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.

Dead Show/podcast for 4/1/16 
By The Deadpod 
Gratefuldead, Music, Rock
Hey Now! No April Fool here!! well yes there is, but its the April Fool the band pulled on its audience 36 years ago, on April 1st 1980, when the boys took the stage and proceeded to swap insturments - Bobby on keyboards, Brent and Jerry on drums, Billy on bass, Michey on rhythm guitar and vocals and Phil Lesh on lead guitar for the weirdest Promised Land ever.. Just had to bring that to you on this week's April Fool edition of the Deadpod.. the rest of the set is straight forward and hard charging... they do a 'real' rendition of Promised Land, followed by a nice Candyman, Uncle->Big River, Friend of the Devil, then a great 'It's All Over Now'. I personally enjoy the set closing Looks Like Rain into a rousing Deal.. We'll hear set 2 next week..Grateful DeadCapitol TheatrePassaic, NJ 4/1/80 - TuesdayOne The Promised Land (1) [3:03] ;The Promised Land [3:49] ;Candyman [6:41] ;Me And My Uncle [3:02] >Big River [5:49] ;Friend Of The Devil[9:22] ;It's All Over Now [7:02] ;Don't Ease
