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.

Southern Munchies ... :)

Santa Fe, Mexico City, will be the first location for a new entry in the fast-food market in Mexico, when Dunkin’ Donuts opens its doors.
The U.S.-based chain announced plans in January to open 100 outlets in Mexico over the next few years, naming the Federal District, Hidalgo, State of México, Morelos, Jalisco and Querétaro as states on which it would focus.
Company president Paul Twohig said the move is in response to what the firm sees as a significant demand for its products: high-quality food and beverages at a good price.
It has signed an agreement with the Mexican subsidiary of Sizzling Platter, which operates Little Caesars pizza restaurants in Mexico City and Guadalajara.
Dunkin’ Donuts will be competing against Krispy Kreme, another U.S. chain, which is already well established in Mexico with 129 outlets, and several businesses that specialize in coffee.
Starbucks leads that sector with at least 40% market share and 500 restaurants.
The Santa Fe restaurant opens next Wednesday.
