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.

Where to Travel for Thanksgiving This Year

http://www.gayapolis.com/news/artdisplay-travel.php?artid=31360

Where to Travel for Thanksgiving This Year
If there's one responsible thing you do over Labor Day weekend, let it be solidifying your Thanksgiving plans. We know it's difficult to think ahead to the next big holiday while you're still working on taking advantage of the current one, but we hear from our friends at Hipmunk that airfare is expected to rise significantly after the holiday. If you don't already have a destination in mind, consider some of our favorites for Thanksgiving.

Charleston, SC

Get ready for some Southern charm in Charleston, best known for its plantation homes and haunted tours. Its historical architecture creates a cozy atmosphere, and the culinary scene is foodie-approved. Plus, you'll find one of the ShermansTravel staff's favorite under-rated beach two hours north, and sleepy Hilton Head two hours south, just in case you need a little more seclusion. While hotel rates in town easily reach $400 per night on busy weekends, you can easily find options in the $200-$300 range over Thanksgiving. Rooms at King Charles Inn, a historic AAA three-diamond property, for example, currently start at $212. For East Coasters, these prices make the moderate airfare worth it -- we found round-trip flights from NYC from $481 leaving Wednesday and returning Sunday on United, and from $431 leaving Wednesday and returning Saturday on JetBlue.

Oaxaca, Mexico

For an international getaway, this southern Mexico destination is fairly affordable to reach from both coasts as well as the Midwest. For a Wednesday to Sunday trip, roundtrip fares start from $450 from Chicago, $656 from New York, and $612 from San Diego, all on Aeromexico. November is somewhat of a sweet spot here, just after the summer rains have ended but before the cold descends -- and you know you can plan for some beach time when Puerto Escondido holds its big surf competition mid-month. The laid-back beach town is also home to well-priced lodging, with rates running from under $100 per night for more simplistic inns to $200 per night for fancier boutiques. In nearby Huatulco, you'll find the same slow pace, with plenty of wildlife and gorgeous churches to admire. Whichever you choose, you'll be able to indulge in mole and mezcal without the crowds of Oaxaca's flashier neighbors.

NEWPORT BEACH, CA (Surfline.com/CNN) — Surf’s up along the California coastline as Hurricane Marie makes its way through the Pacific Ocean.
People stood on the shoreline in Newport Beach to watch the massive waves.
Waves could swell to 30-feet by later Wednesday.
The National Weather Service warned swimmers and surfers that Southern California beaches will have large waves and rip currents.

Description

My name is Alejandro and I am from Mexico City. I always wanted to have my own little diving school and one year ago I came to Mazunte to open my dive school and shop. I am very happy here, because the life here is different and we can do what we really like. Every day when we go down we can find different sealife, new species and it is always an adventure. The coast of Oaxaca is still very virgin and for that there is a lot to see and to explore. The wildlife is very active here. We are also the only dive school in the whole region (zipolite, puerto angel, san agustinillo and mazunte).

Help

We are looking for a person who loves the sea and its wildlife and who is openminded and likes working with people. You don't need any experience but it would be perfect if you are interested in diving or if you want to learn it. 
The idea is that our volunteer can help us in the diveshop, selling tours and equipment and also if you speak various languages you could help us translating some of the tours. 
If you have a divers license you can also help with the diving. 
We could also need a person who likes onlinemarketing and can help us to spread the word of our school.

Languages spoken

Spanish, a bit of English

Accommodation

I offer a private room with private bathroom and food. ( 2 meals a day). And there is the opportunity to earn commissions for selling our tours. 
If you want to make a diving course with me I offer you a discount and you will have an exellent teacher. :)

What else ...

Next to diving all kind of watersports are very popular here. There is surfing, bodyboarding, boogy boarding, snorkelling, fishing tours, kayaks etc. There is whale season from October to March and you can make a tour with a local fisher man for 200 pesos mexicanos (16$). 
In Mazunte you will find a turtle conservation center, you can visit La Ventanilla, where you will see wild crocodiles. 
You can walk to Punta Cometa, which is a special place with a lot of energy.
