  • This issue of our newsletter gives you a little introduction to our new buyers and where they come from; as well as the OASIS Walk Score, as many people want to be able to walk from their apartment/house to stores, supermarkets, food places or activities. The Walk Score will help you to know all the nearby places of interest. We hope you find this information useful.

    Very best regards from the OASIS team.




    Introducing OASIS owners:



    So often, OASIS visitors, maybe even you, have asked us, "Where are our buyers from?"

    WALK SCORE

    By Steve Kerr



    OASIS has an international Walk Score of 92 out of 100. OASIS is a Walker’s Paradise. This means that many amenities are around the corner and daily errands do not require a car.

    What is a Walk Score?

    A Walk Score measures the walkability of any address. The Walk Score analyzes hundreds of walking routes to nearby amenities. Points are awarded based on the distance to amenities in each category. Amenities within a 5-minute walk (.25 miles) are given maximum points. No points are given after a 30-minute walk.

    All places listed below are within a 20-minute walk from Oasis. It is only a small sample since there are so many places to choose from and these choices are increasing all the time.

    Mercado Emiliano Zapata (6 mins)

    Open aired Mexican market where you can buy almost anything. Fruits & Vegetables, spices, smoothies, meats and seafood. This is an early market and runs from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., so it is best to get there early to get the freshest produce. Open 365 days per year.

    The Emiliano Zapata market is a good place to explore and practice your Spanish!

    Where’s breakfast?



    There are several places to grab breakfast and here are my top 3 and all are within an 8-minute walk from Oasis.



    Mi Café

    A great European style eatery with amazing interior and great food.

    Soco’s

    This is a great Mexican family-oriented spot with good portions and great prices, situated on a quiet corner in old town.

    Café 449

    Across from Soco’s and newer on the scene with great fresh food at great prices.

    Where’s The Beach?



    Olas Altas beach is an 18-minute walk. The best path to take is the road that follows the river and gets you onto the island. Just look for the swinging bridge. Follow this path on the Rio Cuale Island until you reach the Malecon and turn left. Here you will find Olas Altas beach.



    Once you get to Olas Altas beach the world is your oyster. The second beach to the south is the famous Playa Los Muertos, located on the south side of the pier.





    Beach bars, restaurants, beach clubs and water taxis from the pier can take you to the more remote beaches to the south. Choose a different experience each time you go until you settle into your grove.



    Where is my Taco?



    Tacos are a Mexican staple, and if you haven’t done a taco tour this might be great idea to get to know which taco stand will become the one you will eventually call your favorite. Here are 3 all within a short walk of Oasis with Tacos Sonorita being the longest walk at 15 minutes.



    Marisma Fish Tacos (8 mins)

    Marisma emerged in 1990 with a small seafood taco stand between two leafy ficus trees; where you can taste different types of seafood tacos, either grilled or deep fried, but all are prepared and served in warm handmade tortillas.

    Tacos Sonoritas (15 mins)

    Tacos Sonoritas arises from the love for the taco culture, full of flavor, color, aromas and experiences. This is a rustic place specializing in tacos al pastor, steak tacos or rib tacos.

    Mariscos Cisneros (9 mins)

    If you love authentic Mexican seafood options, stop here! Mariscos Cisneros is easy to find and offers a delicious array of ceviche, seafood appetizers, tacos and Mexican specialties. Try the hidden garden patio at the back of the restaurant.

    Restaurants
