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.

Navy band to play here



A Navy brass quartet will perform an open-air concert just prior to the laser light show, Sunday, June 26, according to Bureau of Reclamation Public Affairs Officer Lynne Brougher.
The quartet is part of a 35-piece Navy band stationed at Silverdale, Wash. Different groups of the band make some 400 appearances a year in and around the Northwest.
Ivan Snavely, who heads the Visitor Center at Grand Coulee Dam, helped make arrangements for the June 26 performance.
Navy Band Northwest is under the leadership of its director, Lt. Bruce Mansfield, and falls under the operational command of Rear Admiral Jeff Ruth.
In order to be selected to take part in the Navy band program, applicants must audition before one of 11 Navy bands. Band members tend to serve from 3-5 years, officials said, and there is a high re-enlistment rate of about 85 percent.
The Silverdale Navy group performs in such places as the states of Washington, Alaska, Oregon, northern California, Nevada, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, Utah, Colorado, and western Nebraska and Kansas. They will play in front of the seating area outside the Visitor Center starting at 9 p.m. and ending about 9:45, just prior to the start of the laser light show.
