Re:Tulum Mexico

I contacted El Dorado Seaside Suites (next door to HBR) and asked whether "thong swimwear was acceptable for men/women."  First they responded that "swimwear is required."  Then, when I e-mailed them again and said I understood that nudity was not allowed, but what did they allow "thongs for men and women," I got a quick one-word reply, "Yes!!" (their exclamation marks).  Since I specifically mentioned men twice, I have to take that as an affirmative.  We leave on Friday; I'll try to make a report from Mexico if I can get online.

 Faceless, No problem wearing a any suit in that area.  If you get a chance, Head down to the real Tulum.  I like La Zebra beach club which has good food and drink.  You can hang there and walk north/south in a thong or nude... Show off the wife a bit!  :)

Just got back from spending a few days in Tulum and walked the entire beach in a thong. Both thongs and topless are fine, although you won't see many (any?) other guys in a thong.

OK, here is my report, such that it is.  First, we never had the opportunity to try the area south from La Zebra since my wife had a medical condition and we ended up cutting the trip shorter than intended.  Second, directly in front of the El Dorado Seaside Suites would not be a good place to thong because the beach is very tiny and it's jam-packed with dork shorts.  No thongs on anybody and only one or two topless, all the way at the end.  Also, to get there from Hidden Beach you have a long walk along the "not beach," by which I mean hard shore concreted and rocked areas followed by 2,000,000 lounge chairs stacked exactly 6" apart.  Could you do it?  I guess, but it wouldn't be a comfortable thing to do.  South of El Dorado Seaside Suites, the beach is much better and sometimes not all that crowded, so I did in fact strip down to my g-string and went in the ocean and had a good time, and the passersby basically paid me no mind.  Ironically, we were also at El Dorado Maroma for a cruise, and the beach there is so much better and wider that actually I could see wearing a thong there.  There is actually no comparison between the beach there and at El Dorado Seaside Suites.  I personally get uncomfortable in a packed setting no matter what I have on.  OTOH, Hidden Beach was a very, very nice place to stay ... as long as you don't try to swim in the ocean.  They have a short "beach" but the water is about 6" deep and just chock-full of rocks and sea urchins.  You couldn't even walk in it with water shoes.  Maybe rubber boots.  In other words, the hotel is fantastic but essentially their beach is worthless.

Staying at Dos Ceibas in Tulum. Looking for reviews in regards to wearing thong there.
Has anyone worn thongs or g strings to any of the beach clubs?
I would like to spend as much time working on g string tan line.

It is still true: the farther South you move from Cancun to Playa del Carmen to Tulum, the more skin you see exposed. I walked on Tulum beaches wearing thong, often past security guards at beach front hotels.  No problem.

Re:Tulum Mexico

Cutthroat, where did you go nude?  At the hotel and using their facilities, or "down the beach"?  If at the hotel, were you made uncomfortable nude by the hotel or the other guests?  I also find your comment interesting that you got stares for your g-string ... I would think you'd get more stares for being nude!
I ask because I am headed to Tulum next March and I'm very interested in nude/g-string use of the beach.  I am pretty sure no one would say anything about the g-string just because the beach area there is spread out and uncrowded, and I've noticed when people are spread out, they tend to keep quiet versus when you are at a big crowded resort, groupthink tends to take over and you get comments.  But the nude issue concerns me.  Oh, the ability to swim and suntan nude would be absolutely fantastic ... but I don't want trouble or undue attention.  The hotels won't tell their policy, and if they do, they say nudity is not allowed, but there are lots of reports like yours on TripAdvisor that say nudity is fine in this area and no one will say anything.  Unfortunately those reports leave out a lot of details, like when, where, and how.  Can you be nude at your hotel and use their lounge chairs and get bar service there and use the toilet?  Or do you have to move to a deserted area down the beach where there are no facilities?  If I have a concern about who is going to say something or stare or arrest me, I might as well wear my g-string full time and be legal and not worried about it.  I am booked (so far) at Nueva Vida de Ramiro, which sometimes is said to allow nude on TripAdvisor but has no official policy that allows it.  So, can you elaborate on your experience?  If Dos Ceibas is welcoming to nudity, should I change my reservations?

