About Naughty Beach
Go back in time to our Secret Paradise
Naughty beach is a new weeklong event, taking place November 3-10, 2018, on a beautiful clothing optional beach in Mexico. This isn't your typical resort city in a busy hotel zone, this is a remote area that hasn't been spoiled by massive amounts of tourists. Imagine going back in time and visiting Negril, Jamaica 40 years ago, Orient Bay before it was "discovered" or Playa Del Carmen in Mexico before all of the souvenir shops, Diamonds International and chain restaurants opened.
We have found a secret paradise where time goes by slowly, and life on the beach is like it should be... Join us and come experience this amazing place for yourself.
We are going to price this event like our other Naughty events. We are going to charge an "event fee" so we can pay for some of the rooms to become playrooms.
We will also be hiring entertainment (DJ's, acrobats, cirque performers, firedancers, bands, live music, etc...) we will be renting shuttles to take people from the hotels to our nightly show (we will alternate where the shows and dinners are each night, so everyone gets to see all of the properties). We will have to hire drivers and other locals to ensure everyone has a stress free week.
We will set up a couple of bonfires with sculptures that will burn (ala: Burning Man) and we will be having some ceremonies that feature local culture and customs. We are looking to build a Temazcal on the beach. This is super hot sauna (on steroids) that is used in ceremonial cleansings in Mexico.
For NIN we charge $675 for the 5 night event and $625 for 4 nights. We are going to charge $700 for the week ($50 per person, per day) to handle all of the shuttles, activities, playrooms and entertainment we are putting on.
The rooms will be charged separately and you will pay the hotel directly. The average room cost is $100 a night. You can pay up to $200 a night for an air conditioned suite, or as little as $75 a night for a standard room on the beach.
The total cost will be far less than any resort we have ever booked before. About half of the cost of all inclusive clothing optional resorts.
The sunsets straight off the beach to create the perfect view of some of the most stunning sunsets you'll ever see. The light show doesn't stop once the sun sets, in fact, that is when the sky turns into a vibrant canvas of colors lasting well after the sun disappears on the horizon.
We will celebrate the sunsets with evening dinners that will coincide with each sunset, allowing you to enjoy these scenes with friends. After all, the only thing better than seeing incredible sunsets is to be able to share them with your partner and with others.
Clothing Optional Beach
You can go naked, or topless or wear whatever you want. The entire beach (almost 1.5 miles) is designated as a nude beach. In fact, it is the only beach in all of Mexico that is "offcially designated" by the Mexican Government to be a nude beach.
This is a very wide beach, with very fine sand, perfect for long walks, getting lots of sun and hosting our nightly parties. You can be nude on any part of the beach, in all of the hotel pools but you need to wear something (if even a towel or a wrap) in the restaurants.
Our Secret Paradise
Join us on an adventure to this undiscovered destination before it ends up over crowded, with lots of resorts and chain restaurants.
The beauty of this location is that it is still off the beaten path, giving it a true charm that you can't find in popular destinations like the Yucatan Peninsula, Jamaica and most places that were once quiet, but are now overrun with tourists.
For now, this area of Mexico is still like walking back in time and we are looking to share this experience with a few fun couples in 2018.
Our "Secret Paradise is located on the Pacific side of Mexico, near Huatulco. There are a limited number of flights (when compared to Mexico City or Cancun), but there are plenty of great options from
Fly into Huatulco (Airport code: HUX) and we will arrange a shuttle to bring you to your hotel. The hotels are located just 26 miles from the airport and costs $26 each way (per couple).
Most major hubs in the US and Canada can get to Huatulco (HUX) with only one stop, usually in Mexico City (MEX). There are some airlines that have non-stop flights from the US (see list on the left) which cuts down the travel time considerably.
Sometimes there are long layovers in Mexico City, we recommend embracing these layovers and using it to explore Mexico City, one of the great cities of North America.
We even spent the night in Mexico City on our last trip down to Huatulco area and had a great time exploring (& eating) in this cultural hotspot.

Eating Out in Zipolite
Great food, at affordable prices
One of the things we love about Zipolite, is that there are so many great choices to eat great, local food, at very affordable prices. You can get fresh fish or shrimp, which are caught right next door at Port Angel, cooked up for you every night.
Each night the downtown street (3 blocks) turns into a pedestrian walkway and the restaurants pull their tables and chairs out into the street and you can eat under the stars. There will be vendors setting up to sell hand made crafts and jewelry and street performers to entertain you.
I will highlight some of the restaurants and the choices for you to try during your stay. Unlike an all inclusive, we encourage you to try different places each night, bring friends and make it a social event.
Operated by a couple from Italy, this is THE best place to eat in Zipolite. Most of the places in Zipolite are listed as one or two dollar signs ($) on Tripadvisor, but La Providencia had 4 dollar signs and we heard it was expensive, but decided to give it a try anyway.
Tess and I had two martinis, two cocktails, two appetizers, two entrees and dessert. Our bill came to $44. Expensive? We thought this was a bargain, especially because the food was amazing. One of the best restaurant experiences we have had in years. We encourage everyone to eat here at least once and most will go back for more.
We were told to walk out the back of our hotel and take a left, but when we did, the road turned into a dirt road and ran into a creek bed. We went back to the hotel and they explained that this was the correct way to go and look for stones to get across the creek (it was very shallow) and head down the path into the jungle and we'd see it. Certainly an adventure.
A wonderful dinner
We found this romantic restaurant tucked into the jungle with no walls and some tables under the stars. I got the African Shrimp with chickpeas and vegetables, which was some of the best shrimp I have ever tasted. Tess got sliced pork and the sauce was so flavorful, but light and bright, not a heavy syrupy sauce. These Italians know how to cook. The menu changes often, but here is a sneak peak (note: the prices are in Pesos).
One of our favorite places to eat on the beach, El Aquimista is located on the north end of Zipolite Beach and just steps from our main hotels. Tip: Try their huge frozen daiquiris and margaritas, made with fresh fruit.
You can also get pizza here as well as fresh tuna, ceviche, guacamole and a variety of specialties like Mediterranean Tuna or the Asado de Tira.
Eat on the street...
One of our favorite places to eat is simply to walk into town and sit down when we smell something good. As the night falls, the restaurants come alive and the streets fill with tables full of people enjoying dining outside.
Make sure you grab a drink at Ron's Bar, a shipping container that turns into a bar each night at 7 pm until Ron is ready to go home.
Not only is Hotel Nude our main hotel, but it is a great place for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They have seating in their main restaurant, or you can eat right out on the beach (see above) with your toes in the sand.
We really love their steak nachos. Absolutely delicious. Their fish tacos are also popular and the salsa is great (but a little spicy). There is an ATM on property and they take credit and debit cards.
Posada Buena Vida
If you want some sushi or Thai food, then head down the beach and look for the big buddha. We may even set up a night for naked sushi (see below). We love Thai food, so we always stop in here, but be warned, Thai food can be spicy, so let your server know if you can't handle spicy food.
They also have fish and chicken and other entrees besides sushi & Thai meals. There is a good variety and the ambiance is so beautiful as you eat right on the beach under a tent.
This newly built hotel has a cute little bar/restaurant nestled into the mangroves, next door to Hotel Nude. This is a great spot for a quiet and relaxing meal and perfect for drinks.
No matter where you choose to eat, there are plenty of great options that are very inexpensive and delicious. You won't find any processed food in this town, only the freshest ingredients made just for you.
