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.

They try to strip the founder of Zipolite

They try to strip the founder of Zipolite

They try to strip the founder of Zipolite

Again Zipolite is the scene of the greed of foreigners who try to strip Tía Gloria of an estate as they know it on this beach, which owns the last natural sanctuary which is considered a natural reserve which promotes meditation, prehispanic rituals and healing through Of temazcales.
It has hosted national and world events where they meet to celebrate holistic rituals and celebrations, however despite having the documentation of the place the ambition of a foreigner has corrupted communal authorities, local who with favors have extended apocryphal documentation giving it legality To an illegal case.
In spite of her advanced age Aunt Gloria says she is ready to defend her lands since for her she is the last natural redoubt of this community that now is seen in eminent risk.
Once they tried to strip it of their land without obtaining them and now this new conflict has mobilized to the public that worries sees as little by little they are disappearing green areas to turn them into big hotels of 5 stars.
At the end of the court proceedings with long arms tried to remove tourists from the hut with long weapons without succeeding since there is an order of the judge who endorses the property of Doña Gloria, However, people came to dismantle the cabin before the impotence of his Owner who hopes that justice will be expeditious and expeditious.
