Playa Delfines is a nice beach especially if you have children because it's a park too. However, the sand in the park has rocks so it's a little uncomfortable to walk barefoot. Also, even though the name of the beach is Playa Delfines, there are no dophins swimming around there but if you walk to the hotel beaches at night... More

We came here as a family for a day in July; three adults, a 15 year old, and a 7 year old. We did not have high expectations due to it being a public beach. The beach was really nice and clean. If you do not bring your own chairs or umbrellas you can pay to rent one. Further up... More

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
