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.

Trans Sierra Norte is a multi-day all-mountain race over the beautiful mountains of Oaxaca, a city south of Mexico city. The trails you will be racing on, have been there for centuries used back in the day by local mountain communities to connect with each other and to exchange goods. These trails are 4–8 km length with more than 1000 meters of elevation gain, expect long, fast and rowdy stages during a 3-day backcountry adventure to then finish in the beautiful city of Oaxaca to party and celebrate the famous Mexican holiday "day of the dead". This region is also well known for its traditions, culture, and gastronomy.


A race that was designed to take the best Mexico has to offer and the most fun you will ever have on a bike.







"Yes, a party ride we will make and a Mexican bike story we will write."

For its first edition doors will be open for 60 riders only. With shuttle assistance, beautiful cabins and delicious food! This race won't disappoint anyone!
