Casa Sol Zipolite

Zipolite draws a diverse crowd including many naturists who come to enjoy one of Mexico’s most famous nude beaches. Playa del Amor has the largest concentration of nudists but on any section of the beach in Zipolite you are likely to run into a naked person. Some hotels and most guest accommodations are fully clothing optional. Naturists are welcome at Casa Sol and although we are not specifically clothing optional, nudity is permitted at the Ocean Pool which is nearest to the beach and on private patios and gardens.

Going out is very safe. The town has unpaved and sometimes unlit streets so a flashlight is a necessary accessory for going out in the evening. There are some excellent restaurants that are very reasonably priced. It is not a big party town but a couple of humble bars draw a lively, friendly crowd. There are no slick clubs or dance bars.

There is a significant gay presence in Zipolite, often couples on holiday or traveling with friends. They are always a welcome component of our social mix at Casa Sol.

Zipolite and the neighboring towns are centers for yoga, massage and various healing arts. Casa Sol is located right up from the beach at Zipolite. The area is popular for guest houses because of the great views, cool evening breezes, and tranquility that comes from being just far enough away from the music in town. A dirt path connects Zipolite to Casa Sol and its neighbors. This path, the hillside terrain and the associated steps may present a challenge to those who are elderly or who have mobility problems.
