Playa Sonrisa Under New Ownership

One of Xcalak’s more unique accommodations, clothing-optional Playa Sonrisa, now has new ownership—and there are big plans for enhancing the already popular resort.

As the former owners, Murph & Cindy, head off into retirement, Playa Sonrisa (where all you need is your smile) will continue to serve the naturist community. But carrying on Playa Sonrisa’s legacy isn’t the only thing the new owners (Blaney & Steve) have in mind. Get ready for some exciting changes on the horizon.

Tiki Teal’s Bar & Grill – There’s a new name and some new services for the restaurant at Plays Sonrisa. The restaurant offers guests breakfast and lunch daily and dinner on select nights. The biggest change is that the restaurant will be open to the public for live music from 5-10 p.m. on select Saturdays.
