Guest Adventure

Outings

At Casa Oasis we have our own van (photo above) for Airport pick-up/drop offs  and to offer Guest Outings to local attractions and points of interest.  We also work with several local english speaking tour companies/guides. 
You need to book your plans as soon as possible to reserve your space before arriving.  Early booking helps us to get you on a scheduled outing or tour with other guests, which lowers your cost per tour.  Personalized tours for 1 to 4 people are available however the cost for those tours will be higher.  We recommend scheduling your tour at least 4 weeks in advance, if possible. 
 While we can arrange outings/tours on shorter notice, we cannot guarantee space or that trip(s) will be available.

The town of Tonala located just a short drive from Casa Oasis is home to  a large street market, known in Spanish as a "tianguis" that is set up each Thursday and Sunday. This market is centered on the town's main street for about a kilometer, and spills into adjoining side streets.  This market can have from between 3,500 and 4,000 vendors selling locally made arts and crafts.   Another tour option is to tour the local arts and crafts factories in Tonala.   The town has been a ceramics center since the pre Hispanic period.  A number of other handcrafted items are made in Tonal√° as well, with blown glass coming second after ceramics. Other crafts include ironwork, woodworking, especially furniture, cartiberia (animals, clowns and dolls), tin and brass items.  Tonala is also great to explore on non-market (tianguis) days when you will find it much quieter and easier to explore the shops and artist galleries.

Just 4 km north of the town is Valle de los Enigmas, also known as las Piedrotas (Spanish "The Big Stones"), is a popular hiking destination in Tapalpa.
