I was there March break and topless was not very common at all. The beach is very large and there is beach beyond the hotel that was deserted.

We have seen gals on the beach topless. Never at the pool. Just not cool.

You see some, not a lot. Just a reminder, all beaches in Mexico are public ans topless sunbathing on Mexican beaches is illegal. However, EPM is very secluded, so it is not really an issue

"topless sunbathing on Mexican beaches is illegal."

This old chestnut (no pun intended) keeps coming up but no-one has ever been able to cite a statute or regulation which specifically prohibits topless sunbathing. There is some sort of public indecency law on the books and likely that's the one you'd be prosecuted under if you chose to walk through a busy market naked but to my knowledge, nowhere does it actually state that "thou shall not sunbathe topless". And even if there is such a statute, it sure as heck isn't enforced on the beaches of Mexico.

We have seen topless sunbathing on the beach at EPM and all our trips there and from the number of questions you see about privacy on the RTT's a lot of people want to take more than their top off

I have also seen it around some of the smaller pools areas and the swim ups

No big deal really

My wife always goes topless on holiday but didn't at EPM as she never saw anyone else doing it. If you don't care though then you are definitely allowed.

In the 2 years we have been there we have only seen a few people on the beach go topless. Never in the pools though.

I agree that the atmosphere is so laid back, noboby seems to mind if people do or don't.

I think I'd only feel comfortable doing it on the EPM beach provided that I'm not the only one. If no one else is doing it, that would not necessarily stop me but I would probably head up the beach a little ways. No way would I do it at the pool--it just seems to draw too much attention!
