The people were very nice and the dolphins we awesome. The only bad thing is that you can't take pictures. You can buy pictures hut they are expensive.

Playa Delfines in Cancun is one of the best, most beautiful beaches I have ever been on. There are lots of palapas,a lot of sandy beach and the water is warm and crystal clear. It can tend to be rough on days, but there are lifeguards and flags up with warnings. I usually just wade in up to the thighs... More

I went to several beaches in Cancun, even Playa del Carmen. For me, this one was the best of all. I like waves, but not that big, and the water is crystalline as in other places. There are free umbrellas in the beach and you'll have bathrooms and showers as well, all free. Very nice mister at the parking lot.

If u like waves this is a great beach to come to. It was our favorite to swim at or just look at the beautiful water or just walk the beach for hours. It is all the way at the end of the hotel zone and the R1 or R2 bus takes you there for less than $1!

I went to this fantastic place last winter. I was trying to look for a warm and cool place to stay, away from the cold weather. It is an amazing bech, the sand almost looks like white powder and feels so soft. Your eyes never get tired of sstaring at the sea, the different tone of light blue colors it... More

tourquise water,big waves,no option to buy food,fine sand, great spot for taking photos,instead of paying horrible amount of money for taxi you should take a bus R1 from centre or Zona hotelera for 10pesos

Our airport shuttle driver pointed out this beach to us. He said we could take the public bus right to it from our hotel, so that's what we did. Upon arriving a young man tried selling us a spot with beach chairs under an umbrella ($15 for 2 hours) but we declined since there were several other shaded areas right... More

I happened upon this spectacular beach while strolling down the road from the wonderful Ruinas Del Rey. I'd read about it but didn't intend to visit. Suddenly, there it was. Wow! If you're at a Cancun hotel with an excellent beach, maybe you can take a pass on Playa Delfines. Otherwise, it's worth it and an easy bus ride there... More
