Bummer: A Mexican Nudist Paradise Is Great For Business But Bad For COVID

Why can’t the nudists just stay 6 feet apart? This is part of the “things I didn’t expect to read on Yahoo News but should have” experience

Nudist Mexican Paradise Zipolite Is Great Business for Tourism, but Bad For COVID

What to do when winter hits your country and COVID pandemic restrictions forces you to stay home? The right answer should be stay home, but thousands of U.S. and Canadian tourists flocked to Mexico’s nudist beach of Zipolite to leave something more than their dollars behind.

Zipolite, on the Pacific coast, has along with Tulum and Cancun become one of the most popular tourist destinations even though Mexico has now the third highest COVID mortality rate in the world.

During the first days of 2021, Zipolite welcomed thousands of foreign tourists looking to escape strict pandemic measures in their countries.

“We were just dealing with too much. Lockdown affected us a lot, and specially my daughter because we live in a small apartment, with no possibilities of going out somewhere. I feel we really needed to go out,” said George Barrera, a 35-year-old Texan who traveled with his family to Zipolite during the last days of January.

Zipolite sits in the San Pedro Pochutla municipality in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca.

If people want to take the risk, that’s their choice, is it not? Kinda icked out at that guy flying to a nudist area with his daughter, but, really, people are allowed to go nude, most of them don’t.

Jane Cusak, 40, from Toronto, Canada, said she traveled with her dog expecting some restrictions on her arrival in Zipolite, but was surprised how relaxed it was.

“I was planning for Tulum, but read online that it’s now packed of tourists so I decided Zipolite, looking to get away from the city and enjoy a tranquil beach, not too crowded. I really was amazed at how relaxed the pandemic measures are down here”, she said.

All we need is keep your distance, wash your hand, don’t touch your face.

During the last days of January, Oaxaca reached an all-time high record of infections with more than 22,000 cases in a single day, according to the Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering (JHU CSSE).

But, that was not correlated with nudists going to the beach.

“If you still doubt on how safe Zipolite is during the pandemic, let me tell you, you have nothing to worry about, our beach is such a safe place that our deputy health minister, Hugo Lopez-Gatell Ramirez enjoyed it,” stated the publication shared by Pineda.

Zipolite or “the new Tulum” as some call it, is a sunny Mexican paradise worth waiting for, to enjoy naked and maskless once things finally get better.

As Coronado puts it: “Zipolite will be here forever, the virus won’t.”

And the nudism probably helps. The big question is, why do news outlets expect free citizens to put up with the draconian, authoritarian dictates from mostly leftist government officials which didn’t work, really didn’t make a difference?

Also, I thought an article about nudist beaches in the time of COVID would be a bit more fun. Oh, well.

    Since double masking is s’posed to be better than single masking, this young lady decided that quadruple masking would be even better!

    Dana still think Covid is fake news ?
    Or that the 1/2 million dead are fake numbers ?
