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.

Hurricane warning for Guerrero, Michoacán

The Category 1 hurricane was 125 km south-southwest of Zihuatanejo this afternoon

A hurricane warning has been issued for the Pacific coast of Mexico from Tecpán de Galeana, Guerrero, to Lázaro Cárdenas, Michoacán, as Marty has been upgraded to a Category 1 hurricane from a tropical storm.
Tecpán de Galeana is located on the central coast of Guerrero, about 140 kilometers southeast of Zihuatanejo.The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) reported at 4:00pm CDT that the storm was 125 kilometers south-southwest of Zihuatanejo, Guerrero, and 235 kilometers west of Acapulco, moving northeast at 9 km/h.
A decrease in speed and a turn to the north is expected, but a small deviation to the right of its forecast track could mean the center of the hurricane makes landfall, said the NHC.
Sustained winds were nearly 130 km/h, but the hurricane is expected to begin weakening tomorrow.
Mexican weather authorities have issued a tropical storm warning for Acapulco to east of Tecpán de Galeana and a tropical storm watch for west of Lázaro Cárdenas to Punta San Telmo.
Hurricane conditions are expected within the hurricane warning area by early tomorrow.
Mexico’s National Meteorological Service forecasts intense and at times torrential rainfall in the coastal and sierra regions of Guerrero and eastern Michoacán, and intense rainfall in western areas of Oaxaca.
Waves up to four meters high are forecast for the coasts of Guerrero and Michoacán, and up to three meters in Oaxaca.
The NHC also forecast a dangerous storm surge accompanied by large and destructive waves that could cause significant flooding.
