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.

10 Tips from a Seasoned Solo Traveler

I’ve been traveling in different parts of the world for many years now, and I’ve made all kinds of mistakes: overpacking, underpacking, getting lost, losing my ATM card and not having a backup, arriving at a new airport at night with no information, getting overcharged in taxis, not speaking the language, eating bad food… you name it.
In my new article on Transitions Abroad, 10 Tips from a Seasoned Solo Traveler, I share my best tips from my best trips in Latin America, Europe and Asia. Here are more photos from places I mention in the story:
