Doing what we all think about — going nude in a public, is not so easy in a conservative culture like Costa Rica. Add to that the sensation, thrill and excitement that comes from the shedding of clothing with your partner in an open environment, in public if you will, going totally au-naturel without the restrictions of society. Nudism or naturism is a cultural and political movement practising, advocating and defending social nudity in private and in public. The naturist philosophy has several sources, many of which can be traced back to early 20th century health and fitness philosophies in Germany, though the concepts of returning to nature and creating equality are also cited as inspiration.

When bikinis and swimsuits fall to the sand at nude beaches in Costa Rica, sunglasses start steaming up. The first nude beach that comes to mind is Manuel Antonio. If you go to the public beach and walk north, you will find an area where women often go sans top, though full nudity is rare. Of course, this is also known locally as a gay beach Playa de Playos , something to keep in mind before dropping your swim trunks in full view of several dozen people and who the heck knows how many monkeys, sloths and stray coatimundis.
Are there any? We're going to be in Tamarindo for a week, so any near there would be great. If not, we will be traveling the country for a week also and would love to hear of a good safe spot to sunbathe au naturel I don't believe that are any beaches that have been deemed au naturel in the Tamarindo area. There are, however certain beaches that are rather remote. One that comes to mind is the far end of Playa Langosta across the estuary and up about a mile. I am pretty sure that no one would bother you, but you would be rather isolated as there are none of the conveniences of town nearby. Some people do it all the time in beaches like Punta Uva
