I’m a proud member of FNM but couldn’t make it to ELAN this time.

A Big Step for Organized Naturism in Latin America

For the sixth regional Gathering, or Encounter (Encuentro / Encontro), the selection of Mexico as host also holds special significance. The Federación Nudista de México (FNM)* is not quite five years old, yet Mexico is – by far – the most populous Latin American nation after Brazil. At the previous ELAN, the Brazilians, who are the most organized, pushed to support Mexico as host to help build strength in the region. And whereas Brazil has a dozen or so official naturist beaches with legal status, in Mexico there were not, until this very event, any such official naturist beaches, only arrangements with hotels (for example, along the Riviera Maya) or else the impetus of tradition, such as at Zipolite where social nudity has long been tolerated.

At the event, which was the first such international naturist event in Mexico, only Mexico…

new cenotes in Yucatan

A other great blog which show that you can enjoy so many places “Naturally”.

Active Naturists

This will be the final post of the ‘Mexican series’ for now, and I feel that another review of recently discovered cenotes is an appropriate finale. After I found out how beautiful and unique cenotes were – they are a special kind of sinkholes typical to Yucatan peninsula – I wanted to explore more of them. The problem with cenotes, in my opinion, is that being a tourist attraction, many appear overdeveloped to the point when they don’t even look natural anymore (with convenient stairs, decorations, souvenir shops around). So, we set up a goal to find some of the least explored cenotes.

We found a description of Chaak-Tun in a travelog that made us believe it was a kind of untouched natural wonder. But when we arrived there, it became clear it was ready for mass tourism, just waiting for the road built next to it to get asphalted…

beaches of Sian Ka’an biosphere reserve, natural and naturist?

I’ve been to these places and its sad that there are less naturist friendly venues. However further south of Tulum is Sian Ka’an which is protected. This means that no more constructions will take pace there. There are only a few palapas so the beaches are almost virgin as we called them here.

Active Naturists

Unfortunately, I have to start from bad news: just one month after I posted about eco-resort Papaya Playa and its clothing-optional beach, upon my second visit there I found out it was no longer clothing-optional. There was a warning on the beach that read: ‘Welcome to Papaya Playa. Clothing is mandatory!’ Unfortunately, Papaya Playa also bought neighbouring resort Copal that was known to be clothing-optional. So, now there is no nudist beach in Tulum’s eco-hotel zone to my knowledge. I’ve read about a couple of luxurious nudist hotels in the area – Hidden Beach Resort, Dolce Vita B& B, and Desire Resort, but they seem to be very expensive and do not offer day passes to the beach. However , if you don’t mind staying away from the hotels, you could go to biosphere reserver Sian-Ka’an or Xcacel-Xcacelito for some more secluded beaches where you can sunbathe and swim ‘as nature…
