Zipolite contrasts with our hotel Bahia de la Luna. Busier - catering for surfers and apparently nudists too! Quite the contrast. Was well served at Place on the Beach where no-one does anything

Beach located near Puerto Angel, a little far, at 1 hour driving from Huatulco. Although the beach is nice, I wouldn’t recommend to make the trip. There are a few rustic shops, but not so good. There aren´t nice shops or restaurants. I noticed this...More
