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.

In Oaxaca, Mexico, the Day of the Dead is “the biggest party all year,” according to Carolyn Kallenborn, an associate professor of design studies at UW-Madison.
“It’s bigger than Christmas. Easter week may come close, but most people talk about Day of the Dead,” she said. “And it’s a happy time.”
Now thanks to Kallenborn, there will be a celebration in Madison, too, on Nov. 1 — the traditional date of Day of the Dead celebrations across Latin America.
Kallenborn’s exhibition, “La luz y sombra” (“Light and Shadow”) is currently on display at the Edgewood College Gallery. The show is based on Kallenborn’s many visits to Oaxaca, where she conducts research and became fascinated with the festive — not maudlin — way that residents remember the departed.
The celebration happens once a year, featuring joyous, raucous music, plenty of food and arms full of flowers.
As a friend from Oaxaca told her: “For some reason the Powerful One allows our departed loved ones to come back for a day to visit. So we throw them a party.”
Kallenborn documents some of the annual rituals and festivities in her 50-minute art film “The Life of the Dead,” to be shown at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Nov. 1 in the Edgewood College art and theater building known as The Stream.
The screening is part of a larger “Day of the Dead Festival” running from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. that evening at The Stream. Free and open to the public, the celebration will include music by the UW World Percussion Ensemble, Forward Marching Band and DJ Ken Horn, along with larger-than-life puppets and dancers from DanzTrad performing in traditional skeleton makeup.
A Day of the Dead Candlelight Procession starting at 8 p.m. will wend its way across the Edgewood College campus.
Kallenborn’s exhibition also paved the way for “Remembrance and Celebration,” a community altar project with more than 175 personal altars made by local artists, schoolchildren, college students and others that are displayed throughout the atrium of The Stream.
The Edgewood College Gallery initially built 100 wooden boxes to hand out for the project, but those went so quickly that it quickly had to build 75 more, said gallery director David Wells.
The completed altars “are still coming in and we’re adding them to the exhibition,” he said. “It seems to have hit a real nerve in the community. It’s amazing — both in the diversity of styles and the subjects.”
Many altar boxes are lovingly arranged with photos, memorabilia or artworks that evoke a departed loved one. Others are dedicated to victims of war or violence. Still others are nods to the mysterious nature of death.
The project “is really allowing people to be artists even if they don’t think of themselves as artists,” said Wells. “It’s a really rich exhibit in terms of what people have made.”

Passport and Visa Requirements

One of the most important things to do before you travel abroad is to check your destination's passport and visa requirements. Every country has different rules, and it can take several weeks or months to obtain the proper documentation, so advance planning is crucial.
First rule of thumb: Having a passport is not always enough. Many countries require that your passport be valid for up to six months beyond the end date of your vacation. For example, if your Singapore vacation ends in September, your passport must be valid until March of the following year. Be sure to check the U.S. Department of State's website for detailed country-specific information about your destination's passport requirements.
Some countries will not admit you unless your passport has a very specific number of blank visa pages at the end. If your itinerary includes multiple nations, make sure to check the blank-page requirements—either one blank page or two—for each country. If you need to add extra pages to your passport before your trip, follow these instructions and mail in the necessary fee with a completed form. But keep in mind that it takes approximately four to six weeks for applications to be processed (check here for updates on routine and expedited application-processing times).
After making sure your passport is up to snuff, find out whether your destination requires a visa in order to gain entry. The State Department's website allows you to search by country for your destination's entry requirements. You can also check the country's U.S. embassy website for detailed information about entry and exit requirements for American visitors. While some countries do not require a visa at all, others have a more difficult process that involves obtaining a visa in person from your nearest consulate.

Weather

Before you book your trip, it's a good idea to check the weather in your destination to help determine which times of year are best for visiting. Once you book, the weather will determine the clothes you pack, the excursions you plan, and whether you should expect transportation delays.
Travel seasons are mostly determined by weather, and if you decide to take a peak-season vacation, you'll have to contend with other visitors who had the same idea. But the benefits of high-season travel—gorgeous weather, long days, and the resultant high spirits—can outweigh both the hoards and the high prices. But don't discount off-season vacations, either: A low-season trip can deliverunexpected benefits.
In the week or so before your trip, be sure to check the weather in your destination and stay abreast of any developing storms or adverse conditions. No matter how much you want to pack that cute new tank top, if the forecast says 50 degrees, it's time to put it back in the closet. And knowing what kind of weather is brewing will help determine how early you should arrive at the airport for your flight and whether to expect any train or bus delays once you land.

Seasonal Closings, Festivals, and Holidays

Seasonal Closings, Festivals, and Holidays

Accidentally booked a trip with your grandma to Brazil, only to be greeted by half-naked ladies and drunken revelers? You should have checked this year's Carnival dates. Didn't realize that much of Italy shuts down over the Easter holiday? It's important to know about seasonal closings, holidays, and festivals in your destination before you book your trip.
In some places, restaurants and tourist sites operate on shorter schedules or even close completely during the winter months (and also in August, due to workers' vacations). Be sure to do your research before booking your travel or risk being met with a ghost town upon arrival.
And while it can be great fun to partake in holiday celebrations and festivals in a different country, you should expect the logistics of travel to be a bit more difficult, the crowds to be bigger, and many local businesses to be closed. So before you set the dates for your spring trip to Italy, decide whether seeing Florence's Easter Sunday Scoppio del Carro ("Explosion of the Cart") celebration—involving a wooden cart, fireworks, and a blazing mechanical-dove rocket—is worth the public-holiday hassle.
