MissyI Offline
I raised this on the AC board as well:

Hi all, a search under "topless" revealed little useable info. Usually this was because the person asking the question was either looking for a "topless beach", as in a place with a sign that said "you can take your top off here" or they were really looking for a "nude beach". So, let me try to phrase the question(s) better:

1. If I go to the XYZ Resort, somewhere in San Pedro, sit down on the beach and take my top off, will I be breaking any laws (local, state or national)? Will there be other women who are sunning topless? If so, a few or more than that? Are others at the resort beach likely to take offense, or have they seen this before?

2. Would a resort in Placencia be any different?

3. We're also considering a yacht charter for part of our stay. Is it safe to assume that out on the boat nobody would care if I went topless?

Not trying to start a discussion of politics/morals/God knows what else here. Just looking for the facts. Thanks!

MissyI: Is it against a law. No. Will you find other topless sunbathers. Not a lot.

I just returned from AC and at the resort I stayed at someone off the cruise line came to the resort as part of a tour. Her top goes off and we all frowned. No one told her to put her top back on but it was frowned upon. Keep in mind that there are many children walking around trying to sell necklaces and bracelets, there are children playing on the beaches and there are many young men walking along the beach.

AC is a modest town. You will rarely seeing any of the local young women or older women in bathing suits, let alone going topless.

I would say if you're coming to AC, respect the culture and the people that live there.

My opinion. Keep your top on unless you are in a secluded area.

If that's the Missy I know, then I approve of this message. laugh

However, despite what that "letch" missing-guy might be trying to promote wink I can tell you, it's rare that nudity in any form is acceptable on AC.

The people there are so incredibly kind-hearted that you might not hear a complaint, but it does offend their sensibilities.

They'll tolerate it, for the most part, but it's not customary. Don't believe what you might read in Jimmy Buffett's latest work.

Don't - and that's not from a moral point of view. It's just the way it is.
