5 foods to try in Cancun


Quintana Roo the state that Cancun is located in and Cancun itself are less than 50 years old. Before 1974 the area of Quintana Roo was part of Yucatan state and so Cancun’s cuisine is heavily influenced by its neighbours. The roots and language of Yucatecan cooking date back to the Mayans who inhabited this part of the world many centuries ago. Below are five delicious foods that are typical of our region and can be found in our hotels and their surrounding areas.

Sopa de lima

A staple of any self-respecting Yucatecan restaurant, sopa de lima (translated as lime soup though it uses a local citrus fruit similar to a lime that has a less acidic flavour) is the ideal first dish to try if you are new to the region’s cuisine, perfect as a starter before you delve into the other foods on this list. Apart from lime, the other key ingredients of this soup are tomato, onion and shredded chicken. Fried strips of corn tortilla are added to the soup giving it a crunchy twist. When done well you won’t want the bowl to end!

Tikin xic

Tikin xic is a fish dish prepared with achiote paste, a blend of cumin, pepper, cloves and the orangey-red seeds of the annatto tree. Typically a local fish is used like red snapper or grouper, the fish is then marinated in the achiote paste and traditionally wrapped in banana leaves and cooked in an underground oven known as a pibil. Once cooked the fish is normally garnished with fried onion and served with rice.

Cochinita pibil

Cochinita pibil is a slow cooked pork dish that like tikin xic uses achiote and is traditionally cooked in banana leaves underground. The pork is marinated in the achiote paste and bitter orange juice for several hours which helps soften the meat. Once cooked, the tender meat is pulled and typically eaten as a taco or sandwich filling topped with pickled red onion. A variety of this dish is pollo pibil, where chicken is used instead of pork.


 A tamal is a snack made of corn dough with a savoury or sweet filling. The tamal is wrapped in either corn husks or banana leaves and then steamed in a large pot. Popular fillings include chicken, pork and chaya, a green vegetable similar to spinach native to the Yucatan Peninsula. Many enjoy their tamal covered in red or green spicy sauce or mole poblano, a sauce that includes chocolate amongst its many ingredients. The food is a popular choice at large celebrations such as Independence Day, the Day of the Dead and Christmas.


A marquesita is a savoury dessert that consists of a rolled, hardened waffle filled with grated edam cheese (known locally as queso de bola). The story behind this dessert begins in Merida, the capital of Yucatan state, where an ice cream seller low on winter sales devised this alternative filling to great success. The name is said to derive from two regular clients that were daughters of a marquis. Popular additional ingredients include Nutella, cajeta (caramel made of goats milk) and lechera (sweet condensed milk) creating a sweet and savoury combination. Several marquesita vendors can be found in Parque las Palapas in Cancun city centre as well as in squares, parks and street corners throughout the Yucatan peninsula.

We hope you try at least one of these five delightful foods during your stay with us; we are sure you won’t regret it!

Coffee & Me, a coffee lover’s dream

For many people their day only truly begins after a morning coffee; waking up to that rich, enveloping aroma puts one in a good mood, ready to start the day the right way.   

That pleasure doesn’t have to stop when on vacation, quite the opposite, in all Oasis hotels and resorts you’ll find Coffee & Me, our coffee shop where each drink is made with a lot of love and its Caribbean Sea blue decoration relaxes you immediately. 

There’s a wide range of coffees to choose from such as Tiramisu, Irish Cappuccino and Caramel Coco; a combination of caramel and coconut syrups with milky coffee. All can be taken hot or cold as many prefer to do as antidote to the Caribbean heat. Apart from delicious coffees, you’ll also find a variety of teas, soft drinks, pastries and sandwiches, ideal to grab if you’re setting off on an early morning tour.

The selection of freshly baked pastries include cinnamon rolls, chocolate muffins and my personal favourite black and white chocolate doughnuts, a perfect accompaniment to your coffee of choice. There are also ciabattas with fillings like chicken and pesto, or bacon, lettuce and tomato as well as serrano ham and provolone cheese baguettes, all made by our chefs daily and like the drinks, can be had hot or cold.

Whether you decide to have your order sitting in one of its comfy chairs, on the beach or by the pool, we’re sure you’ll enjoy the experience immensely. So next time you stay with us, make sure to pay a visit to Coffee & Me!

Take a Mayan spa treatment

Our hotel’s offer a range of spa treatments which are regularly praised by our guests. One such treatment is the pre-Hispanic steam house called temazcal, which derives from the Nahuatl words ‘temaz’ meaning steam and ‘calli’ meaning house. This group treatment incorporates ancient rituals with song and music and is filled with symbology. Its shape represents the womb of mother earth and the ceremony works with the four elements; earth, water, air and fire to purify and harmonize mind, body and spirit. The treatment helps eliminate toxins from the body, purifies the blood, cleanses the airways and relieves tension and stress, promoting mental clarity.


Snorkel at the world’s second largest coral reef

A matter of yards from the shore of the Grand Oasis Tulum you will find portions of the Mesoamerican reef, the world’s second largest coral reef that runs nearly 700 miles from the northern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula all the way down to Honduras. The hotel offers its guest free snorkelling tours as well as scuba diving excursions. You’ll be amazed at the amount of colourful fish you find and if you’re lucky you may even see a turtle or two.
