Cancun Hotels and Places to Stay
Nude beaches in Cancun
A major activity favored by many tourists in Cancun: sun bathing. These services are normally exclusive for hotel guests, or you can buy a day pass which also gives you the right to use the pool, pool towels and may include food. These day passes have become quite expensive and way out of reach for many locals. In fact, allthough the beaches are public according to Mexican law, the hotels have made it their business to close the entrances to the beaches.
Cancun topless women
You will see an ocassional topless sunbather on the beaches in Cancun. Certain resorts will have more topless sunbathers around their pool area than you will see on the beach. Crown Paradise Club has an adult only pool that is topless. Grand Oasis And there was a lady Topless sunbathing. And she was no glamour doll. Yes they are topless on the beach mostly were we stayed. Stayed at the Riu Caribe , with! But he tld me once you see a topless women as old as your mother it takes all the fun out of it. My teenager daughter was more shy then my son about it. Didn't bother me after the first one.
My husband and I are going to Riu Cancun for the first time in June. Like Earl does, I go topless all the time. I get a funny look now and then, but we older guys take it in stride. No snide remarks though.
