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.

Puerto Angel

When traveling on our boat, we spent most of our time in Mexico. Out of all of 

the places in mexico that I've seen (a lot), I think Puerto Angel is one of the 

coolest and smallest places I have been to. Puerto Angel is filled with so many 

amazing people that are friendly and want to help you get on your way. Puerto 

Angel is also a sup

er tranquilo town that is quiet in the day time, and a party at night. 

I remember strolling through the crowded streets lit up by gorgeous lights. 

There were street performers and stands filled with food galore. My 

family and I spent most of our time eating and being entertained by the 

wonderful people that filled Puerto Angel. 


My all time favorite part was the nightlife, but once the daytime rolled 

around... silence. No one will be wandering the streets but three or four 

people. Everyone was sleeping or having their siesta. I actually really enjoyed

 the silence and walking across the peaceful bridge into town. You don't have

 to wait in line or be patient for your food to come, not that many places 

were open. I remember when I was little, all I wanted to do was move to 

Puerto Angel and live in a tiny shack all by myself, that's how much I loved 

it.  Overall Puerto Angel was a super cool place that I would love to live in 

one day and be apart of the incredible culture.
