Arrived at the beach for the day, looked fantastic. Got pictures by the Cancun sign and walked down to the beach looking for some sun beds, there weren't any, just some uncomfortable wooden benches. Looked like no where to get a drink from so we left. Shame as was looking forward to going here for the day but went back... More

Came here while visiting cancun for a week. We stayed with a friend so we were going to the non-resort beaches and this one was a gem! Such a clean beach with a lot of space to get comfy. There are little umbrella spots, stone benches, children's play area, and an outdoor gym. All with the beautiful sea view! Our... More

There are plenty of beaches in Cancun, all named from animals Playa Delfines, Playa Tortugas, Playa Marlin, and Playa Langosta. The beach that was closest to the hotel we were staying in was Playa Delfines so we went there and it was incredibly beautiful. The water was sort of calm in the shallow part, I just wouldn't recommend walking past... More

the beach is very nice, they have some palapas along where you can hide from the sun, get there early if you wanna get one though. But maybe is not very good if you're planning on going for a swim, this beach has a very dangerous area where a hole sucks you into the ocean and also due this you... More

On Km. 16 marker of Kukulcan Boulevard rises the tallest dune in Cancun. From the lookout deck at 7 pm, just as the sun is setting over the Laguna Nichupte to the west, the moon is rising clear and round over the eastern horizon. This is the first land in México to meet the rising moon and the perfect place... More

Playa Delfines is located within the Hotel Zone on Avenida Kukulcan, directly across the street from El Rey ruins. The beach is very large and gorgeous, like the rest of Cancun! The advantage here is that the beach is larger than the beaches in front of the hotels. We also spotted a few iguanas running around ;) there is also... More
