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.

Members of the Olive Ridley Turtle Sanctuary Cooperative on La Escobilla beach, in the town of Santa Maria Tonameca, battle for turtle conservation in the Pacific Ocean to protect populations that have been hunted to the brink of extinction.
Although 150,000 to 200,000 turtles are expected to lay as many as 15 million eggs, the species is still vulnerable because only 10 per cent of the 15 million eggs will hatch in 45 days while many are hunted. Conservation efforts have included educating local fishermen who traditionally hunted turtles prized for turtle soup and their meat.
The 15 kilometres of protected shoreline along Mexico's Oaxaca Pacific coast contain 12 beaches where olive ridley turtles nest around the world, according to the National Commission of Natural Protected Areas (CONANP).
The most important one is this one, due to the number of nestings. This beach sees between seven and eight arrivals per year of nesting marine turtles. — Reuters
