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.

Butterfly sanctuaries open next Wednesday Monarchs have been arriving in Mexico since early October

Monarchs have been arriving in Mexico since early October

Monarch butterflies are settling in at their winter abode in the forests of the State of México and Michoacán and are expected to be ready to greet visitors beginning next week.
The butterflies began arriving in time for Day of the Dead ceremonies on November 2, but the first sightings of the migrating insects were reported October 7 in Coahuila.
Today, the Natural Protected Areas Commission announced that eight Hibernation Sanctuaries will open to the public next Wednesday, and remain open until March 31.
The butterflies spend the winter in Mexico after traveling for three months from the United States and Canada, a journey of 4,000 kilometers or more.
The sanctuaries in Michoacán where the butterflies can be observed are El Rosario and El Asoleadero in Ocampo, Senguio in the municipality of the same name and Sierra Chincua in Angangueo.
In the State of México the sanctuaries are Capulín and Macheros in Donato Guerra, La Mesa in San José del Rincón and Piedra Herrada in San Mateo Almololoa.