Re:Tulum Mexico

If you want to know about Dos Ceibas, the best way to find out is with an email to the hotel! They will prefer to deal with it before you get there and avoid having an issue. Full nudity at most places isn't encouraged. Thongs are usually OK though. And topless for women too.
As far as Tulum goes, it is at the edge of a designated biosphere. Within that area, which is huge, development is discouraged and there are miles and miles of open beach. Once you're there it's highly unlikely anyone is going to have an issue with nudity. It is worth mentioning that local people flock to the beach on Sunday, so it might be nice to cover up a bit out of respect to them.

Re:Tulum Mexico

Date Posted:10/20/2014 06:59:42

Well, pikeman, I have to disagree, at least a little.  Theoretically you are correct, but for a number of reasons I don't think the hotel will give a straight answer and hence I think the best way to find out is to ask someone who has actually been there.  I have e-mailed Nueva Vida in the past and been told they don't allow nudity (thongs are fine), yet there are several reports on TripAdvisor of people who say they were there nude.  The web site of Dos Ceibas -- like that of Nueva Vida -- says nothing.  I suspect the hotels don't want to outright say yes because that could bring the authorities down on them or maybe they fear being overrun with nudists who would drive away (they think) the clothed crowd.  OTOH from every report I've read, they seem to simply have no problem with discrete nudity as long as it doesn't scare away the other guests, and some reports even indicate getting bar service on the beach while nude.  But, I can't see them trying to explain that policy in writing, let alone translating a question from English to Spanish and then translating their answer from Spanish back to English to reply.  Easier and safer for them to just say no, but that doesn't mean it's the final answer.  Anyway there are many reasons why a hotel might not tell you their true policy by e-mail, which is why I'm eager to hear the REAL story from Cutthroat.

Re:Tulum Mexico

This avoidance of the issue _may_ have to do with what happens on their property vs. off their property. My resort of choice is Hidden Beach Resort. This is a fully-nude venue. The companion resort, El Dorado Seaside Suites, which is topless and thong-friendly, is to the south and must be crossed to exit the property, and be on "public" beach". So I cross this clearly-marked property line in a thong and after I clear their property, lose the thong and have a nice long stretch of very pretty beach and water where nobody can tell me to cover-up while swimming, jogging, whatever.I am always very careful to put the thong back on before coming back onto the El Dorado property and have had no issues, other than some pleasant looks from women guests and even an inquiry as to where I got my swimwear. Nothing happened. And that's exactly as it should be!

Though it is evolving, the vibe in Tulum is still live and let-live.
As more Americans discover and populate this beautiful area, the laid back attitude is, sadly, replaced by pretension.

I've laid out and strolled for miles in a thong, but always with my bride close by. As has been stated elsewhere, this helps to dispel misplaced stereotypes. People will not look with favor on anyone who appears to be preening and self-aware.

On a practical note, from the NVR or DC and south, there are fewer people. By the time you reach the Biosphere, the beach is empty. I've sunned, walked and swam nude is this area. Recall the caveat though: nudity is not allowed on public beaches in Mexico. Hotels and their property above the high tide line can make policy which best fits their values.

