“Best place to stay in Zipolite (Oaxaca beaches)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2009

Zipolite is a cozy boutique hotel at the end of the Zipolite beach. I´ve been there 3 times and always enjoyed a lot. It is one of the "upscale" places to stay in the area. They have both beach cabins and backward lofts (with private terraces overseeing the Pacific), all are vey clean and with a stylish decor. The restaurant is also excellent, great place to dine at the light of the candles on the beach. They serve amazing wood-oven pizzas and sea food.
