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.

I was in Mexico for 4 months last year and visited both towns. (Had also been to both in the past.) Zipolite was its same quiet, charming and beautiful self after a 7-year absence; Sayulita was loud, felt dirty, and was bulging at the seams with people. I ended up hanging out in Zipolite for 15 days; I left Sayulita after drinking two Pacificos at an ignored side-street bar, which was the only place I could find a table. IMO, there is no comparison but I totally get the "Difficult to Get There" factor. I think Zihuatanejo is a great solution if that seems insurmountable, since you can likely fly there direct from Seattle. (It can be done from here in Portland.) Zihua is growing but down by the water it still feels like a fishing village.
