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.

Alaska announces new Mexico City flights Daily round-trip service from three California cities starting in August

Alaska announces new Mexico City flights

Daily round-trip service from three California cities starting in August

Alaska Airlines has received United States Department of Transport approval for new daily round-trip service to Mexico City from three cities in California.
Flights from Los Angeles and San Francisco are expected to begin August 8 while on November 6 service will begin from San Diego and a second Los Angeles flight will be added.
The flights await approval by Mexican authorities but the airline expects that to come soon and reservations are now being taken. The airline will use Boeing 737 and Embraer E175 aircraft for the routes.
Those routes were described as propitious for California tourism leaders today in a report by the San Diego Union-Tribune as an extra effort is being made to woo Mexican travelers in the face of strained relations between Mexico and the U.S. since President Donald Trump took office.
A delegation of California tourism representatives will travel to Mexico City next week to promote the state.
Alaska obtained new slots at the Mexico City airport as a result of the Aeroméxico-Delta Air Lines joint venture, which was approved on condition that they surrender slots.
