Location

Arroyo Tres, Oaxaca, Mexico

In its entirety, Zipolite is about 2km long, so there is no need for a car. Taxis and colectivos are abundant.

Eating places, posadas, hotelitos, tiendas, craft vendors, and the country’s only nude beach are steps away from CAMP.

“Unofficially a ‘playa libre’ for more than 50 years, Zipolite nudity was legalized in 2016. Zipolite is considered the best place for social nudity in the country. The numerous nude sunbathers, and the long tradition, make it safer for nudity.”
— Wikipedia

When you ask us why we love Zipolite, we think of its tolerance: anyone is welcome here. Not a resort, Zipolite or “Playa de los Muertos” (beach of the dead) is known for rugged countercurrents—in both the ocean riptide and social nonconformist meanings.

This small place self-selects for people who identify themselves by more than consumerism. The people attracted here usually present exactly as they are. They love Zipolite’s freedom, and they devotionally return. We love the people you can meet here, how open and amazed by life they often are. There is diversity and a tranquil, chill attitude.

You can get to know the townspeople on the beach, where some wear attire and others don’t.

“If we do have an essential nature of being social, and clothing does do something towards alienating us from each other, nudity helps break down alienation. I think that's why so many people like it. Whether they recognize that's why they like it or not." —Mark Storey.

Some of us are foreigners, some are nationals, some are from a village, some are city transplants. Zipolite is a simple, unpretentious, small town where everything is personal. We love the rustic sophistication here; how rudimentary it is, chickens on the road and beloved street dogs coexisting with the urbanity of hissing espresso machines and sublime baguettes.

The town is contained, we can walk it. People know each other—we have familiarity with our neighbors. Zipolite is not self-consciously “green” or “eco.” Foods are not labeled as organic, pastured, farm-to-table, or natural—Zipoliteños buy local because it's what makes sense. The laws exist to improve your life, we don’t encounter law for law’s sake here. The vegetation, the weather, and how nature changes, is paradisiacal.

Eat — if it looks good, it probably is good. Favorite restaurants include: Órale Café, Noga, La Providencia, El Alquimista, Nude Zipolite (<5 minute walk); Posada Mexico, Lupita, Entropia, La Fenice (<10 minute walk); Maya Papaya Vegan, Zeta Cultural, Gula Gula, Delfina (<15 minute walk); Clan Destino, Salmastro (<20 minute walk). These all can be found on Google Maps.

Stay — good nearby accommodations include: Luna de Piedra, Flor de Mar, Las Casitas, Noga, El Alquimista, Nude Zipolite, Posada Mexico.

Do — for quality Zipolite happenings follow Zeta Cultural @zetacultural, 175 Show Room @175showroom, Piña Palmera @pinapalmera … and explore nearby experiences in San Agustinillo, Mazunte, and Ventanilla (<10 minute taxi or colectivo).

Nightlife — in Zipolite is subdued, and typically over before midnight.
