Zipolite is the beach where bathers go to swim nude but next month they can take off their clothes with more than 1,000 others.
The Oaxaca Tourism Ministry is promoting the 8th Nudist Festival at Zipolite as “the biggest event of its kind.”
To be held from February 2 to 5, “The Nudist Encounter of Mexico” boasts a new promotional poster and is described as “a unique experience that you have to live.”
Organizers estimate that the four-day-long festival will bring together some 1,200 nudists from 25 states and 16 countries.
They say it is the second most searched-for event held in Oaxaca, second only to the Guelaguetza.
“The purpose of this festival is the socialization of the practice of nudism, working on values such as tolerance and respect,” the organizers said in a series of information cards posted on their social networks.
The poster is labeled with the new state tourism brand: Oaxaca, Land Proud of its Roots, which will be officially launched next week in Madrid, Spain, during the International Tourism Fair, Fitur 2023.
The organizers remarked that the number of lodging establishments that accept nudists rose to 11 in 2022, while 12 food and beverage establishments followed suit.
The 2020 edition of the festival had an average of 4,700 attendees per day. Destination searches on specialized lodging pages, travel agencies and flight bookings in internet search engines “have their highest peak of the year” during the festival, said the organizers.
