Come enjoy the beautiful Caribbean Sea along the Riviera Maya in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. Villa Ixchel is just steps from the beach. Ixchel -- pronounced “ee-SHELL” -- is the Mayan goddess of health and happiness. The water is warm, the waves are gentle, and the breeze keeps you refreshed in this tropical paradise.
The ocean has colors of blue, purple, and green you won’t see anywhere else in the world, and the fine white sand is never hot on your feet. The ocean deepens gradually and the currents are light, so the beach is great for children, but there is plenty of adventure just a short way out -- such as snorkeling and scuba diving to see the fascinating underwater creatures in the coral reefs, kayaking, and parasailing.
Villa Ixchel is located 1 hour south of the international airport in Cancun by car or taxi. It is a brand new condo offering the best beach front access in the Villa Del Mar II villas complex, located in the gated community of Puerto Aventuras, in the State of Quintana Roo. The surrounding coastal area is called the Riviera Maya.
Puerto Aventuras is a unique jewel in the Riviera Maya. It is a thriving international community, with a harbor, a marina, and beaches, and yet it provides privacy and exclusivity. Throughout the community you will find people of all ages, walking, running, riding bikes, skateboarding, riding golf carts, or in their cars. The biggest V.I.P.s of the Mayan Riviera, who can afford to live anywhere, choose to live in Puerto Aventuras with their families, because of its natural beauty, amenities, tranquility, and safety.

Villa Ixchel is one of the gems of the community, because of its comfort, its luxury, and its spectacular proximity to the beach. At 2000+ square feet with marble throughout, it offers 2 master bedroom ocean-view suites with king beds (furnished with high-end pillow-top mattresses), and a third bedroom suite with 2 queen beds. Each bedroom affords the privacy of a luxury hotel room, with its own private bath, television, and independent controls for very quiet air conditioning. Each bedroom can be locked and has a safe for valuables. In addition, there is a half bath near the main entrance equipped with a washer/dryer.
Villa Ixchel is perfect for a family reunion or a business gathering, and is fully equipped for entertaining. The full-service kitchen has all the amenities you'll want. The beautiful living/dining room has a panoramic view of the ocean. You are immersed in the beauty just sitting in your living or dining room. Enjoy sitting out on your terrace, and relaxing in your personal jacuzzi. From your terrace, you are only about 25 steps to the sand or to the pool.
For the times when you are not gazing at the water, palms, and sand, or listening to the waves, there is a widescreen television and DVD player. A selection of popular DVDs is provided, or you can bring your own favorites, or rent them in the village. Bring your laptops and stay in touch with High-Speed Wireless Internet, free long distance phone service to the USA and Canada, and a cell phone for local services and convenience when out and about.
You can walk along the beach to the kid-friendly marina village, where you will find shops, services, and many fine, but reasonably priced restaurants. The restaurant at the five-star Omni Hotel is a two-minute walk along the beach. Swim with the dolphins in the marina (or watch the action while sipping a margarita at one of the outdoor cafes). Check out the dive and snorkel shops -- arrange a lesson if you wish. You will also enjoy the art and gift shops. You can play at the Puerto Aventuras golf course, and the kids will love the skate board park.
Major attractions of the Riviera Maya are 15 minutes away by car or taxi, including Xel-Ha (pronounced shell-Hah), where the underground rivers flow into the sea, the splendors of the cenote caves of Aktun Chen, and Xcaret. Xcaret (pronounced sh-karet) is a huge eco-park that is as much fun as Disneyland or any major theme park – but it is also far more interesting and educational. It truly lives up to its reputation of being the premier attraction in the entire coastal area in the state of Quintana Roo. It is a delight for all ages! Right next to Xcaret is a new adventure park, Xplor, with ziplines, underground rafts, stalactite rivers, and amphibious circuits. (We can't wait to take our 14 year-old nephew this spring.)
Visit Mayan pyramids and archealogical sites of major significance. Tulum is only 30 minutes away, and tours are available for nearby Chichen-Itza, Coba, and other sites in the Yucatan. Did you know that there are five UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula – waiting for you to explore?
Want more excitement? The city of Playa Del Carmen, about 20 minutes by car or taxi, has shops, art galleries, and night life, and it is where the ferries depart for the island of Cozumel. Playa Del Carmen also offers major shopping such as Sam's Club, Wal-Mart, Office Depot, and a new large mall on the road to Puerto Aventuras.
You can go to Cancun for a day trip or an evening, and enjoy the fabulous shopping malls and restaurants, or the world-famous night life.
When you are at home in Villa Ixchel, you can take advantage of concierge services, arranged upon request, which include delivery directly to your fridge and cupboards of beer, fine wine, and groceries; shopping and meal preparation; child care; taxi; rental car; tours; and recreation – at surprisingly reasonable prices.
If you have been waiting to find the perfect family beach vacation, with more luxury and services, at a far better value than the fancy hotels and all-inclusives, Villa Ixchel is ready for you.
