|About these ratings|
If you tire of the standard beaches along the Hotel Zone, try heading to Playa Delfines, one of the highest points of Cancún, and definitely one of the most unique. The beach often lacks the heavy crowds found elsewhere throughout the hotel zone.
Travelers regard Playa Delfines as the quintessential escapist's beach, pleasing tourists who have grown tired of the smaller beaches in front of their hotels. One traveler on TripAdvisor remarks that Playa Delfines is a "must-walk beach." Once in the water just be mindful of heavy currents and rip tides, since the beach is known for its rough waters.
Delfines offers excellent views of surrounding Cancún and is very accessible by bus, taxi or rental car. If you do decide to drive, the beach is one of the few in Cancún with free public parking.
