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.

If you consider yourself a foodie and you want to take a trip, look no further than Oaxaca, one of Mexico's most important gastronomical hubs, for a unique culinary experience.

The southwest state's cuisine is rooted in indigenous traditions that attract food tourists from across the world, including the Travel Channel's Andrew Zimmern. The host of "Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern" traveled to the region to try several of its delicacies, including the specially seasoned chapulines, or grasshoppers.

In an exclusive clip for The Huffington Post, Hugo Sandoval and Roberto Perez of the Imalim company in Oaxaca show Zimmern the step-by-step process of how to properly cook grasshoppers. The business owners have studied the centuries-long "art" and tradition of preparing chapulines for more than 10 years, and are now attempting to ship their Oaxacan trail mix abroad.
