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.

Rare albino whale is back in Baja, with calf

Gray whale was first spotted in the 2008-2009 season

An albino whale first spotted in the waters off the Baja peninsula in 2008-2009 is back, this time with a calf.
Nicknamed “Gallon of Milk,” the rare albino whale was first identified by scientists when it was a calf itself.
The whale reappeared this year during the season’s seventh whale census, in which 2,211 gray whales were counted in the Ojo de Liebre lagoon. Counting the whales is a practice carried out annually by the National Protected Areas Commission, or Conanp.
Gallon of Milk’s calf, unlike its mother, is gray in color.
The Ojo de Liebre lagoon, located in the municipality of Mulegé in Baja California Sur, is part of the Vizcaíno Biosphere Reserve UNESCO World Heritage Site and the winter breeding grounds for the gray whale.
Monitoring the gray whale migration has been undertaken for the past 20 years, during which time officials have documented what they say is the successful recovery of the whale population.
