It's on the coast south of Pto Escondido, and it's kinda unique...and weird.

Most everybody enjoys it.
Naw, Zipolite really wasn't my thing. Too laid back, too fun, too inexpensive, too many hot naked women.

Puerto Angel

Its pretty cool,, stayed at a great place on beach, parked moto next to room, made sure they had NFL playoff game (GO PACK GO) sat down down at restaurant, had a cold one, watched 2 beautiful nude girls walk past me. Everything perfect until a 70 year old naked man jogged past me.

You were probably in the Zip, not Pto Angel...just up the hill and around the point from PA.
IIRC, PA has a pier. Zip has nada.

Zipolite

Yep,, your right,, great place to stay for some R&R, and get off the moto for a few days, beer,food, and sites are fantastic, all walking distance. I all so enjoyed Puerto Escondido, checked into a hotel across from playa without even getting off moto.. Great rides from Oaxaca

Thank you everyone for your amazing advice on this thread. It completely changed our route, and we'll be taking all of this advice and when we get specific, we'll be using Crashmaster's detailed advice below to plan our route south of Michocan!

We are very excited. Albuquerque tonight. Tuscon tomorrow. Mexico on Wednesday!

I'll start a RR tonight.

There is plenty of great beach hanging to be done from Michoacan to Oaxaca. The areas around Oaxaca City are great too. A great gem of a place is just northwest of Lazaro Cardenas called Rio Nexpa, a little surf community. Nothing to do but hang out on the beach, surf, fish, and drink cold beer. All kinds of amazing beaches after that as well.

Also, after Salinas Cruz, I would head inland toward Tuxtla, then San Cris, Comitan, cross into Guatemala at La Mesilla instead of the hot dusty zoo like crossing at Tapachula.

If you stay on the coast all the way down, you will be missing the best of Mexico IMO.
