The coastal city of Zipolite, Oaxaca, is slated to host the Mexican Nudist Federation’s (FNM) third annual bear-it-all weekend from Friday, Feb. 2, through Sunday, Feb. 4.

The three-day clothes-out festival will open with a carnival-style parade by locals and visitors alike, along with a live concert of traditional Mexican music.

FNM president Juan Marcos Castañeda said that the festival will also include a display of regional dances, yoga classes, an obstacle course race, a nudist marathon, beach volleyball competitions, a naked whale and turtle tour, and a body-painting workshop.

The FNM’s two previous nudist festivals were also held in Zipolite, which is a small beach community located between Huatulco and Puerto Escondido.

Zipolite is known for being one of the few beaches where nudity is permitted in Mexico.

The FNM nudist festival is open to all.
