Keep the pics coming! They're gorgeous! Be safe and have a blast.

Cool2 Zipolite, awesome!!!

Zipolite.
This little beachside town was a real highlight.
My favorite beach in Mexico. ~2KM long wide sandy beach, with a decent grade into the water. Great surf coming in for fun. Awesome terrain.The beach also runs exactly East/West and so you could watch the sun coming up from the East in the morning and going down in the West in the Evening.


There were tons of Pelicans. My favorite bird. So amazing watching them fly, with a 7 foot wingspan I imagine them as a prehistoric Teradactyle.




Beachside massage.

Don`t even know what kind of bird this was, but it was huge & a little scary looking.

Next went to Mazunte which was the beach just north. People where telling me it was also very nice. & Yes it was.



Power went out in my room & so I could not use the ventilador & it was hot, so I slept in this hammock. It was actually very nice & fortunately there were no bugs.

Great town

Saw the ruins of Monte Alban

The Ball court. Most interesting thing about this game is that the reward for the winners was EXECUTION which meant honour into the afterlife

Central Square. Were the action always is in Mexican Pueblos.
The woman vendors generally have kids in tow or on their backs. Strenuous & must be very boring for the kids, but their part is making you feel the need here. The older kids many times will sell also or beg. Shining shoes is very popular. I had nice shiny boots.


This lavish cathedral sits on the town's zócalo.

Church of Santo Domingo de Guzman. Spectacular.
The church and monastery were founded by the Dominican Order. Begun in 1570, they were constructed over a period of 200 years, between the 16th and 18th centuries.
