As an American in Cancun for an all-inclusive vacation, I'd wondered about this public beach. This trip, I walked down the sand to this beach. It's suprising to me both the size and available amenities.

I would second taking a bus, it is easy and fast and it only cost you $1. You can also stop a taxi and asked them how much (Cuanto Cuesta ) to playa delfines and negotiate the price. probably $15-$20.
