    Best place to dip your toe in

    My wife and I are looking to book our first vacation to a clothing optional resort and have many questions we were hoping for some input on. To start off we are in our late 30's and were looking for a place with a similar age range. We aren't hard partiers but we certainly don't just lay around either. We are not in the life style and at this point would prefer a place that is more low key in that department. The beach and swimming is important to her, a good bar and resort staff are my priorities. Obviously any place we go will have a diverse crowd of fun people and we have read the reviews and threads on this forum about different resorts. We are just hoping for some suggestions on a place to dip our toes into the clothing optional vacations. Thank you in advance for any and all suggestions.

    I would try Hedo. There is a huge myth about Hedo that it is this crazy, crazy place. It is true, but it just revolves around a small part of the whole resort, the north side (nude, hot-tub area). The rest of the resort is just a nudist-clothing optional resort. We have friends who are nudists and would never go to Hedo. They have this mis-perception of it. It simply is not true. If the "sexual atmosphere" is not your thing, stick to the middle or south side of the resort and you won't see anything. You can stay clothed all week, hangout at the beach and prude bar, go sailing, tennis, scuba, walk the beach to Negril and make it vanilla as you want. Once you feel more relaxed, (third day in) and adventurous, head up to the north side and peak.

    As for this nudist resort, the place is huge. The biggest clothing-optional place we have been too. It is about 4X bigger than Desire. Only about 20% is considered the "wild" side. The rest is just a relaxing, fun place to go.

    As for the age group, we always go with the Fluffs in the winter. We have a sense that the younger crowds go during the fall, summer?????? Possibly look at groups to find a younger crowd.

    If you are looking for a whole resort that is clothing optional, (with the exception of the nude side) we would agree with Cahhhoo. There is nowhere else like Hedo. As mild or as wild as you want to be. If swimming and the beach are the must have deal breaker, try Couples Negril. The beach is pristine, and from your post, it has everything you mentioned, however there is only a smaller area which is "nude mandatory, couples only" and the beach area has a lot of vanilla foot traffic. You can always do a day or night pass to Hedo to see if it is for you, but I think you will wish you booked there once you experience it. Lots of options at Hedo due to its size, vibe, and philosophy. Are there fancier newer resorts? Sure. There is give and take in terms of amenities. It all depends on your priorities. We go to have fun, be naked on a great beach, and dress up for theme nights. For us Hedonism fits the bill perfectly. You can PM us with any questions. Good Luck !

    One thing I like about Hedo that sets it FAR APART from all others(as far as I know) is the fact that there are groups that go at specified times of the year.What this means is that if you pick a group and stay with it then you get to meet other people from all over the world who return on schedule to Hedo year after year.So if you like the people you meet you get to spend your adult vacation around people you like and know and it is like having a family reunion only you got to pick your family this time.LOL!

    Thank you all very much for the responses. I will definitely look into both places more thoroughly. I guess I was under the same misconception about Hedo. I didn't realize there are less Life style intensive parts of that resorts.

    I also want to add, it is not the place that makes it crazy, it is the people that go. We have been to Hedo where it has been so quiet and boring, you think you were at church. That being said, do some research and plan your trip (if choosing Hedo) with a time when a large group is going. You don't necessarily need to book with the group, but choose the same visiting dates. If the group is outgoing, they will definitely make it livelier. This is how we bumped into the Fluffs many years ago. They did a take over and our vacation overlapped and we were like "wholly jeez....." We are booking with them next year!!!!"

    Someone here, I think from CA, sponsors a young lifestyle week a few times a year (under 40)? Kitten? I would look into piggy-backing during that week. The group will mostly stay on the north-side.

    P.S, we are not life-stylists either. We just love the atmosphere (mild to wild) Hedo offers. When we burnout mid-week and want quietness, we hangout on the southern side for downtime.
