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.

Mexican surfer wins world championship

18-year-old's win gave Mexico its first individual medal at the World Surfing Games


Eighteen-year-old Mexican surfer Jhony Corzo was crowned the men’s world champion surfer yesterday at the World Surfing Games in Biarritz, France.
It was the first-ever individual medal for Team Mexico, and propelled the team itself to its first-ever medal, winning copper for fourth place overall.
“It’s an amazing feeling to be crowned world champion!” said Corzo after his win. “I don’t have words for it.
“This is something that I wanted ever since I was young and started surfing,” said the native of Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, home of Zicatela Beach, one of the world’s top-10 surfing destinations.
It was Corzo’s first trip to the International Surfing Association (ISA) World Surfing Games, which drew surfers from 47 countries.
The ISA is recognized by the International Olympic Committee as the world’s governing authority for surfing.
Corzo began surfing at the age of five, encouraged by his father, and later influenced by two brothers and a cousin who are also surfers.
