Can’t Miss Swingers Resorts in Cancun

Can’t Miss Swingers Resorts in Cancun

If you weren’t already in on the secret, Cancun is known for the three S’s: sun, sea, and swinging. Ok, that may not be strictly true, but it’s undoubtedly one of the top spots in Mexico for swinger-friendly and clothing-optional resorts. It’s also one of Mexico’s top destinations for all-inclusive resort experiences.

Get ready to pack very light because you won’t need clothing where we’re going. This post looks at the best swinger’s resorts and clothing-optional accommodations near Cancun and around the Riviera Maya.

What is a Swingers Resort?

Swinging is when husbands and wives or boyfriends and girlfriends switch partners with other couples and engage in sex with people other than their partners. Swinger’s resorts cater to couples who are established swingers or that are interested in experiencing the lifestyle in a sunny and safe location.

Rules will differ between different resorts, but these are the things to look out for typically:

  • Intimacy – are guests permitted to have sex in public places, and if so, are there specific areas that this is allowed in?
  • Nudity – is nudity permitted in all areas of the resort, or is clothing required in certain areas?
  • Singles – are single guests permitted to stay at the resort, or are bookings limited to couples?
  • LGBTQ+ – is the resort gay-friendly, or does it typically only cater to straight couples?
  • Amenities – does the resort offer the amenities you’d like, such as sea views or all-inclusive packages?

Why Visit Cancun for a Swinger-friendly Vacation?

Cancun is said to be the second most visited place in the world by international travelers (Dubai comes in first), and with good reason. So whether this is your first time dipping your toe into the world of swinging or you’ve been in the lifestyle for a while, Cancun is worth your consideration for your next trip.

Cancun’s location on Mexico’s Caribbean coast gives it the most incredible white sand beaches and warm turquoise waters. There’s no better setting for a sexy vacation; the tranquil water is said to be best enjoyed nude. Unfortunately, the Caribbean location also means Caribbean weather, and Cancun can get pretty hot and steamy. December through April is the best time to visit when the temperature is between 75 and 90 degrees, and there’s very little rain.

Cancun is also very well-positioned to enjoy Mexican culture and history. If you can tear yourself away from your chosen resort, you’ll find many fabulous things to do. Take a day trip to the ancient Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza, hop on a ferry to get a taste of Caribbean island life on Isla Mujeres, or spend a morning swimming with giant whale sharks. Or, head into the center of Cancun and experience the best (and cheapest) tacos and tequila of your life!

Direct flights are also available to Cancun’s international airport from many of the US’s major airports, making the journey relatively quick and easy. Cancun is also a good jumping-off spot for exploring other parts of Mexico. It’s easy to head down the coast by car or bus to check out other world-class destinations like Playa del Carmen, Tulum, and Akumal, which also host nudist and swinging activities.

Without further ado, let’s drop our clothing and inhibitions as we head straight into the best swingers and clothing-optional resorts in Cancun and the Riviera Maya .

Where To Swing In Cancun

Desire Riviera Maya Resort

Just south of Cancun in Puerto Morelos is where you’ll find Desire: a unique swingers resort where hedonism rules and (almost) anything goes. This adults-only, couples-only, clothing-optional oceanfront resort has everything you need for a vacation you’ll never forget.

There are a wealth of amenities and activities at this resort. The on-site spa is perfect for a relaxing and sensual couples’ massage. The resort’s nude beach is a brief stroll away, or you might prefer to head to the rooftop hot tub to relax and get to know some of your fellow guests.

If you prefer your vacations a little more active, Desire Riviera Maya Resort offers yoga classes, water polo, scuba diving tours, and kayaking trips. Once the sun goes down, the fun really begins at the resort’s on-site nightclub or one of the themed nights. For couples that want to explore, the Sin Room (adjacent to the nightclub) is where anything goes.

The guest rooms at Desire are clean, modern, and luxurious. Each suite is equipped with a large, comfortable bed, a coffee machine, a TV with pay-per-view channels, and air conditioning to stop your nights from becoming too hot and sticky.

You’ll find bathrobes, a bath or a shower, and complimentary toiletries in the lavish bathrooms. The oceanfront Passion Suite is extra special. It comes furnished with a roomy king-size bed and a four-person hot tub, giving you plenty of space to host private parties whenever the mood takes you.

Guests are welcome to go topless or nude at the resort’s pool, beach, and hot tub areas. However, cover-ups are required in the lobby and anywhere that food is served. Guests must also be fully-dressed at the nightclub, but revealing outfits and lingerie are strongly encouraged. Sex is permitted in the jacuzzi and Sin Room but not in other public areas.

This resort offers an all-inclusive package that includes meals in all four of the resort’s on-site restaurants. In addition, 24-hour room service is available, and unlimited drinks, meals, snacks, and non-motorized water sports are also included. Check-in is at 3 pm.

Top amenities include:

  • On-site spa with couples massages
  • Lavish and spacious guest rooms
  • Sex-friendly Sin Room and jacuzzi area
  • All-inclusive packages

Temptation Cancun Resort

Temptation Cancun Resort is a sister brand of the Desire brand that owns the Puerto Morelos resort we just covered and is another of the best adults-only resorts near Cancun. So if you’re looking for something a little less risque but still very fun, this might be the best option for you. Singles are also permitted at Temptation, whereas they aren’t at Desire, making it the top adult-fun option in Cancun for solo travelers.

This resort isn’t a swingers resort but bills itself as a “one-of-a-kind playground for grown-ups.” You’ll find topless-optional areas, including a sexy pool, adult games, and lots of naughty fun. Guests at Temptation enjoy daily and nightly entertainment that has been specially designed for adventurous adults.

Temptation also throws extra-wild parties during the weekends of the summer months, so if you’re looking for a spicy vacation (and we’re not just talking about the tacos), this might be the resort for you.

If you’re in the mood for more ‘traditional ‘ vacation activities, head to one of this all-inclusive resort’s seven restaurants for a romantic meal or to the decadent spa for a relaxing massage. There are also regular fitness classes and water sports facilities if you like to keep active.

However, if you want to take a break from resort life, there are many swinger-friendly excursions outside. The Cancun Boobs Cruise is an adults-only topless party with an open bar, DJ, and buffet. The launch point is the Albatros Marina, close to the resort.

The guest rooms at Temptation Cancun Resort are finished in a contemporary style and have all the amenities you’ll need for a comfortable stay. Suites also come with a private jacuzzi to help heat up your vacation, and some rooms offer additional soundproofing in case you anticipate things getting loud. In addition, all rooms benefit from a coffee machine, mini bar, private terrace, and air conditioning.

Top amenities include:

  • Adult games and activities
  • Seven all-inclusive restaurants
  • Full-service spa on-site
