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.

Governor announces new resort project

Grupo Lomas to build Nickelodeon resort and water park in Huatulco

A US $175-million tourist development for the resort town of Huatulco, Oaxaca, was announced yesterday during the Acapulco Tianguis Turístico, Mexico’s biggest travel trade show.
The mega-project will include a Nickelodeon resort and water park with 761 hotel rooms, five large pools and 13 restaurants with seating for 2,500 in Huatulco’s Bahía de Conejos.
The news was announced by Oaxaca Governor Alejandro Murat Hinojosa and representatives of the Mexican firm Grupo Lomas, who also referred to plans to improve air connectivity to the resort destination with new flights by its regional airline, MAYAir.
The company announced plans for Huatulco early last year after purchasing its Bahía de Conejos property, located near Secrets Resort & Spa. At that time it also said it planned to build a marina.
Murat said his administration will boost tourism as never before, pointing out that the industry is the state’s principal productive activity and represents the main source of income for close to 100 communities.
“We want to invite all of Mexico to come and get to know this special world that is Oaxaca,” said the governor, highlighting features such as its 550 kilometers of coastline and the greatest biodiversity in Mexico.
Murat also pointed out that Oaxaca is part of the Mayan route, a flagship project of the federal government during this year’s Tianguis that promotes the Mayan World route of the airline Aeromar, linking destinations in Campeche, Chiapas, Quintana Roo, Tabasco, Yucatán and Oaxaca.
