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.

Zipolite Is Clean: Beach warnings issued in time for vacations Six out of 264 beaches deemed safe for swimming

Beach warnings issued in time for vacations

Six out of 264 beaches deemed safe for swimming

  23  0
It is Semana Santa in Mexico, Holy Week in English, a religious holiday in which more people appear to go to the beach than to church.
And while few would doubt that churches are generally safe, the same cannot always be said of beaches.
However, the federal health agency Cofepris has come out with figures to allay any worries about the quality of the water at 97.7% of Mexico’s 264 swimming beaches.
In fact, just six beaches were found to be unsafe for swimming after testing was carried out in early March in preparation for the Easter vacation season. Two are in Guerrero and four in Campeche.
Zihuatanejo’s beach La Principal, which last year earned the designation “unfit” for swimming, does so again this year after testing revealed enterococcus fecal bacteria counts of 870 per 100 milliliters of water, exceeding the limit by 670.
In Acapulco, where visitors might wonder more about security rather than health issues, Tlacopanocha is the beach to avoid for its polluted water, which was measured at 249 per 100 ml.
The good news for Acapulco — which needs all it can get — is that three other beaches — Caletilla, Caleta and Hornos — all recorded measurements of 43 or less. Another safe choice would be Playa Icacos, which has been awarded the international Blue Flag certification.
The four offending beaches in Campeche are Zacatal with 677 per 100, Manigua with 474, Norte I with 856 and Norte II with 890.
Swimmers who enter waters with high bacteria counts risk gastrointestinal, respiratory and skin issues, warned Rocío Alatorre of Cofepris.
The agency’s Clean Beaches Program conducted 2,020 tests of 264 beaches in 63 tourist destinations during the lead-up to Semana Santa, said Alatorre, using four to six water samples from each beach.
He observed that Acapulco’s numbers have improved, which he said can be attributed to infrastructure improvements such as sewage treatment, improved drainage and better garbage collection.
Alatorre said one issue causing high pollution levels in Campeche could be ships discharging sewage.
Eleven beaches in Mexico enjoy certification by Blue Flag, which is managed by an international non-profit organization. Its certification has stricter standards than Mexico’s: enterococcus bacteria counts must not exceed 100 per 100 ml of water.

Great place for cocktails and spotting nudists
Zipolite is a 15 minute collectivo ride up the coast from San Agonstinillo and is a more established hippy community.
It is famous for nude bathing, which is particularly prevalent at the end of the beach closest to Mazunte.

The beach

Nestled behind a set of rocks which separates the main beach from a little cove is El Alquimista, a beautiful hotel, restaurant and bar.

With tables and beach loungers on the beach, this is a great spot to soak up the sun or hide under an umbrella while watching the locals strut their stuff.

El Alquimista, cocktails, alcohol free, beach, nudity
Heaven and Hell cocktails...

It's debateable whether seeing the locals in the all-together will increase your appetite or convince you to hit the cocktails harder but they offer both alcoholic and non-alcoholic versions...

Enjoying the beach

The food here is a little more expensive than the norm but it is all served in a friendly and proffessional way and is delicious.

There is a hotel out the back which I can't comment on too much, but it looks particularly plush and exciting.

Semana Santa in Mexico: Watch a Reenactment of the Crucifixion of Christ MAR 29 Posted by TC

Semana Santa in Mexico: Watch a Reenactment of the Crucifixion of Christ

It’s Semana Santa (Holy Week) here in Mexico, the week before Easter, and lots of people have the week off work.
You can travel to the beach and face bigger crowds, traffic-choked highways, and inflated prices at hotels.
You can take a trip to one of Mexico’s famous magic towns – well-preserved colonial beauties, many of which are in the center of the country within easy reach of Mexico City, such as Taxco or Malinalco, or a larger colonial city: Queretaro, Puebla, Guanajato, and so many more.
(Or, if you are like me, you can stay home and catch up on WAY too much work.)
However, you don’t have to go far to have a great experience during Semana Santa. Thursday is jueves santo – holy Thursday – and in small towns and city neighborhoods all over Mexico, you can see a local teenager dress up as Jesus, carry a cross through town while getting whipped by his friends, and get crucified up on a hill.
I wrote all about it in my article Witness A Crucifixion in Mexico, which won 3rd place in Transition Abroad’s narrative writing contest last year.
Please read the article here, and check out some more pictures below.
Thanks for visiting!

Weather blamed for 14 deaths in 2 states

Most of the victims drowned in floodwaters in Veracruz

  6  0
Heavy rains, strong winds and hail have been blamed in the deaths of 14 people in Veracruz and Oaxaca since Thursday, where rivers have overflowed their banks, power has been cut and highways blocked due to landslides.
Eight of the deaths were in Veracruz, where most of the victims were swept away by flood waters in the municipalities of Atzalan, Medellín and Yanga. In one case the occupants of a taxi drowned after the vehicle was carried away by a strong current.
In Oaxaca, a helicopter owned by Teléfonos de México crashed, killing four people, and two others died after being struck by lightning in the Zimatlán district.
The Telmex helicopter was working in Santa María Chilchotla near the Puebla border when the pilot lost visibility and struck a hillside.
Civil Protection authorities say 414 homes have been damaged in 21 neighborhoods of Veracruz. Communication with nine communities has been severed and two bridges are out in Yanga and in Platón Sánchez.
Electrical service was lost in many communities, and drainage systems were not functioning due to chunks of ice formed by compacted hail.
At least 80 people are being housed in shelters in three communities.
The storm, brought on by Cold Front #43, also delivered high winds with gusts up to 49 km/h

The 2 Cheapest Days of the Week to Fly March 26, 2015 4:31 pm by Ed Perkins

The 2 Cheapest Days of the Week to Fly
Be a little flexible with your flight itinerary and you could save some cash; that's because some days are cheaper for flying than others. There are two specific days that are cheapest for air passengers. Those days are likely to yield the best rates for departures and arrivals. But remember: This isn't an exact science.
The universal consensus seems to be that airfares tend to be lowest for flights that depart on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. That's what George Hobica of our sister site Airfarewatchdog says, along with CheapAir. Some sources, including Fodor's, add Thursday, and others, including our own Josh Roberts and FareCompare, add Saturday.
Expedia's 2015 Travel Trends White Paper posts the most comprehensive analysis of the "when to fly" question. Expedia concludes that, for long-haul flights, leaving on Thursday and returning on Monday costs around 20 percent less than leaving on Friday and returning on Saturday. The lowest in-and-out combinations tend to include outbound flights on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday with return flights on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, or Thursday. For short-haul trips, Expedia's lowest-fare groupings are Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday both ways.
Does time of day matter? Oddly enough, you find very little data on this question. Overall, afternoons are the "rush hour" for flying, so you find fewer good airfares on afternoon flights. On some short-haul routes, early mornings are also rush hour, as business travelers start their quick in-and-out single-day trips. Still, others say the dinner hour is a good time to fly.
On domestic routes, fares for overnight red-eye flights are often lower than for daytime flights—but you have to put up with the miseries of sitting up all night in a tiny economy seat.
