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.

There was an explosion described as “relatively strong” at the Popocatépetl volcano last night, sending a two-kilometer column of ash skyward and shooting incandescent fragments to a distance of up to 3.5 kilometers.
The fragments ignited bush fires on the volcano’s upper slopes, reported Volcano Discovery.
An overnight flight Saturday by officials aboard a helicopter found that a new lava dome that had formed in January was gone, destroyed by a recent series of explosions. The dome contained an estimated 2 million cubic meters of lava.
The National Disaster Prevention Center (Cenapred) said a new inner crater could be seen in the volcano and predicted another lava dome will soon be growing inside it.
The earthquake and volcano alert system called SkyAlert said last night’s explosion, which took place at 8:30, was the biggest in three years measured in terms of its force.
The volcano, also known as El Popo, remains under a yellow, phase 2 alert.

Civil Protection recommends that residents near the volcano remain indoors during periods of ash fall and take measures to protect themselves should they have to go outside.
Popocatépetl is one of Mexico’s most active volcanoes after it began producing powerful explosions in 1994 following a 50-year-long dormant period. The 5,426-meter volcano lies 70 kilometers southeast of Mexico City.
