Best nude beaches in Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Cancún and the Riviera Maya

Mexico is amazing, first of all. And its beaches are magnificent, both in the Caribbean and on the Pacific Coast; They are some of the best in the world. Our condolences to Switzerland, Bolivia or Mongolia (hint: they have no coast, neither for better nor for worse). As for nudist beaches, Mexico offers incredible resorts and beaches where you can enjoy a paradisiacal environment with all the luxuries.

We take a closer look at three of the best nudist resorts/beaches out there, found in the Riviera Maya, and something for everyone. Do you want it on the sun and fun side? There is one. Are you looking for a place where nudity leads to sensuality and seduction? Yes, there is also one. Have a look!

The best nudist beaches in Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Cancun and the Riviera Maya

Playa Sonrisa

This beach and resort in Xcalak, on the Costa Maya, has a lot to do: snorkeling, diving, kayaking and happy hour. It is located next to the Xcalak Reefs National Marine Park, having an immense beauty and natural diversity a few steps from the hotel rooms.

To get to Playa Sonrisa, it is best to go to the San Pedro Airport in Belize (50 km) instead of the Cancun International Airport (316 km), but both are common options.

Playa Escondida Au Naturel Resort

This resort in Kantenah (between Playa and Tulum) was awarded the Tripadvisor Traveler’s Choice in 2012 and 2020 as one of the best resorts in the country.

In fact, it is hidden, in the sense that it is on the edge of a mangrove jungle, which reinforces the privacy of the guests. People are expected to be nude at all times, but public displays of “affection” are discouraged (actually prohibited).

There are many activities you can participate in, such as coconut painting, tequila tasting, water volleyball, cocktail class, night shows, foam parties or Spanish classes. In addition, you can organize your own nudist wedding. It has a symbolic value, so it will not be legally binding, but they offer this service.

Here are some photos, in case you’re curious:

Desire Riviera Maya Pearl Resort

Clothing optional! This resort in Puerto Morelos (between Playa del Carmen and Cancun) is built with one thing in mind: sensuality. It is a place for luxury and pleasure, to wake up your senses and to let yourself go, either in the pool, in the jacuzzi, in the suites, at the beach, or in their playroom. Their slogan in 2020 was ‘seductive and sanitized’. Take a look at their resort (yes, they own a red swimming pool):
