Playa Delfines

Located at kilometer 17 of the hotel zone, is one favorite beach for the locals. Although there is also surfing, as in Forum, it is a much quieter beach. You can extend your towel under one of the free umbrellas that are distributed by the beach and enjoy a surfing show. At the entrance, you will find a viewpoint and a long row where you should take a picture with the famous letters “CANCUN”

Travel Tip: bring food, wáter, and also your sunscreen because they aren't any stores close to Playa Delfines, and be careful at the sea conditions are often very choppy.
