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.

Plenty of clouds this morning!  Lightning flashes for quite a while last night, but no rain here.  Looked like it was to the east.  

Moving on in the morning.  Going to check out one last beach area: Huatulco.  The Mexican tourism board designated, and began development of, this area for tourism ( same as Los Cabos, Cancun, and others).  Don't know if I'll be able to afford to stay anywhere nearby: I'm running right up against their busiest time - Christmas.  Did a little research yesterday and found some reasonable room prices.  Need to go to Pochutla first: need money and drugs (doesn't everybody down here?)  

 Electricity died at 8am.  Didn't get it back 'til 5pm.  

No internet - read all day.  Finished another story.  When I got the internet back, I went shopping for free kindle books.  I'm set for a little while now.  

I mentioned that the surf was loud here: sometimes like the rumble of thunder, even as loud as a jet engine.  I like having my door open all the time, even at night, though sometimes the surf will wake me.  Found that shutting my door and window shuts out about 90% of the sound: pretty good doors and windows!


Sunset was okay.  Nothing too exciting.  

Blog's done.  Start a new book.  Go to bed.