The g strings I was wearing were from Us4men and were transparent. They are about as minimal one can get. They create a great tan line. The suits I wore over the top were white square cut style that I removed the lining. You could easily see the g strings underneath. After a couple of trips up to the bar 2 ladies asked why I even bothered wearing the white suit. After that I would walk up in my gstring, no problems.
In the mornings I would head out to the beach to watch the sunrise. I would strip down nude and would take a morning swim, no issues. Very few people on the beach. If you head into Sian Kaan there are plenty of places to go nude. I would even flyfish nude down by the boca pilla bridge towards the ocean. 
There are some cenotes that aren't so developed that I wore a gstring and then just stripped down nude since there weren't that many people there.
They did have a beach patrol that would come by every once in awhile on the main beach.
I felt that going nude on the main beach was pushing it as I never saw another nude person except in the morning. They would strip down and then go swimming.
When I would go on long walks I would wear a traditional thong as I wasn't comfortable with wearing the g strings.
I felt 100% comfortable wearing a g string while laying out. I had several people stop and talk me, asking where I bought such a small suit. It seemed that most of the people there were Americans so less tolerant than other.

 I stayed at Dos Ceibas. The greatest place, the greatest employees. Unfortunately it is closed right now from what I understand due to a land dispute. I have never and will probably never meet the coolest employees ever. The owner was the nicest lady and she ran a great operation. I hope the land dispute is settled soon. 
Very rustic but clean rooms. The crew were great. I was maybe 15 minutes walking down the beach to sian kaan.
The employees were from all over the world. Very open and a blast to hang with. They could care less what you were wearing on the beach. 
Tulum is beyond beautiful. Wearing a g string walking towards the main area was uncomfortable. Walking towards Sian Kaan , no issues. 
If you do  go that far South it is worth renting a car to get around. I would go again in a heart beat.

 Just coming from vacation.  We spent 4 days in Tulum before going to Cancun.

In Tulum we stayed at Nueva Vida de Ramiro and it was great.

I didn't see nude people, and I walked daily down to Sian Kan reserve.  I did see lots of hippies and guys in dork shorts, a few of them in speedos but only saw one guy in an Aussiebum bikini (half way).  I did see a lot of topless gals at the beach.

Me and my wife wore thongs most of the times and we didn't feel uncomfortable. 

If I go back To Tulum again I will go as south as possible, maybe Casa de las Olas. 

Our time in Tulum was a very nice.  My wife was very upset when we left to go to Cancun.

Later,  in Cancun, we saw more thongs than at Tulum.

Catalonia Royal Tulum is perfect.  Wear your thongs, topless is fine on the beach and at the pool.  Lots of Italians so the bikini bottoms are already somewhat skimpy most of the time, some thongs, many cheeky bottoms.  Best beach in the area.

Its definitely hard to get a straight answer by emailing any hotel.  When I was there in 2013, I emailed my hotel and specifically asked about nudity, and was specifically told no.  But when I got there, it was no problem.  It did take me several days to figure this out, but after several days I was always laying out and swimming nude and no one ever said anything.  Even when using other hotels beach chairs (which no one also cared about, which is unusual).  I did put my g-string on to walk the beach, but any time I wanted to rest or swim, I stopped at the nearest hotel, grabbed a vacant lounger, and took off my suit.  Never any problem.  Sure hope that hasn't changed..PS  Its definitely true that you will stand out, as few people are completely nude.  If that is a problem for you, then I would suggest going as far south as possible.  But you can probably be nude anywhere if you want.

The FAQ on the La Zebra Hotel states:"Clothing OptionalSomeof our guests discretely sun bathe and swim in some state of undress.  We arefine with this, as long as it is discrete and does not offend other guests.  Thebeach is long and deserted to the south of us, so guests who really want to gonaked all the time tend to wander down the beach a bit."
Although we frequently hear that nudity is okay in this area, this is the first recognition I've seen from a hotel.  I am headed to Nueva Vida de Ramiro in about 10 days.  Nueva Vida is next door to La Zebra, although Nueva Vida's e-mail to me seemed to discourage nudity (no matter what I've read elsewhere).  Also, when I look at Google Maps, it doesn't really seem to be "deserted" south of La Zebra -- at least not close to La Zebra -- unless you go all the way into the Sian Kaan, which is quite a ways further down.  I'll check out the situation at both places and report back.

