Playa Delfines - Review
Playa Delfines is a beautiful beach in Cancun. If you are looking for a place that is slightly off the beaten track, do visit this. It isn’t as popular as the other beaches and certainly isn’t as crowded which makes it a wonderful and relaxing place. The forgotten beach is described as a rather underdeveloped beach as it hasn’t been taken over commercially. As a traveler you can enjoy a secluded beach with pretty little umbrellas adorning it as you enjoy the sun, the sand and the sea. The blue waters are very inviting and being away from the madding crowd you are sure to love this place. For those who are looking for some history lessons in Cancun, this place houses some of the Maya ruins near the beach. Take a stroll down the stretch of the beach, run, jog or just relax; the beach is the perfect idyllic getaway in the middle of the city. Be ahead of your time by planning a visit to Playa Delfines in Cancun trip planner.

Playa Delfines, Cancun Reviews
I did not find it best for swim but yeah great beach with thatched umbrellas. I have read on the blog, the further south you go, more turquoise water you 'll see. It’s true. You get here by any R1 bus, the Cancun sign will welcome you, but you have to be in the line sometimes. Note: you can also see Cancun sign at Playa Langosta beach and it has the better background like a palm tree in the back. Coming to Beach, it has a wide area with the thatched umbrella. I would recommend coming early to get one of these if you 'll come after 11-12 in the noon, you won’t find even space to sit there, it is that crowded. Delfines beach and beach south to this are not recommended for swimming as water can be harsh, aggressive some time but it’s not that bad even if you compare to USA East coast beaches. Beautiful turquoise warm water, soft sand, and sun make it amazing. A bathroom is available here unlike other beaches. Cancun’s north beaches are more known for swimming.
There's a ton of seaweed right now, ruins the overall experience and looks, but the water in general is great and the beach is relatively clean.
Good public beach, during the day there are a couple of beach bars to get drinks and snacks. Waves are stronger here than at Playa Foro. Also, there is a lot more seaweed than to the north end of the strip or the side that looks directly towards Isla Mujeres.
The beach is amazing! Out of all the places I've traveled, the colors of the water here is the best I've seen. The way it looks in photos is how it looks in person and it looks even better in person. It's a must see in my opinion.
Super Nice beach, with a nice weather and the people is friendly, so you can Lay down on the sand or make some new Friends!, There are also a lot of iguanas but they're relaxed just don't bother them and they'll stay calmed.
