A little about Playa Zipolite, The Beach of the Dead . . .

Playa Zipolite, Oaxaca, Southern Mexico, on the Pacific Ocean. A little bit about my favorite little get-away on this small world of ours.

Zipolite, a sweaty 30-minute walk west from Puerto Angel, brings you to Playa Zipolite and another world. The feeling here is 1970's - Led Zep, Marley, and scruffy gringos.

A long, long time ago, Zipolite beach was usually visited by the Zapotecans...who made it a magical place. They came to visit Zipolite to meditate, or just to rest.

Recently, this beach has begun to receive day-trippers from Puerto Angel and Puerto Escondido, giving it a more TOURISTY feel than before.

Most people come here for the novelty of the nude beach, yoga, turtles, seafood, surf, meditation, vegetarians, discos, party, to get burnt by the sun, or to see how long they can stretch their skinny budget.

I post WWW Oaxaca, Mexico, Zipolite and areas nearby information. Also general budget, backpacker, surfer, off the beaten path, Mexico and beyond, information.

REMEMBER: Everyone is welcome at Zipolite.

# DidYouKnow ZIPOLITE

ZIPOLITE
The beach, like the people, called "Zipolite" There are many versions about the origin of the name and the stronger in Zapotec means "beach of the dead".
The name comes from the legend that the Zapotecs buried their dead here, bringing them from tens and even hundreds of kilometers away.
Other studies have not yet said means certificates instead of snails. The beach sand is fine and white, describing a crescent along its entire length.
The surf is medium to strong in all seasons, prevailing waves and strong underwater currents in the rainy season. One of the charms of the beach at Zipolite is your tolerance for nudity.
Before nudism is limited to both ends of the beach, Love in the East and another small beach to the west (Alchemist / Shambala side).

My Spanish Notes ¿De tela o chócolo?

My Spanish Notes


Posted: 24 Jun 2015 05:50 PM PDT
In this post I'm going to continue sharing my Spanish languages adventures in Medellín, Colombia.  If you missed the first installment, no worries, you can read it here:  Holo bebé, ¿qué más pues?

One of the first things I tend to do when I get off the plane is exchange money and grab a bite to eat.  Exchanging money is usually a pretty straight-forward transaction.  I'll have to blog about it so that when you have to do it completely in Spanish for the first time you won't feel lost.  In the meantime, you can find plenty of helpful phrases for changing money and everything travel related in general in my favorite Spanish Phrasebook for android, called My Spanish Phrasebook.  Alright, I digress, let's get to it.

In México I've had to show a passport to exchange money on occasion, but this time I had to let them take a huella, or finger print of my dedo índice (index finger).  Not a big deal, it just took me by surprise.  By the way, if you want to know what the other fingers are called, then read my post Pulgar Arriba

So after getting some Colombian Pesos in my pocket (I'll show you what those look like in a later post) checking into the hotel was up next.  I won't go into detail about that, you can read my post ¿A qué hora es la hora de entrada? to learn how to check into a hotel.  After that it was time to get to one of my favorite past times, eating.

So I headed downtown and came across a food stand selling arepas de chócolo.  


I didn't know what chócolo was, and it didn't look like any arepa I had ever seen, but it did look tasty, so I ordered one.  And it turned tenía razón (I was right), it was delicious!   

What is chócolo you ask?  Nothing but good old-fashioned maíz.


Now that we know what chócolo is, we can figure what an arepa de chócolo is.  It's what we might call sweet corn cake.  


You may have noticed the above photo is missing that white triangular stuff that was on top of arepas in the first picture.  And if you're wondering what that was, it's queso cuajado.  I'm not a cheese guy, so if it isn't a slice of Kraft American cheese I can't help you, but the definition of queso cuajado is curd cheese. 



The combination of an arepa and queso cuajado is something you have to try.  I wasn't sure if I was going to like it, but I fell in love with it. 

Here's a little chócolo humor for you if you want a good laugh and a have just a little over a minute to spare. Click here to watch it in Youtube if you can't see the link.


OK, now that you've had a chance to put those Spanish ears to work let's keep going.

