One of the many public beaches, with ultra clean showers and rest rooms, 24 hour police presence, a grat look out platform, excellent for shutter bugs, overlooking the Caribbean Sea towards Cuba.

Good for a cheap excursion! Take any #1 or #2 bus from your hotel ($9.50 pesos or $1 US). It is pretty far down the seven (south). Tell the bus driver "Las Ruinas del Rey". Before you cross the road for the beach, pay $4 US to see some nice ruins and Iguanas (snag a couple extra slices of bread... More

Lovely to have this right outside the hotel, but sea a bit rough at times!! Well maintained and spotlessly clean, miles of soft sand and hardly anyone on it.

Loved the dolphins and all we got to do with them. Loved it all! Nothing I disliked other than sharing my dolphin time with others (this is not a complaint - I just love dolphins and would love more time with them). The people shared lots of interesting facts about the dolphins and were very good to work with.

Group of 6 for 60 minutes in water. Some good dolphin contact. Very well trained dolphins love to please guests. Lots of photos but were expensive.

I took the bus from town and this was the beach everyone said to go to. It is picture perfect. There are washrooms and showers for the public and lots of beach umbrellas. I went on a Saturday and it was great because it was not over run with tourists, instead many families out enjoying the day. I was by... More

We stayed at a hotel along the length of this beach. My standards for beaches will never be the same again. Seeing it for the first time will definitely leave you gasping- the blues are simply incredible. Relatively uncrowded by tourists, which is a huge perk. If you went clubbing, this is the perfect spot to catch the sunrise around... More

I was with a friend and we would go running on the beach to Playa Delfines nearly everyday. The beach is beautiful and quite clean. There is a bathroom for public use and the possibility to rent surf boards. I had looked up the beach on the internet because it was said to be the only surf-able beach in Cancun.... More

We loved the large beach and beautiful waters. There appers to be amenities here but some of if is currently in construction. There are small canopy things to sit out of the sun, but my guess is you have to arrive early to get one. There are restrooms by the road and an area to rinse off sand. There was... More
