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.

My Guidebook to Cancun and the Mayan Riviera, Mexico

My Guidebook to Cancun and the Mayan Riviera, Mexico

The first edition of my Cancun and Mayan Riviera 5-Day Itinerary was published in 2013, and I updated it in Februrary 2016, adding new restaurants, better hotels, and details on many more nearby places to visit.
Though the guide is designed for an independent traveler to hit the major highlights of the region in five days (or fewer), it contains enough info for three weeks or more, and includes insider tips for saving money, eating authentic food, and traveling farther into Mexico on your own.
This guidebook is often one of Amazon’s top three bestselling books for Cancun, and sometimes even for all of Mexico. It’s also one of the top sellers for Unanchor, an excellent independent publisher specializing in travel itineraries.
