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.

News Santa helps police polish their reputation Santa Cop spreads Christmas cheer and good vibes in Tijuana 1 1 Mexico News Daily | Tuesday, December 22, 2015 What to do when your police force has a bad rap as a result of past connections with organized crime and drug trafficking? Dress up an officer as Santa Claus and send him out on the street. That’s what the police did in Tijuana, only there they call him Santa Cop and instead of a red suit his is police issue blue. Antonio Medina Cabrera donned the outfit December 12 and went out spreading Christmas cheer in the community, along with good vibes about Tijuana’s finest. Normally, reports El Universal, citizens are fearful when approached by a cop due to the force’s poor reputation. But when Santa Cop appears, out come the smiles and the smartphones; everyone wants a selfie of a friendly hug with Tijuana’s St. Nick. The initiative is a program called Vinculación Social, or Social Connection, designed to bring the police closer to the community, particularly children. At Christmas time, its ambassador heads out into the city’s neighborhoods bearing candies and piñatas. That’s what Santa Cop does best because when he attempts to direct traffic no one pays him any attention: all the drivers want hugs and selfies, too.
