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.

Flag of Mexico  Pacific Coast
Saturday, March 28, 2015
Our next stop on the Pacific coast was Zipolite, a town famous since the 60´s for being a nudest beach. We heard that the nakedness stayed in one corner of the beach, and that the town was worth a visit, so we booked a reservation at a beautiful hilltop bungalow. Our room was a lovely little home with a kitchen, ocean view, and lots of kitties to play with. Although the beach was long and beautiful, we found that the old naked men were hard to escape from, so we mainly stuck to our hilltop quarters.
Next we moved a few kilometers down the coast to Mazunte, another beautiful beach cove with a strong hippie scene. The beach here was more friendly on the eyes, and the drum banging and fire twirling provided much entertainment. The town packed full of Mexican families for Holy Week (the week leading up to Easter), and the fiestas were nonstop. We indulged in some buckets of Mojitos and Micheladas a couple nights as well, but mostly just relaxed on the beach and did yoga.
