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.

Divers Rommel Pacheco Marrufo and Viviana del Ángel Peniche have earned Mexico’s first medal at the 17th annual World Aquatics Championships currently under way in the cities of Budapest and Balatonfüred, Hungary.
Pacheco and del Ángel participated in the mixed combined three and 10-meter team event, where they came in second place behind the French team.
“We’re very happy to win the first medal for Mexico, happy to be a team, this is the first time Viviana and I have done it,” Pacheco told the newspaper El Economista.
The win “is my birthday present,” added Pacheco, who turned 31 last week.
Pacheco’s and del Ángel’s silver is the 15th medal Mexico has won in the history of Fina, or International Swimming Federation. Over the years, Mexico has accumulated one gold medal, five silver and nine bronze.
The swimming competitions continue today with the participation of Pacheco and fellow diver Jahir Ocampo Marroquín in the three-meter singles springboard event. Pacheco placed third in the semifinals, while Ocampo was 11th among 16 divers.
The championships began July 14 and finish July 30.
