Zipolite is a rustic, free-spirited, authentic Mexican beach town. It is not a polished resort area. Don’t expect gift shops, golf courses, and fashionable bars filled with holiday revelers. This part of the Oaxaca coast attracts a wonderful mix of people; surfers, aging hippies, nudists, young and old. Many come from Europe, Australia and all over North America year after year attracted by the relaxed culture, warm climate, good restaurants, and modest prices.
