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.

Oaxaca requests aid after strong Mexico quake damages 1,000 homes


MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico’s southern state of Oaxaca requested federal emergency funds on Sunday to supply food, shelter and health services in more than 30 municipalities battered by last week’s powerful quake in a region still reeling from temblors in September.

The 7.2 magnitude quake on Friday, which did not cause any deaths, had its epicenter about 90 miles (145 km) from the Pacific coast surfer resort of Puerto Escondido. It shook buildings in the capital, sent tremors as far south as Guatemala and set off more than 1,520 aftershocks.
At least 1,000 homes were damaged in Oaxaca, the state’s governor, Alejandro Murat, told a Mexican television program on Saturday, higher than earlier estimates of damage.
Media images showed homes, businesses and schools with cracks in their walls and rubble scattered on the ground.
A military helicopter surveying the quake damage crashed in Santiago Jamiltepec on Friday night, killing at least 13 people.
Mexico’s Interior Ministry said federal aid would go to towns including Pinotepa Nacional, closest to the epicenter, and Santiago Jamiltepec, which had reported 50 damaged homes along with a church and government building.
Recovery efforts are still being carried out in Oaxaca as well as Mexico City after strong earthquakes in September killed several hundred people and toppled buildings.
