The Oasis is the big spring break party hotel if you are looking for the really wild place. We went for a week and went through a local travel agent and spent about $1000 for air/hotels. We did the clubs everynight and most of the bigger hotels will have a shuttle from your hotel to take you to the bars with the hotel activities staff. Most of the time it would cost about $50 which includes immediate access to the club and all you can drink. You will have to take the public bus home which is only 60 cents or take a taxi but the public transportation is fine as it will all be spring breakers. If you are a drinker I would definetly stay at an all-inclusive(we did). My wife and I did an anniversary trip last summer to Cancun and stayed at Sun Palace but its a couples resort and alot pricier. There are several big companies that specialize in Student travel so look into them online.
Cancun is not as dangerous as some make it out to be, they depend on tourism and if you stay in the Hotel zone you will be fine. Its just like anywhere if you pay attention to your surroundings you will be fine but if you get crazy drunk and act a fool expect to get messed with.
You will have a blast and the week will go by faster than you want it too.
i was reading on trip advisor and everyone gave oasis such bad reviews...like terrible reviews. but i'm just wondering if trip advisor is just full of married couples that go on their honeymoon and stuff. if it's anything like the snowboarding trips i go on with a bunch of randoms then fuck it'll be epic. how were the beds? i always hear the sleeping arangements aren't that good there. beds are hard and stiff, uncomfortable to sleep in. right now the oasis is currently going for about $1200/person. i was looking at the riu resorts and that's going around $1500 person which i hear is kind of expensive but
never been anywhere. oasis does sound not bad though, even though it got terrible reviews
