Zipolite is one of the few clothing optional beaches in Mexico. As a naturist destination, it is not the greatest place to visit. It's a public beach, so anyone can walk on, and almost no one goes fully nude. I'd say 20% of the women go topless. Men, of course, go topless but that's to be expected. If you do want to go nude, it will all depend on how comfortable you are in your own skin around textile people. I did go nude but I would definitely prefer a place where being naked was more common.
As a destination, my wife and I loved Zipolite. She actually did go topless, which is rare for her in public. As a vacation, I highly recommend it if you can speak some Spanish. Aside form the beach, there isn't much else. They have decent restaurants, mostly Italian or Mexican, and some touristy shops. Beware that amenities can be sparse: There is no ATM in town and our bungalow did not have hot water. If basic living isn't your cup of tea, I don't recommend it. My wife and I see basic living as a good thing: Hopefully, it will keep Northamericans from turning Zipolite into another Cancun.