I saw a small handful of men wearing short trunk briefs and one or two in Speedo briefs, but no men with thongs. No one seemed to mind.

i had 4 days at Nueva Vida de Ramiro (NVR), followed by a week at Hidden Beach Resort (HBR - actually, I'm still here).  I spent three out of four days at the beach at and around NVR, entirely in my 3/8" narrow MS Poser, navy blue.  This is my report, and it begins with a question:  What does "thong friendly" mean?  If it means, will the hotels or Mexicans care that you are wearing a thong, then Tulum is thong-friendly because none of the Mexicans even notice, let alone care.  The tourists, however, are completely different.  I became a one-man tourist attraction.  I took the "to heck with you approach" when walking, and mostly it wasn't too bad.  On several occasions I got loud peals of laughter but when walking you can at least get past them.  Oddly, I got heckled more at La Zebra than anywhere else -- odd, because La Zebra's web site seems to indicate nude is fine.  The worst was just laying down in a covered bed with my wife, i.e., not directly in anyone's view.  However, the word apparently got out  that there was a guy in a thong,and there was this constant stream of @$$holes with cameras, very obnoxious and no attempt to hide what they were doing.  It was particularly upsetting to my wife.  Moreover, about 99% of these @$$holes were fully clothed, wearing "shorts" below the knee, with T-shirts and long dresses on the women.  Never saw another guy in a thong and I think maybe six or seven women in thongs in three days.  What a beach.  As for those who said they used the beach nude or enjoyed the beach, you must have gone at the slowest time, or you have a skin thick as elephant hide.  BTW, we also walked down to Sian Kaan and briefly swam nude, but if this is your plan, get a hotel a lot closer than NVR.  It is about 1-1/2 miles each way.  And while you are there, there will still be people walking by clothed with cameras.  Even if they don't know you, it is unpleasant.
Tulum itself is overcrowded, has poor facilities, and is grossly overpriced.  The hotel rooms mostly have no A/C and are priced okay if you can stand the humidity to sleep, however you will also face little water pressure and no hot water.  The average supper cost is at least $30 per person in every restaurant we saw, and that doesn't even count drinks.  We won't go back.  Not worth it.

 Actually these are not young people hassling me.  This was last week and spring break has not even begun.  These are people 40 and up, many of which are carrying infants (no idea why anyone would bring an infant to Tulum, it must be miserable for the baby).  When I say 40 plus, those are the ones taking pictures while I'm just sitting there.  I had fewer hassles while walking but I can't really ID them because I refuse to look their way and give them the pleasure of a reaction.  What amazes and shocks me is the incredible rudeness of people taking pictures of a couple lying quietly on a beach bed under a shade and not in anyone's path.  Have they no manners at all?  Pathetic.  I noticed Erik above recommended staying at Casa de las Olas, and IF I were to go again, I would second that.  It is so far down the beach that we saw few walkers in that area.  However, you'd need a rental car and you'd better be used to sleeping in high humidity without air conditioning.  We are at Hidden Beach now.  You pay more but you get far more.  Very comfortable here and the wife is verrrry happy.  Delicious food and our shower here is actually hot (!).  We used more water in that one shower than in four days of showers at NVR.

 I strongly suspect that my experience in Tulum would have been completely different if I had gone during the slow season; i.e., September.  Every time I've encountered snickerers and laughers, they are part of big groups (i.e., no courage of their own).  There would also be fewer beach walkers in September, probably fewer Americans (why is it always Americans who are intolerant?), and if you went far enough south (i.e., Casa de las Olas), you might not encounter any walkers with cameras at all.  The experience was worse for my wife than for me.  I successfully ignored the snickerers and laughers while I was out walking, and could ignore the walkers while I was just laying there reading and sunning.  Not easy, not pleasant, but "doable."  Also, the experience proves JM's comment that photos disappear into the internet -- I've never yet seen myself online despite probably hundreds of photos being taken of me.  The real damage is that the obnoxious walkers hurt my wife's feelings very badly, and now she won't go with me anywhere but a nude resort where there are no gawkers.  If I'm **lucky**, she might try Venice Beach with me next summer near other thongers.

