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.

Pemex moves north, opens in Houston It is the first of five gas stations it has planned for the city

Pemex moves north, opens in Houston

It is the first of five gas stations it has planned for the city

The retail gasoline market will be open to all comers in 2018 when domestic and foreign competitors are expected to open gas stations in competition with the state oil company Pemex.
But in the meantime Pemex itself has made a competitive move of its own: today it entered the U.S. market by opening a gas station in Houston, the first of five it has planned for the Texas city.
More could well follow as the company embarks upon a strategic North American expansion plan to create more value.
Houston was chosen for its large Latin — and particularly Mexican — population and also because it is seen as a highly competitive market in which companies that are expected to be Pemex’ future competitors in Mexico are operating.
The company said in a statement that the Houston pilot project would allow it to measure the impact the Pemex brand has against others and identify business opportunities.
The new stations are to be operated by third-party franchisees.
