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.

Old Navy opens seven stores in Mexico City

Two more coming next month in Puebla, Querétaro

The U.S. clothing retailer Old Navy is proceeding with its expansion into Mexico with the opening of seven new stores in Mexico City this month and two more in November.
At the inauguration of a new store this week in Toreo Parque Central, in the north of Mexico City, company financial director Jen Fall said it is Old Navy’s biggest launch of new stores outside the United States.
She said one of the reasons why foreign retailers are entering the Mexican market is ease of access. It is much easier to do so now than it was four years ago, said Fall, adding that flexible import duties between Mexico and the U.S. are also a factor.
The company will open stores in Multi Plaza Aragón, Parque Tezontle, Oasis Coyoacán, Forum Buenavista, Plaza Tlanepantla and Ciudad Jardín as well as Toreo Parque Central.
Other stores will open next month in the Galerías Serdán in Puebla and the Antea Lifestyle Center in Querétaro.

“It’s a big launch for us,” said Old Navy executive vice-president Ivan Wicksteed, “with a significant investment that demonstrates the level of commitment we’re making to be in Mexico.”
The firm didn’t say how big that investment is or what its sales objectives are in Mexico, which becomes the fifth country in which it operates.
Its products have previously been available through Liverpool department stores, but according to a report in August Old Navy was encouraged to open stand-alone stores in light of the success in Mexico of its other brands, Gap and Banana Republic.
That report also said 60 Old Navy Stores are planned over the next four years.
