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.

Miami, U.S., Sep 7 (EFE).- Tropical storm Grace is continuing to strengthen as it moves across the Atlantic waters, attaining wind speeds of 85 kph (53 mph), the U.S. National Hurricane Center, or NHC, said Sunday.
The storm was located about 835 km (520 miles) west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands, near latitude 13.2 North, longitude 31.2 West, according to NHC.
Grace, the seventh tropical storm of the current Atlantic hurricane season, was moving west at 24 kph (15 mph) and is expected to continue to do so for the next 48 hours with some increase in forward speed, it added.
No storm warning signal has been issued so far, unlike for tropical storm Fred, which, after strengthening to a Category 1 hurricane during the week, dissipated Sunday into a remnant low, with maximum sustained winds of 45 kph (28 mph).
Since the start of the cyclone season in the Atlantic on June 1, there have been seven tropical storms: "Ana", "Bill", "Claudette", "Danny" (which reached Category 3 to become the season's first major hurricane), "Erika", "Fred" and "Grace".
