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.

Citizens rescue whale beached in Oaxaca

Three hours of pushing and pulling sends whale back to the deep


Citizens of Salina Cruz, Oaxaca, rallied to the aid of a humpback whale yesterday after it became stranded on a local beach.
It was early yesterday morning that fishermen alerted municipal and Civil Protection authorities that the whale appeared to be stuck on the beach at Bahía Ensenada La Ventosa.
Over the course of three hours, fishermen, residents, visitors, environmental protection officers and Navy personnel pushed and pulled the animal — more than eight meters long and estimated to weigh some 10 tonnes — back into the water.
Helping supervise the operation was veterinarian Nayeli Aquino Rojas, coordinator of the municipal fisheries department, who concluded the whale had become disoriented during its northerly migration and pushed in to the beach by strong currents.
