When you think about Cancun, forget about spring break. There’s more to Cancun than what’s long been plastered on MTV for years.
Don’t get me wrong: there are plenty of places to party, even for gay crowds. Downtown Cancun is host to multiple gay clubs.
If you’re looking for something a little more laid-back, though, you may want to consider the Oasis Sens. As part of the Oasis Hotels group, which consists of 10 hotels and resorts in Cancun, the Oasis Sens is the chain’s adults-only hotel, and it’s LGBT friendly. Seriously, as of January 2013, the term “LGBT friendly” became part of Oasis Sens’ official description.
Oasis Sens offers all-inclusive packages for visitors, including access to two beach-facing pools, several bars and restaurants (drinks and meals are included in the packages), evening shows, and a host of other activities.
Do you want to explore Cancun? Better yet, do you want to take a day trip exploring Mexico beyond Cancun? The Oasis group hosts a fleet of SMART cars that are available to all guests for an insurance fee. It’s a great way to explore if you want to cover a lot of ground in a small amount of time.
Springing for VIP status doesn’t hurt, either. The VIP experience gives guests deluxe suites, which include a private deck and a mini pool. There’s also access to exclusive bars and restaurants. Swimmers also gain access to a quiet, large pool facing the mainland. Finally, VIP guests have access to the Oasis private beaches on the Sian Ka’an biosphere reserve.
Also worth noting: Cancun is part of the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, where same-sex marriage became legal in 2012. It’s one of two states in Mexico where gay and lesbian couples can legally marry. If you’re looking for a foreign destination for a wedding, you may want to keep Oasis Sens in mind.
More options for LGBT individuals will be available in the future. Current plans include various entertainment options, including a new LGBT nightclub, parties, and excursions. Special packages for LGBT couples are also planned as offerings in the near future.
So if you’re looking for a warm beach and cool waters outside of the country this summer, keep in mind the Oasis Sens. Act quickly, though—current packages are available at a remarkable 40% off standard rates.
