Playa Delfines, Cancun

4.6
#1 of 18 in Parks in Cancun
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.

    spacious beaches, sea with beach umbrellas and open public ideal if you want to hang out. If you stay all day I recommend you go to the House with beach service

    Nice beach a bit removed from the more touristy center of La Zona Hotelera. The views are beautiful, and you can take a picture with the Cancún sign! One of the more quiet and peaceful attractions this city has to offer.

    Execellent location to come and enjoy some time by the most blue and beautiful water in Cancun. It also has a perfect spot for the famous Cancun sign overlooking the ocean. There is public showers and restrooms and plenty of space to lay down on the beach, parking may be hard to find depending on the time of day.

    This is definitely a must stop if you are visiting in Cancun! We stayed out beach bumming for hours, took the bus from the condo. We weren't far from Cancun sign the bus stops there regularly with tourists taking pictures, the line wasn't that long.

    Gorgeous beach. It's very easy to get here on the bus from the city or hotels (10.5 pesos per person). On the beach, there are a lot of people selling food and drinks, or you can bring your own cooler. There are public umbrellas and chairs as well, which are free to use just like the other public beaches in Cancun. The restrooms and showers are fine if you'll be spending all day on the beach.

Where to stay in Cancun

Cancun's accommodations cater to everyone from spring-break partygoers to distinguished luxury seekers. By far the most densely developed area for hotels is the boomerang-shaped Punta Nizuc-Cancun and the connecting Bulevar Kukulcan, projecting out into the sea and offering prime beach access. Among the stylish resorts, you can find expansive party hostels offering large swimming pools. If you'd like a more independent Cancun vacation, consider staying at one of the private rentals scattered along the coast.