There's actually more than one type of arepa served in Medellín.  The other one is called an arepa tela.  I have to admit, I didn't like these quite as much, but they weren't bad.


While Medellín has a variety of foods, the most famous dish you have to try is the Bandeja Paisa.


As you can see by the photo, that's quite a bit of food.  Arroz, frijoles, chicharron, huevo, aguacate, carne and plátanos maduros.  Bandeja Paisa is a hearty meal for sure. 

I think that's going to wrap this post up.  Stayed tune for the next one where I'll share a little more Colombian Spanish and tell you about a quaint little place called Pueblito Paisa and more.

¡Hasta la próxima!

Zipolite: um vilarejo muito alto astral #1099656 por Claudinha - Trips Incríveis 21 Jun 2015

Sou uma devoradora de revistas, blogs, tudo que fale sobre viagem. Sempre que vou viajar, faço uma busca nos meus blogs preferidos e tento encontrar algum que fale algo a mais sobre o meu destino. Foi assim que fiquei sabendo de Zipolite, uns 2 meses antes de eu partir em viagem ao México. A blogueira Adriana Setti, do Achados, estava lá e publicou sobre esse paraíso.

Eu curto desde as maiores cidades do mundo até cidadezinhas com poucos habitantes. Montanha com neve ou praia. Mas meu marido é apaixonado por vilarejos, do tipo quanto mais rústico melhor. Quando lemos de Zipolite, ele não teve dúvidas quanto a incluí-la em nosso roteiro.

Ficamos num dos melhores hotéis do lugar, de frente para a praia por incríveis U$ 20, sem café da manhã. Os outros eram muito mais baratos, mas roots demais. E com esse valor, vale a pena ficar em um bom hotel. O que não havia em nenhum hotel do local era água quente no banho. Mas com o calor que fazia lá, dava até para entender o porquê.

Aqui foi o tipo de lugar para tirar férias das férias. Não precisamos do carro para nada. Saímos pela manhã, caminhamos, banhos de mar, almoçamos por preços baixíssimos na beira da praia, deitamos na rede do próprio restaurante até a leseira passar...mais banhos de mar e caminhadas até o sol se pôr, majestoso no horizonte.

Uma curiosidade: há alguns nudistas. E eles levam a sério isso. Passam o dia inteiro peladões, tomam banho de mar, deitam na areia, tudo pelado. Tinha um vizinho do hotel que só colocou roupa no dia de ir embora. A maioria dos pelados são homens e coroas. Nem adianta se empolgar kkkk.

Mas a melhor parte foi dormir com o barulhinho do mar...que delícia. E acordar antes mesmo do sol nascer no dia seguinte, e vê-lo surgir tomando um banho de mar. Começar o dia assim é tudo de bom!!!

Trips by Incredible 
tripsincriveis.com I am a devouring magazines, blogs, all talk about travel. Whenever I travel, I do a search on my favorite blogs and try to find some that say something more about my destination. That was how I learned about Zipolite, some two months before I left on a trip to Mexico. The blogger Adriana Setti, the findings, was there and published on this paradise. I enjoy from the world's largest cities to small towns with few inhabitants. Mountain with snow or beach. But my husband is in love with villages, type the more rustic better. When we read of Zipolite, he had no doubt as to include it in our roadmap. We are one of the best hotels of the place, facing the beach for incredible $ 20 without breakfast. The others were much cheaper, but too roots. And with this value, it is worth staying in a good hotel. What there was no hotel in the place was hot water in the bath. But with the heat that was there, he gave up to understand why. Here was the kind of place to take a vacation from vacation. We do not need the car for nothing. We left in the morning, walk, bathing, lunch for rock bottom prices on the beach, lay in the own restaurant network to leseira spend ... more bathing and hiking up the sun goes down, majestic on the horizon. A curiosity : a few nudists. And they take it seriously. They spend the whole day peladões, take a swim, lay in the sand, all naked. Hotel had a neighbor who only put clothes on leaving. Most are naked men and crowns. Do not even get excited kkkk. But the best part was sleeping with little noise of the sea ... that delight. And wake up before sunrise the next day and see it emerge taking a swim. Starting the day so it's all good !!!
