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.

How to Choose the Best Seat on a Plane

How to Choose the Best Seat on a Plane
Is there the perfect seat on the plane? It depends on what you're looking for when choosing a seat. Check out our video and the tips below to get started.

Choosing the Best Seat on the Plane
Is there a best seat on the airplane? Some are way better than others, and sometimes paying for a specific s...

Window Seats 

These seats are perfect since you end up sitting against the wall. You can nod off pretty easily, and you get to enjoy a sky view upon departure or arrival. If you’re someone who doesn’t like the sun while flying, you’re at the prime location to control this. Plus, you don’t have to worry about being stuck in between two passengers. 

Exit Row Seats 

If you’re looking for a seat that has lots of room, opt for an exit-row seat. These seats have the possibility of no one sitting in front of you, so it’s pretty easy to move around. These seats also generally have more legroom than first-class or premium seats.  


If you’re really serious about seat selection, you might want to check out SeatGuru is a TripAdvisor site full of wisdom on seat selection. On SeatGuru you can compare the different seats on different carriers. Use its airline comparison chart that details the options available on each airline and in each class of service. 

Paying for the Right Seat 

If comfort is important to you, paying for an upgrade might be a good idea. Even after following the above tips or using SeatGuru, your desired seat may cost you some extra money. It’s sometimes worth paying for, especially if you have a long flight. Don’t take the gamble of waiting until you get to the airport to choose a seat—you never know which one you might get stuck with.
