Not a great swimming or snorkeling beach, but nice for walking and good restaurants. We walked there from Puerto Angel, a short but demanding walk. Took the Connectivo truck on the return trip for just 8 pesos! An adventure in itself.

Zipolite has a wonderful community of eclectic Foreigners and Mexican Nationals. It's famous for the the clothing optional beach, but well known for it's relaxed, friendly environment.

We stopped here for a Zipolita fruit drink and a tour of an organic cosmetic factory. It's a quaint little place and at the beach side Zipotila bar we bumped into some old hippy chick who's been there since Gerry Garcia started the Grateful Dead....More
