Beware of the undertow!

  21 votes
If you want a pleasant laidback intermezzo on your Mexican (Oaxaca) journey: visit the hippie-village of Zipolite near Puerto Angel on the Pacific side. Lovely retreat after the Monte Alban-heat...

Hangloose hammock village. Don't be surpised when old french hippies run around naked. Nothing much to do, but that should be exactly you pupose here. Therfore fun to stay a couple of days, on your trip through the beautiful province of Oaxaca.

One thing: beware of the lethal undertow! [and be cautious.. cause crime is reported regularly...] For info see: [picture Zipolite also taken from that website]

Favourite spots:
Brisas Marina
Brisas Marina
Forget Acapulco, skip definately Puerto Escondido, think Puerto Angel and finally go: Zipolite!

What's really great:
Just doing nothing: hammock time and drinking cubalibres!

I stayed in 1998 in:

Posada Brisas Marina (958) 584-3193. Bathrooms, balconies with hammocks. Owner, Daniel, is American and speaks English. US$8-20/night. (10/02)

but I don't know how it's today, cause it's been rebuilt after a devastating fire in 2001.

Shambhala seems another good option:

Lo Cosmico - restaurant and cabaƱas. The restaurant serves crepes and is recommended. (

helemaal met je eens. Puerto Angel veel beter dan Puerto Escondido en Zipolite was hemel op aarde
