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.

Saving Timone - Oaxaca Puppy The Rescued Dog The Rescued Dog

Saving Timone - Oaxaca Puppy

Published on Nov 9, 2015
A rescuer’s work is never done. Even when on vacation, dogs seek us out. When our rescue coordinator vacationed in Oaxaca, Mexico, she crossed paths with a malnourished, mange covered puppy. It didn’t take her long to come up with a plan to rescue and quarantine Timone with a local vet. Once healthy, The Rescued Dog will return for Timone and bring her to San Diego. This is Timone’s story - the luckiest stray in Oaxaca.
