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.

Can anyone give me an idea of the cost of a taxi from Huatulco airport to Puerto Angel (Or Zipolite in Ivan's case ... ) , please? I gather that it's best to ignore the airport taxis and walk out of the airport and then hail a cab, but it would be good to get confirmation of this.

Here is the price sheet, but it's from 2015, for the cabs outside the airport property.(the best price, you are correct)
Expect the fares to be a bit higher this year. Maybe someone has a more current copy....

That price list is from the road taxis, not the airport taxi. It quotes 500 pesos to puerto angel.

Very cool. I didn't have a price list. When I got to Zipolite, I was told I should have been able to bargain down to $400 peso's... but I also was tired, new where I wanted to go at Zipolite (Cafe Maya... so cool and honest) and was able to stop for a cold brew twice on the way to my destination of paradise. Have fun. And keep happy. Sincerely. Ivan.
