Clothing Optional vacation destinations are nothing new, especially since the naturalist lifestyle is as old as mankind. So it makes sense that some resorts cater to this type of clientele – some offer a relaxing yet discreet atmosphere while others push the limits as long as what happens on the property is entirely consensual. What was once called swinger’s vacations has been replaced with the phrase ‘Libertine Tourism’ but beware that a clothing-optional resort and a libertine destination are NOT the same. One embraces nudity and a natural lifestyle while the other promotes sexual freedom, so they are very different. However, for obvious reasons, the two concepts overlap. Here are the best clothing-optional and libertine resorts in the Caribbean.

For guests wishing to shed their clothes, boats offer transportation to the resort’s very small and private island that contains a ‘NO CLOTHING’ beach. The word ‘optional’ does not exist here so guests are expected to be fully nude.

Desire Resort Riviera Maya is NOT a hotel that caters to naturist families considering the resort bills itself as an ‘erotic adult destination’ where couples interested in exploring alternative lifestyles can frolic in a 30-person jacuzzi or a Play Room located just behind the resort’s nightclub bar.
