Transcript:5 Best Nude Beaches in Mexico

If you are looking to get away from it all, including your clothes, then Mexico has some beautiful nude beaches and resorts that cater to the naturalist crowd. 

There are varying degrees of nudity and accompanying lifestyles, so make sure you know which ones you are the most comfortable with before booking a trip. For example, you may just want to enjoy a topless beach.

Temptations Resort in Cancun Is an All-Inclusive Nude Beach in Mexico

While there are a number of resorts and beaches in Mexico that allow this type of sunbathing, one of the best is the Temptation Resort in Cancun. This adults-only paradise has all-inclusive packages with seven jacuzzis and three swimming pools. The pools are topless optional as is the beachfront area. Along with a wide array of outdoor sports and activities, many of them can be enjoyed while topless. The resort also features some sexy adult games that tempt those with open minds and few inhibitions.

Zipolite Is a Naturalist Nude Beach in Mexico

If you are more into the naturalist setting, there are many nude beaches to enjoy on their own or as part of a resort. Zipolite is a unique town located in the state of Oaxaca on the Pacific Coast.

Not far from Huatulco, the town's main beach is known to be frequented by nudists while the town attracts backpackers, hippies, and those looking for a party atmosphere. While the beach is quite isolated, beware of the strong waves and tide, which can make swimming somewhat dangerous here. Lodging is very casual and the amenities are more local than tourist-inspired.

Cabanas Copal Is a Rustic Nude Beach in Mexico

If you are looking to combine your love the natural with nature, then try Cabanas Copal, a rather rustic eco-hotel in the jungles of Riviera Maya but only steps to the beach. This is actually for naturist families and offers a wholesome environment for those families that like to frolic on vacation in their birthday suits.

Punta Serena Villas Is an Upscale Nude Beach in Mexico

In looking for something a bit more upscale but in keeping with the nudist theme, try Punta Serena Villas and Spa. Located on the Pacific Coast in Tenacatita, Jalisco, this is an all-inclusive resort with a stunning private beach where clothing is optional. The pool, sun lounge area, and tow of its jacuzzis allow for topless enjoyment. However, proper attire is required at the dining facilities.

Desire Riviera Maya Is a Couples-Only Nude Beach in Mexico

There may be those of you who consider nudity part of a larger, more uninhibited and exploratory lifestyle. There are beaches and resorts in Mexico for you, too. Desire Riviera Maya is an all-inclusive resort set on some of the most exceptional white, sandy beaches, offering a nude beach and nude resort.

This is a couples-only retreat that offers a sensual environment to explore your desires together and with other couples, if so desired. Leave your inhibitions at home and enjoy being a spectator, performer, or the main attraction at this unique nudist getaway.

Tips for Visiting Nude Beaches in Mexico

Whether you are just looking for a quiet place to soak up the sun without tan lines, a nudist on the hunt for new vacation spots, or you are a couple seeking some sexy time, make Mexico your next destination. Be sure to know the resort's house rules on nudity and behavior before you go. And, be sure to pack the sunscreen.
