5 Hotels in Mexico Where You Can Embrace the Swinger Lifestyle

Couples are rethinking traditional relationships and expanding their horizons. Here's a round up of hotels in Mexico where you can embrace the swinger lifestyle.

In recent decades, swinging—also known as “partner swapping”—has become increasingly popular. The chance to experience it for yourself is closer than you might imagine.

In Mexico, we take a look at some hotels that embrace the swinger lifestyle and where sexually-liberal guests are actively welcomed.

Swinger hotels by design

The Original Group firm, based in Cancun, owns two hotels dedicated 100% to the swinger lifestyle. In them, there are even areas dedicated to encounters between couples and every day there are activities that promote them.

Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo

Just outside a fishing village called Puerto Morelos, and just 20 minutes from Cancun International Airport, is the Desire Riviera Maya Resort. Its 114 rooms are designed to delight the senses of those 21+. With a view of either the ocean or the garden, they are spaces where the sensual and the casual collide and invite any fantasy to come true.

Clothing is optional here, and guests are free to enjoy the common areas or the pool naked. Snorkeling and paddleboarding lessons, water tubing, foam parties, and naughty games are just some of the daytime activities for guest entertainment.

Desire is also an all-inclusive and has several specialty restaurants, as well as five (!) different bars. At sunset, there are theme parties, erotic dance shows and live music. From 10pm, the nightclub opens its doors, with the music each night dedicated to a different genre.

You’ll love ordering from the hotel’s Fantasy Menu, whether you want a romantic four-course dinner by candlelight or a steamier scenario. At the hotel spa, you can enjoy a massage in the Jacuzzi—or you and another couple can enjoy it together. Unleash your emotions and live out your erotic fantasies under the stars by reserving a bed on the beach, complete with sensual music, a bottle of sparkling wine, and chocolate-covered strawberries.

For an extra spicy twist, you and your partner can ask to be recorded making love in your room, on the beach, in the dance club, or in the Jacuzzi. They bring the lights and camera: you provide the action.

Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo

The younger sibling of the previous hotel, Desire Riviera Maya Pearl Resort is also located in Puerto Morelos – a heavenly refuge away from the crowds.

The experience starts from the moment you set foot in the hotel, reminiscent of an elegant villa in a lush tropical setting. Check-in is personalized and you are greeted with a glass of sparkling wine.

There are 88 suite, villa or loft style rooms at this all-inclusive accommodation, some with their own terrace and private pool. Every room is spacious and comfortable, allowing you to indulge in hedonism and forget about everything else. To take you to even more blissful heights, the hotel offers a private room for four couples. Inside, you’ll find passionate music to set the scene, plus a swing and just one bed.

The perfect place to indulge your most erotic fantasies, the hotel offers options that you’ll find intensely satisfying. Ever imagine having your entire body slathered with chocolate and whipped cream? A delectable idea, accompanied by sparkling wine, strawberries, and passion fruit.

In addition to 24-hour food and beverage service, the property has three specialty restaurants that specialize in aphrodisiac foods, plus day and night entertainment. The latter is always a theme night, and each evening has a different surprise in store – from “college desires” to men / women in uniform.

Optional activities begin at 10:30am with stretching and yoga classes. Beach volleyball games, erotic dance classes, workshops for couples, musical challenges and more continue throughout the day. 4:30 brings parties in the jacuzzi to meet other couples. Clothing is optional in common areas and intimate encounters are allowed in the Jacuzzi Lounge and the outdoor pool.

The hotel spa offers erotic massages for couples. Ask for the Kama Sutra kit, which includes oils, feathers, scented candles, and the toy of your choice. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, the hotel’s sensuous staff will arrange an exotic dancer to make it truly unforgettable.

Hotels that offer swinger experiences

In addition to the above, there are also hotels in Mexico that, without being dedicated solely to the swinger lifestyle, do organize annual meetups where the resort dedicates itself exclusively to hosting this group. Make sure to check their calendar before you plan your trip.

Intima Resort Adults Only, Tulum

A few blocks from the center of Tulum is Intima Resort, an adults-only hotel where clothing is optional. Surrounded by the Caribbean jungle, it is a complex that, as the name implies, is intimate and private. Here, guests can embrace naturism – just make sure to bring a towel to sit on (a rule for hygienic reasons).

With the exception of the suites, each of its thirty rooms is equipped with a full kitchen, television and views of the pool. Some of them even have a hydromassage tub.

Intima guests can choose between a traditional stay or one that’s all-inclusive. Passions, the resort’s restaurant, offers authentic Mexican food inspired by Mayans to delight guests using only fresh ingredients from the local land and sea. nThere are a few convenience stores a few minutes away where you can find ingredients should you choose to prepare your own meals.

Being a lifestyle-friendly hotel, the staff is respectful and does not limit guests; however, they do intervene if there are any complaints about inappropriate behavior or harassment by other customers.

Breathless, Cabo San Lucas

The only hotel on this list that’s not found in the Riviera Maya is located on the opposite side of the country. Cozied up to the soothing waters of the Sea of ​​Cortez, Breathless Cabo San Lucas Resort & Spa is only for adults and organizes swingers “conventions” from time to time.

Breathless has 169 suites, each with views of the marina and a beautiful furnished terrace. Two infinity pools and a snack bar on the beach will keep you occupied during the day. Restaurants serving Mexican, Italian, Asian and American grill cuisine are all on offer, some of them with communal tables meant for meeting other people. It also has a world-class spa and fitness center open all day, every day.

At Breathless, each month is themed and every day there is a different party to attend. Some of the many events that will stir things up: a carnival-themed champagne pool featuring a live DJ, or a night of dancing with glowsticks and body paint.

Cancun, Quintana Roo

The Temptation Resort offers a revolutionary, all-inclusive concept, welcoming not only couples but also single men and women. Plus, the hotel is planning an expansion and renovation, so guests can enjoy even more fun and tempting surprises.

Temptation Resort offers themed activities that are both fun and sexy. One of the most popular activities is the famous pole dance contest, with the “zombie apocalypse” theme. You’ve dreamed of these dancers in your best nightmares—now get ready to experience their erotic movements in the flesh. You can also choose from a wide variety of clothing-optional outdoor sporting activities, including beach volleyball, beer pong, and cardio splash. What could be better than a workout with naked bodies soaking up the warm Cancun sun?

Don’t miss the Temptastic Pool, open 24 hours a day, where no temptation is out of reach. And keep the fun going with a visit to the dance club, which has very special dress codes. On Wednesdays, latex is required; on Thursdays, lingerie is mandatory; and on Saturdays, guests must dress in sexy red and black attire to awaken their deepest passions.

Temptation Resort also offers exciting excursions that will get your adrenaline pumping. You can rent a boat for an outing to the nearby mangrove swamps, go diving in a subterranean river full of colorful fish, take a dip in a natural well, or go swimming with dolphins in a pool. You can also have a romantic package waiting for you when you arrive: a basket of chocolate-covered strawberries and a bottle of wine. There’s even a private butler at your service whenever you need.

In the Jacuzzi, you can embrace luxury in a bath enhanced with grape milk protein or therapeutic minerals. The bars and restaurants are the perfect setting to meet other couples. The ‘Nice Shoes’ bar offers an extravagant ambiance, where the hotel team entertains guests with sensual interactive games and live shows.
