Cenote Azul is nothing less than an amazing body of water — azure, clear water that goes immediately into abyss, right off the edge of its shore. Each cenote is different, but this one is very special. Nowhere else did swimming feel so much like flying, with the boundary between air and water seemingly imaginary…. I had to cancel and postpone my trip a couple of times, but a year ago I finally went there and indeed found a good bunch of local naturists. There is a couple of groups in Quito, with weekly gatherings at a pool with sauna and less frequent outings to thermal pools outside the city.
Naturism , or nudism , is a cultural and political movement practicing, advocating, and defending personal and social nudity , most but not all of which takes place on private property. The term may also refer to a lifestyle based on personal, family, or social nudity. It may be practiced individually, within a family, socially, or in public. Additionally, there is also militant naturism, including campaigning, and extreme naturism is sometimes considered a separate category. Several other terms "social nudity", " public nudity ", " skinny dipping ", "sunning", and "clothes-free" have been proposed as alternative terms for naturism, but none has found the same widespread public acceptance as the older terms "naturism" and in much of the United States "nudism".
