Create an itinerary including Playa Delfines
Escape the tourist crowds by visiting Playa Delfines, one of Cancun's few uncrowded beaches. With slightly rougher sand and choppier water than some of the other spots nearby, this stretch of coastline compensates for a lack of modern amenities with fine views and a peaceful atmosphere. Ideal for those tired of throngs of vacationers, this little getaway also offers public parking--another rare plus. All that said, you do need to be mindful of riptides and heavy currents if you decide to swim here, so check the signs for the current conditions. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Playa Delfines and many more Cancun attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Cancun itinerary site.

  • I don't have any awesome experience to share. It was crowded and somewhat dirty. Beach at my resort has similar or better views with clean beach.

  • Bright blue water as far as the eye can see, white sand, and the warmth of the sun against your skin. What more could you ask for? This is a great beach with lots of umbrellas for public use, though be warned it gets quite busy and you’ll be fighting for a spot in the shade if you come later in the day! Also love that there are plenty of lifeguards and folks selling snacks and refreshments here.
  • Nice beach. A few vendors with water and fruits but little outside of this. It's a welcome break from the non stop selling in other beaches but it's too bad there isn't a shop a little closer or a cafe. If you're looking to bring your own drinks (no glass allowed) and don't want to rent a chair or be bothered, it's top pick
  • Impressive! The Caribbean Sea was a perfect turquoise colour! Most of the beach was empty when we went due to storms, it cleared up later on and we had the time of our lives there! My favorite beach in North America!
  • It is one of the best public beaches in Cancún, it is a really Must if you visit the area. The beach is just beautiful is highly recommended, there are public bathrooms and showers after you go to swim in the beach. Don't miss to stop here!
  • Nice and clean. There are bathrooms, showers as well as a home-made kids playground. There are vendors going back and forth but I highly suggest to walk up the road to “go mart” which is like 5 min walking distance which has everything you need. The only disappointment is no matter how good the sand or water is, it gets a lot of seaweed as well.