Wow faceless, it sounds awful! Its been a while since I was there, and I'm sure each year its becoming more "touristy" with crowds and prices to match. I always stay in pueblo Tulum, just s few clicks inland, better prices and better night life. Still, its rural Mexico and standards won't match Miami, Vegas or Waikiki. Last time I was there was a July, plenty of college backpacker types but they travel in pairs, couples or alone so no "herd" mentality as its found in and around Spring break... Cancun is Spring break central and Tulum falls under its shadow. Playa del Carmen I found more cosmopolitan and even saw what looked like a pair of wicked weasels and plenty of plastic surgery on some very attractive locals.

Re:Tulum Mexico

Date Posted:04/09/2015 05:20:15

I agree that Playa de Las Olas would be a good place, because it's right next to Sian Kaan and too far down the beach for all but the most dedicated walkers.  OTOH, it's so far down that you'd better either rent a car or be prepared for a long taxi ride.  La Zebra is right next door to Nueva Vida de Ramiro, and while I was there, La Zebra was ground zero for most of the people who were jerks.  In fact, that was the only place I got commentary while walking all the way down to Sian Kaan.  Since La Zebra is the one that puts in its FAQs that nude is okay, that is a heck of a contradiction.  I wonder if a lot of their guests were textiles who chose La Zebra specifically to gawk -- and since there was not a single person at La Zebra who was either nude, topless, or in a thong at La Zebra, my guess is that I was the easiest best thing they could find to gawk at -- because I was stationary on the beach bed and therefore an easy target.  I have an idea that IF we had stayed at Casa de Las Olas in September, it would have been a completely different experience, but frankly it's just not worth it when there are legal nude beaches like Haulover right here in the U.S. where there are few gawkers.

 Wow, Faceless, your experiences are certainly different from mine!  Now I was there 2 years back, and probably a week or 2 earlier than you, but not at all off-season, as La Zebra and most of the other places were quite crowded.  I sure hope you just ran into a bad group, and things have not changed that much in 2 years.  I was staying a bit further north, but spent much time at La Zebra, as they had comfortable loungers with plenty of shade.  The entire time I was there I was nude and no one said anything.  Sure, a few people noticed, and there was some laughter, and I am sure many cameras, but absolutely no real harassment.  And I definitely used all their chairs and hammocks, and went in the water many times.  .  I think this just goes to show what I have experienced many other places as well; namely that experiences will vary widely for no apparent reason.  So I guess everything on this board must be taken with a certain amount of caution.  I have definitely been on both sides of this; I have had problems in places others said are no problem, and others have had problems where I have not.

Davy, the comments were annoying while walking but since I rapidly passed by them, it wasn't that hard to deal with.  My big annoyance was the constant stream of people obviously taking my picture while I was using the shaded beach bed with my wife.  Sheesh, over and over and over, and there was not even any pretending to take pictures of something else.  As for being nude at the resort, NVR told me outright "no" and even if they allowed it at La Zebra, I can't imagine being nude while everyone else around is in dork shorts.  It must make a difference what crowd is there when you are there.  I guess we could experiment with Tulum again, but it's actually much easier and cheaper just to go to Florida or California and be nude where nude is allowed or to thong where thongs aren't something to be gawked at.  After using Blind Creek Beach in Florida, I'm spoiled and don't want to go anywhere else.

The wife and I where in Tulum in July 2016 we stayed at Intima Tulum a clothing optional hotel great hotel food is pricey so we ate in town as we had a rental car.  Having a rental car is the way to go in Tulum as it allows you to get out and not be tied to a hotel.  Enjoy..
