and an in-house entertainment program that includes singers, acrobats, comedians and more. There’s definitely something for everyone.
When it’s time to enjoy a meal in between all your fun in the sun, choose from one of the 29 upscale restaurants to dine in, including Mexican, Arabic, Japanese, Peruvian, Italian, and so much more. The restaurants range from gastro bars like The White Box to fine dining at specialty restaurants such as Careyes.
You can make your dinner even more special and watch the Red Circus – think Cirque du Soleil with similar acrobatic performances that tell of Mexico’s history.
Heads up honeymooners because The Pyramid at Grand Oasis Cancun offers four honeymoon packages, which includes a welcome cocktail and the best available accommodations to celebrate your special day.
The Grand Oasis Runaway Program allows you to stay at The Pyramid at Grand Oasis hotel and enjoy the restaurants, bars, and facilities at all other Oasis Hotels & Resorts properties.
