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.

Mexico: Mango production in the Isthmus down due to drought

The president of the Oaxaca's Mango Product System Council, Roberto Nivon Velasquez, said that the producers of San Pedro Tapanatepec, Santo Domingo Zanatepec, Reforma de Pineda, San Francisco Ixhuatán, San Francisco del Mar and Chahuites, had large losses in the current crop due to the lack of rains last year.

He also stated that, even though they had exported 56,400 tons of Tommy, Ataulfo, and Gold mango varieties to the United States, Canada, and Europe, the drought had caused a 40 percent decrease in the production.

Unfortunately, he said, approximately 80 percent of the orchards need the rains because they don't have irrigation systems. "Those orchards, mainly the adult ones, are dying because of climate change."

He also stressed that the drought caused the Texas root rot diseases between March and October, when the temperatures surpassed the 27 degrees Celsius.

As a result, he asked the federal and state governments for support to protect the cultivation of mango, which generates about five thousand direct jobs and highlights Mexico's name worldwide.
