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.

Dolphin found dead on the beach of Zipolite

Dolphin found dead on the beach of Zipolite


A dolphin more than two meters long was found dead off the beaches of Zipolite on the Oaxacan coast and was returned to the sea after learning the authorities of the Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection and Ministry of the Navy.
The report indicates that during the morning of Thursday, fishermen were warned that a dolphin who was at the beach, so they asked for help from lifeguards to return to the sea, as happened with another dolphin in Puerto Escondido.
However, in trying to help him they confirmed that he was dead and so gave intervention to the Attorney General for Environmental Protection and the authorities responsible for overseeing the Oaxacan coast.
After analyzing the remains of the dauphin, afternoon fishermen and salvavidades decided to return it to the sea to be fish food.
The investigation is continuing in order to establish which was the cause of death of the dauphin, to other similar cases occur.
