Getting to isla is easily accomplished by flying into cancun which has direct flights from many different destinations. Once in cancun, you can either take a taxi or we can help arrange transportation from the airport to the gran puerto ferry dock.

The concierge can assist you in setting up any number of activities including, explore the islands many sites by rented golf cart or scooter, recommending one of the many beach clubs, zip lining, snorkeling, swimming with the dolphins, scuba diving, fishing, shopping, massage, day trips to explore ruins, and whale shark excursions during the summer.

After a day of playing in the sun, it is only a short half block walk down the to the best nightspots on isla mujeres. The pedestrian only quaint cobblestone hildago avenue is lined with great shopping and virtually unlimited dining options with more than 50 restaurants to suite all tastes. Options include everything from authentic mexican cuisine to fine dining. After a great meal enjoy the multiple live music options and dance the night away.

About Randy Fossum

As a native Minnesotan, I have taken many winter vacations and would select a new destination every year until I first visited Isla Mujeres. After my first visit, I knew I would return and eventually bought the condo in 2012 with a friend who was also convinced to purchase with me after being on the island only two days. We are relatively new owners but will work very hard to ensure your experience at Ixchel will be one you will never forget.

Randy Fossum purchased this condo in 2012

Why Randy Fossum chose Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres was ranked in as the 6th best island in the world and Ixchel is located on Norte Beach which was ranked as the 14th best beach in the world as ranked in 2013.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is on the highest floor and closest to the ocean of any of the Ocean View units at Ixchel Phase 1. The view from the balcony and master bedroom cannot be beat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our second trip to Isla was better than the first trip last year.



A new discover was Maria’s Kankin toward the south point of the island. The sunset there was spectacular and worth the cab ride.



We hope to be back next year.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent 10 wonderful nights in rooms 407-408 of Building I. This is a two bedroom apartment (1 king bedroom, double queen bedroom, living room+kitchen) with balcony overlooking the ocean and pools. It is extremely clean and comfortable, and was perfect for our family. The rate includes daily housekeeping. You can rent it from the hotel itself or from the owner Randy Possum (612-964-3104 or www.ixchelvacation.com). Randy is a pleasure to deal with.

The hotel is situated on the most beautiful beach on the island, and is a five minute walk from very good restaurants and cafes. As soon as you check in meet with the Concierge Mauricio (request him) to receive an island overview. He has excellent taste. The daily rate entitles you to beach lounge chairs and umbrellas. Virginio will set up your umbrellas and chairs with amazing care. He has an terribly grueling job, but I have never seen anybody showing more pride in his work. The pool was pretty, but we much preferred the beach.

The hotel has a spa, but I recommend the massage services hidden behind the palapa snack bar off to the left (when you walk our of the hotel). With a very generous tip, an hour massage costed 700 pesos = $37.

My only issue with the hotel was the (free) wifi speed. At times it was unusably slow. This is a hotel problem and not a problem with these specific rooms.

Just returned from 10 day stay in Isla and staying at Randy's condo at Ixchel Beach Hotel. It was perfect for our family. Brother and Sister In-Law in Master and self, wife and 2 girls stayed in the other room. It's a perfect location, the amenities are perfect and the condo has everything you need including the cooler! LOL!! We cooked in several meals including an awesome dinner where I went to fishing coop and got a large snapper had it filleted and cooked it on Randy's grill. It's perfect for families, couples old and young!!! The group vote come next year for two weeks!!!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family (wife and 3 young boys) just returned from 5 days in Isla. We rented these apartments from Randy and could not have been more pleased! The location on the beach is perfect and the resort did not disappoint in terms of cleanliness, quality of poolside food and drink, friendliness and responsiveness of staff, etc. Randy's apartments were also ideal for our family of 5 with the boys sharing a room and my wife and I in a second bedroom (separated by a living room and kitchen), and we also each had our own separate bathrooms. So the kids could watch tv in their bedroom (there also is a good selection of DVDs), while my wife and I could lounge and enjoy the sound of the surf from our bedroom or out on the large balcony. We also really enjoyed exploring the town, which is just a short walk from Ixchel and is filled with stores and good restaurants. While still somewhat touristy, Isla is a good place to give kids a feel for authentic Mexican life instead of the sterile environment found at many Mexican all-inclusive resorts (which we also did for several days on this trip and is fun in its own way). Finally, Randy is very responsive and bends over backward to help out. I recommend taking his advice when it comes to restaurant suggestions, transport to/from airport, etc.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from an 8 day stay on Isla. This was our third stay on Isla, and our second at the Ixchel. Randy's condo is very nicely decorated and suited our family of five very well. We had another group renting a unit at Ixchel and they preferred the comfort of our room. Randy has a cooler that can be packed and taken to the beach, which saves on your bar tab! We rented a golf cart for the week and enjoyed daily trips around the island sight seeing and enjoying different restaurants. Basto's was our favorite for authentic Mexican food. We cannot wait until we can go back!

Perfect stay on Isla!

  • 5 of 5

My second time to Isla, first time renting from Randy and staying at Ixchel. This is my new favorite place! Condo is all as described and more. Super comfy beds, wifi worked great (even on beach), condo super comfortable for the four of us. There is a full range of dish ware if you want to cook, however the best surprise was a cooler and coozies for our drinks as well as water jugs to fill our water bottles. Randy checked in frequently to make sure everything was going well, which was appreciated. We contacted his recommended transport from Cancun airport, and he was busy, but hooked us up with another (at your service Cancun) that was excellent. Staff at Ixchel was super nice, friendly and always accommodating from front desk, to security to beach staff. Elon was our favorite beach waiter, very fun and great service from him and all of them. Don't hesitate to ask the staff for local recommendations as they all have good recco's for paddle boarding, fishing, restaurants, etc. on site spa offers greats specials that shouldn't be passed up. We golf carted around island one day but missed Playa Norte and came back for sunset. Be sure to stop by Tarzans, right down the beach from Ixchel. Can't wait to plan my next trip, will definitely stay here and rent this condo!

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

These 4 Seattlites arrived at Ixchel after a short walk from the ferry terminal, with rolling carry-on's in tow. Our sweat looked more like milk, thanks to the zinc sunscreen we used in abundance. The staff at Ixchel took one look at us and said "Welcome home!" with outstretched arms. Someone handed us chilled lavender-infused washcloths, another brought out a huge vessel of citrus-infused icewater and we really did feel home. When a piece of luggage didn't make it, they helped me contact the airline daily until it arrived. When my daughter left the underwater camera on the beach at sunset, they found it and put it in the safe until I could claim it. When our golf cart didn't show up, they gave me directions to the golf cart office. The unit 407/408 was equally welcoming. The best part was the A/C, the second best part was the furnishings, the third best was the impressive housekeeping service. The owner checked in periodically before, during, and after our stay to ensure our satisfaction. The unit is well-appointed, with impressive views from all angles. Just steps from our building was a fantastic restaurant called Abuelos with the best onion rings ever, and an inspirational lime soup. I would highl recommend Isla, Ixchel, and unit 407/408.
