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.

Which days do I need to travel to get the lowest airfares?

Which Days Do I Need to Travel to Get the Cheapest Flights?

 Dear Jessica,

Which days do I need to travel to get the lowest airfares?

Dear K.L.,
You've probably heard the suggestion to travel midweek or off-peak to get the cheapest flights. While off-peak travel varies by destination, the other half of the equation—flying midweek—is more set in stone.
On most flights, off-peak means midweek. For flights within the U.S., midweek can be as broad as Mondays through Thursdays and as specific as just Tuesdays and Wednesdays. On international routes, particularly flights to and from Europe, midweek usually means Mondays through Wednesdays.
While flying midweek is often your best bet for finding low fares, if you must travel on weekends, Saturday is typically the least-expensive weekend option. Fridays and Sundays are busy travel days, but Saturdays sometimes see a lull, depending on the route.
When research flights on a specific airfare sale, be sure to read the fine print. The sale restrictions will often specify which days the lowest fares are available. If you're flexible, try several different departure and return dates before booking. Sometimes traveling even one or two days before or after your ideal date can save you money.
And remember, there are other factors to consider in getting a good price, too. Be sure to book in advance (at least seven, 14, or 21 days ahead unless you're counting on finding a low last-minute fare) and include a Saturday-night stay in your itinerary.
