Zipolite

Located just north of Puerto Angel, this beach is known as the most relaxing one around.

Reviewed By Robert S - South Lake Tahoe, California

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.
Getting to Zipolite from Oaxaca City is definitely an experience over the mountain switchbacks. Would recommend getting there from Puerto Escondido for the sake of scenery and sanity.

Punta Cometa

Reviewed By Karen F - Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Join the hippies on a trek 1 km up the mountain and out to the point, to watch the sunset over stunning ocean views. The path starts at the cemetery, so easier to ask for directions to THAT than the trail itself. Take a flashlight in case you don't head back down before it gets dark.

Ron's Place in Zipolite

Ron's Place in Zipolite (Oaxaca, Mexico) is a unpretentious watering hole where friends and future friends gather to talk, drink, and revel in the fact that, despite it all, life truly is good. Especially when you have a drink in front of you and good tunes playing in the background.

Reviewed By neauxmad

Without going into too many details, Ron's Place kinda saved my life...
There's always good music, an amazingly friendly crowd (mostly expats), good drinks, and an overall welcoming atmosphere. Zipolite itself is a pretty welcoming place, but Ron and his bar gave me a dose of familiarity whenever I needed it. This place was my savior when I visited Zipolite in Dec-Jan and again in March and I've met some of my favorite people ever while there. #OasisWithinAnotherOasis

Solstice Yoga Center

After years of teaching my classes at La Loma Linda in Zipolite I decided that is was time for change. Solstice Yoga Center is now localized in a new place called Cabanas Las 3 Marias, in the beautiful beach village of San Agustinillo. I'd like to invite you to come and join me for your next yoga holiday in this stunning place! Please subscribe to my newsletter to stay in touch :-) Namaste, Brigitte Longueville Solstice Yoga Center

Solstice Yoga is located on top of the hills surrounding Zipolite. The center has a very big room with an amazing palm roof where you can find a complete collection of tools to practice yoga positions. All the teachers of Solstice Yoga are very professional....MoreHi Michele, Thanks for your nice review on TripAdvisor :-) If you have some great Solstice Yoga Center or Zipolite pictures, please upload them to our TripAdvisor section...

Reviewed By Marjolaine P - Hoi An, Vietnam

We chose the river hike since in this period of the year, there were no other activities available. It resulted to be an excellent choice! Our guide Daniel was very friendly and explained us in a very detailed way how we had to manage for the differents steps of the hike, and the security rules. We had a lot of fun and adrenaline, and also a simple and delicious breakfast and "pineapple time" in the river. We always felt very safe and enjoyed the adventure a lot. The landscapes we saw were beautiful. We recommend it to anyone wanting to do something a little bit different from the beach and the sea in Mazunte, it will be the occasion to discover another aspects of the wonderful region of Oaxaca.

Bahia Estacahuite

I love this place so much I drove 2 days to get there. I will be back. We saw whales swimming by at sunset. A mother and her baby were breaching/ jumping and splashing. It was magical.

Laguna Ventanilla

Reviewed By Nelson N

We had friends to visited it previously and strongly recommended it. Taxis charged 80 pesos from Mazunte but the local bus (colectivo) charges 5 pesos each person. It is a 10 minute-ride. Note the local colectivo is not appropriate for elderly people or people with motor disabilities. We received a great explanation at the beginning. Note we selected the red tour. This includes only wild life tour around the pond in contrast with the white tour run by a different group that apparently has animals in captivity. We saw several birds and iguanas but we didn't see crocodiles. At the end, the splashed water and "called the crocodiles" by whistling which did not sound so spontaneous. It is better to do it during a cloudy day. Anyway, the whole explanation about the pond cycles, beach sand types and wild life was appropriate.

Playa Mazunte

Reviewed By Nelson N

We loved this place from the arrival moment. We found everything enchanting: the little town, the atmosphere, the energetic ocean waves. We strongly recommend staying by El Rinconcito where going into the ocean water is safer. It is a perfect place for couples looking for a calm vacation time. It is not a massive touristic place one hour away from Huatulco airport. Notes, airport taxis charge 800-1100 pesos to bring you there. We recommend ti call to your hotel and arrange a 500 pesos-airport pick up. All visited restaurants were great.

The retreat was the genesis of a profound experience that is still revealing itself. All aspects of the meditation, yoga and lecture sessions are well planned and clearly presented. The accommodations are simple but appropriate to the retreat environment, food is delicious, fresh and lovingly prepared.
