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.

Hide your valuables in plain sight with SHOLDIT, a scarf that can hold everything that a purse can, via a secret zippered pocket. If you do decide to travel with a (small) bag, it can also fold down into a zippered clutch.

One downside of traveling with a backpack or purse is it makes you more vulnerable to pickpockets. Instead, rock the Pick-Pocket Proof Pants from Clothing Arts, which have double-secured pockets with a zipper and button flap for extra protection.

The Girly Go Garter is the sexiest alternative to a money belt we've ever seen. It's an adjustable garter belt with built-in pockets that hold your phone, cash, passport, ID, credit card … or even your flask. It can hold up to three pounds of stuff without falling down—even through strenuous activities like running or dancing. Find it on Amazon orapricotlaneboutique.com.

The whole Scottevest line is designed to help you travel without a bag, and we love the newFeatherweight Vest because it only weighs 0.6 lbs. This means you can load up the vest's 14 hidden pockets without feeling too bulky or dragged down.

The Hips Sister is basically a less obtrusive alternative to a fanny pack. This belt blends in with your clothing, but has three pockets to stash all of your stuff.

Coming in all kinds of cool colors and fabrics, Speakeasy travel scarves look exactly like a normal infinity scarf. But they have a secret: a hidden zippered pocket that can hold your phone, camera, passport, keys, cash, etc. Your stuff is hidden to pickpockets, but easily accessible to you. Perfect.

Want to go for a run in a new city, but don't have any pockets to keep your cash and hotel key in? Toss on the BANDI Pocketed Headband, an athletic headband with a built-in pocket that can hold a few small essentials.

Keep your belongings close with the Clever Travel Companion T-shirt. This T-shirt is fitted, so you can wear it as a base layer, hiding whatever you've stashed in the two built-in zippered pockets. We love that the pockets are on the side of the shirt, so it's more inconspicuous than front money belts.
