Default Topless/Nude beaches in Cozumel or Costa Maya?

HEY! Hope you all had a great Christmas and hope you all have a great New Year.
We are wondering if anyone knows of topless and/or nude beaches in Cozumel and/or Costa Maya. We're going on the Sensation in June, and DEFINITELY want to do some "catchin' rays" time. Thanks!

(and no, we're not perverts, we're just married and far from dead)

By the way, I read that you can rent mopeds when you arrive at the port in Cozumel and Costa Maya.....is that true, and if so, how much for the day?

I know there is one in Costa Maya, off the beaten path... can't remember the name though... sorry. You might be better off asking on the ports of call boards... some of the locals post over there and might know more. You can enjoy the topless deck on the ship everyday

I would make sure that if you combine the 2 activities, at least wear a helmet!

In Cozumel (according to the map I have ) there is a bar on the other side of the island called Mezcalito's that has a nude beach and bar. We did go by it on a tour last Nov. and I saw a sign that stated NUDE BAR.

Cool

I've been to Cozumel about 6 times and Costa Maya a couple of time. I've never heard of a topless or nude beach. In general, I've found Mexico to be pretty conservative so it might be frowned upon.

On the other side of the island is Mezcalitos bar and they offer an area for topless or nude sunbathing. If you go topless or nude at the bar they give the ladies a free to-kill-ya shot. They also have photo albums at the bar of past topless/nude guests who left a photographic expose. Real rustic with talapas and hammacks, no electricity, but beer on ice. Beach is a rocky bottom with surf sometimes rough. Not packed with tourist and very laid back. Just take the road that goes through downtown and as it makes a turn to the left on the other side of the island you're at Mezcalitos. Nice staff their too.

As I recall if you do the Passion Island excursion from Cozumel there is the opportunity for "catching rays". When we arrived we were told that there were other parts of the island available for adults to enjoy. It sounded as though you could do pretty much what ever you wanted to do in those areas.
My gift to the world is to never be seen outside in less than shorts.
You're welcome!

Speaking as someone who has been on the Passion Island adventure, yep pretty much anything goes there.

Do people really take "full advantage" of the anything goes parts of the island?
DW and I were nursing hangovers from the night before in Playa (Senior Frogs strikes again!) so walking up the beach to see what was what didn't appeal to either of us.

Carnival offers an excursion called "Naked Drunks On Mopeds." It books up real early, though, so sign up as soon as you board the ship.

Dawson, we have been to Cancun a few times as well as Playa Del Carmen, and topless is the norm in most areas there.

Dawson, we have been to Cancun a few times as well as Playa Del Carmen, and we saw LOTS of topless sunbathing all over the place......just for your "future reference".... And from the posts above, you should have asked before you went so you know where the good spots are! Now you have to go back!!! LOL...
