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.

Volcano sends ash, smoke 2.2 km high

Residents warned to watch for falling ash and rock

  14  11
The Colima Volcano was looking lively for Christmas with eruptions on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and again today.
Yesterday’s sent ash and smoke skyward to a height of 2.2 kilometers, prompting more warnings from federal Civil Protection authorities.
Falling chunks of rock of up to 50 centimeters in diameter and ash are the two dangers to watch for by anyone in the vicinity of the volcano.
Civil Protection, state authorities in Jalisco and Colima and the University of Colima maintain ongoing monitoring of the active volcano, also known as the Volcano of Fire, to keep area residents informed of any danger.
In the event of ash fall, they say, a damp cloth or face mask should be used to cover the nose and mouth and the use of contact lenses should be avoided. The eyes and throat should be kept clean with pure water.
The volcano straddles Jalisco and Colima and has been erupting regularly.
