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.

Pro Tip: SeatGuru's Secrets for Scoring the Best Seats in Coach

Pro Tip: SeatGuru's Secrets for Scoring the Best Seats in Coach

What's the secret to a better airline seat on your next flight? We asked the experts at our sister-site SeatGuru for their best tips on getting the best economy-class airline seats, and how to make any seat (even the one by the bathroom that doesn't recline) a little bit better. Their tips just may change the way you travel.
Know Your Airline, Know Its Legroom
Think you've got a one-size answer to the legroom quandary? Think again. Each airline presents a unique set of challenges to flyers, say the SeatGuru experts: "Not all legroom is equal since there is no industry standard. Before booking your flight, take a look to see which airlines fly that route and then check to see how they stack up against each other. SeatGuru provides a handy chart with all of the information you would need in one spot."
What's Bad for Some Is Good for Others
What's the best seat? What's the worst seat? Ask a dozen people and you just may well get a dozen answers, according to SeatGuru: "While some people can't stand the last row in a plane due to the proximity to galleys and/or lavatories, some people don’t mind. Usually the last row is only two across on either side of the plane, which translates to extra room."
Buy Your Ticket Early
Good news for advance planners: Your instinct to book early may be right, at least when it comes to maximizing seat selection. The folks at SeatGuru explain: "Usually, you can’t choose a good seat the day before since seats go quickly. The earlier you book your flight, the more seats available, the bigger your pool to pick from."
Use the Best Worst-Kept Secret
Need extra legroom? Then do what you can to score an exit row or bulkhead seat. SeatGuru advises: "If you are able to grab a seat here, you usually get some extra legroom to stretch out in. It is important to note though that if an emergency does occur, you will have to step up and help out."
Get a Good Travel Pillow
Choosing your seat well definitely makes a difference when it comes to comfort and inflight naps, but it's not the only piece to the puzzle. Even SeatGuru's experts agree. "For those who like to sleep, pillows are essential. Before your flight, check out some inflatable airplane neck pillows on Amazon. Besides, who knows the last time the pillows on the plane were washed."
