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.

Insider Tip: Mexico's Street Food Last updated 05:00, January 29 2017

Insider Tip: Mexico's Street Food

It's no wonder Mexico is world famous for its scrumptious street-food scene, everything tastes better in Mexico!
With many markets and distinctive flavours, the state and city of Oaxaca offers some of the most celebrated cooking and ingredients in Mexico.
With its elegant colonial buildings, an impressive arts and crafts scene, markets selling mounds of mole (sauce) and the state's other favourite food, chocolate, Oaxaca looks and tastes good.
A favourite restaurant of mine in Oaxaca was Pitiona. I delved into a six-course tasting menu at a courtyard table and watched as the chefs crafted complex dishes such as sopa de fideos, a noodle and bean soup that was brought out with delicate bundles of cheese that burst into liquid in the mouth.
Each course is paired with a Mexican wine, craft beer or mezcal from small producers that now thrive as part of the country's growing gourmet scene.
However, to get to the heart of Oaxacan cuisine, I needed to visit the food markets.
Here I found the country's best selection of salsas. I recommend trying the mole negros which is made from a base of black chillies, chocolate and sesame seeds – delicious!
