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.

The One Thing You Should Never Do With Your Boarding Pass October 19, 2015 6:49 pm by Jamie Ditaranto


The One Thing You Should Never Do With Your Boarding Pass
You're at the gate. You've got your boarding pass. You're heading somewhere exciting and you just can't wait until you get there to share the news with your friends on social media. So you snap a picture of your boarding pass and post it to Facebook. Harmless, right?
Maybe not.
Because the information printed on your boarding pass actually reveals a lot more than you think.
As explained via a recent blog post by KrebsonSecurity, there are websites that can read the barcodes on your boarding pass and provide someone else access to your travel information—your phone number, frequent flyer number, and information not only about the flight in question but also all future flights booked through the same number.
With access to your boarding pass, someone could even change your seat on the plane, cancel any future flights, and reset your account PIN number.
You may love your friends, but would you trust everyone you know on Facebook or Twitter with your private travel information? Didn't think so.
The takeaway here: Don't post pictures of your boarding pass on social media.
