Cancun, Q.R. — A week after the passing of Hurricane Delta, Cancun’s popular Playa Delfines in the Cancun Hotel Zone will reopen. The beach was closed after the passing hurricane left behind a substantial amount of structural damage.
Cancun’s mayor Mara Lezama Espinosa confirmed the reopening of one of the city’s main beaches for October 14. She explained that several of the beaches were shut while city officials worked to restore infrastructure such as beach palapas and lifeguard towers.
She noted that as of October 14, three of Cancun’s beaches will now be open, El Niño, Las Perlas and Playa Delfines. Playas Chac Moon, Ballena and Gaviota Azul remain closed.
Vagner Elbiorn Vega of Cancun Zofemat added that the iconic “CANCUN” letters, which were removed before the arrival of Hurricane Delta, have been replaced. The letters, which are located at scenic Playa Delfines, are once again ready for photographs.
