A Clothing Optional Hotel or Resort – Is it for You?
An example of dealing with the gray side of things is the approach taken by the clothing optional Copacabana Hotel & Resort in Jaco Beach, Costa Rica. At this resort a pragmatic level approach is taken to having both clothed and naked enjoyment vacationing together, side by side, by way of having dedicated yet not so removed from the fun or by location, clothing optional areas and activities that many have found works for them in trying the naturist lifestyle, or for practical purposes, searching for the ultimate tan. .
Separation, yet closeness, of a dedicated lagoon shaped pool for clothing optional nude swimming and activities including pool volleyball, has worked to generate interest by nudist and non-nudists alike. So have the cabana beds with enclosing white drapery fabrics, that encourage nude sunbathing for that ultimate tan, yet can afford privacy if so desired.
Nudists and non-nudists alike are increasingly frequenting the all-inclusive hotel. The hotel’s beachfront location on Jaco Beach, one of the largest and nicest beaches in Costa Rica, doesn’t hurt either, although the nud beaches are a little bit further away.
To be fair to everyone the Copacabana Hotel & Resort doesn’t permit nakedness in its Ocean Waves Restaurant and Bar that’s onsite and offers international as well as North American food, but the hotel has just opened a new “Passion Suite” that offers concierge and room services where meals can be enjoyed in one of the most unique and romantic settings that overlooks the clothing optional pool and open air Jacuzzi area. There are regular hotel rooms as well as one bedroom suites, some of which have their own Jacuzzis located on the balcony, from which to choose. The suites have a view of the beach and ocean, and as well overlook the outside entertainment deck area where live music has been a draw as one of the most liveliest resorts on the Pacific side of Costa Rica.
