Popular Cancun Hotel Zone beach adds dolphin sculptures as new tourist attraction

Cancun, Q.R. — The city of Cancun has added a new tourist attraction to its popular Playa Delfines seaside overlook. The new attraction is a set of five dolphins.

The sculptures were relocated to the Playa del Defines site after being removed from the city’s central Parque de las Palapas due to a complete rebuild of the park.

In a statement, the City of Cancun said “to continue promoting Cancun as a destination to national and international visitors, the Benito Juárez City Council placed a sculpture as a new tourist attraction in Playa Delfines so that tourists and Cancun residents can take a photo.

“The effigy, which is divided into two parts and contains a total of five dolphins, was previously located in the Parque de las Palapas and now appears in one of the corridors between the sidewalk and a viewpoint with a majestic setting of the turquoise sea of the Mexican Caribbean.”

The director of the Administrative Management Unit of the Cancun District project, Carlos Castillo Álvarez, reported that the placement of the sculptures was carried out in conjunction with the Institute of Culture and the Arts, as well as with the support of the Federal Maritime Terrestrial Zone (Zofemat).
