2007 Mar.

Paul and I, travelling South, turned West, off Hwy. 200, just North of the junction to Oaxaca.

If you were travelling North you would turn at the Oaxaca junction.

Of course, then, you would reach Mazunte last, rather than first, of the communities along this road.

(Paved, rural, road.)
THIS ROAD LEADS TO PUERTO ANGEL
(Downhill past some buildings)
BUT FIRST WE GO THROUGH A COUPLE OF SMALL COMMUNITIES

(Downhill past some buildings.)
(signs, Mazunte, turtles.)

Mazunte is the home of La Centro Mexicano de la Tortuga, the Mexican Marine Turtle Center.

Many years ago Mazunte was an important turtle harvesting center. The; shells, oil, and meat, of the turtles was used for many purposes.

Now Mazunte concentrates on preserving what they had once helped drive to extinction.

DON'T MESS WITH MY TURTLES OR I WILL BE FORCED TO WAKE UP
(3 young senoritas walking along side of road.)

We passed through Mazunte on our way to Puerto Angel and came back later, late on Sunday, but the turtle farm closes at 4 PM on Sunday.

(Paved, rural, road.)
THE ROAD LEADS TO PUERTO ANGEL
(Paved, rural, road.)
THE ROAD CONTINUES ON, WINDING, NARROW, UP HILL, AND DOWN DALE

If you like lovely scenery, or wish to get to Zipolite, or Puerto Angel, carry on.

If you just want to go to Oaxaca or Huatulco, it is quicker to turn back, to Hwy. 200.

2007 Mar.

Paul and I, travelling South, from Mazunte, came across, well we didn't have much choice, the road goes through the middle of town, Zipolite.

Zipolite was once noted for the harvesting of sea turtles. But, now, is famous for its surfing and quite, out of the way, style of life.

SAN AGUSTINILLO

First the road goes through Playa San Agustinillo, and past Pina Palmera.

(Road curves over a hill, ocean in the background.)

Playa San Agustinillo, is a favoured spot for fly fishing as well as a quite beach for swimming.

(Workers lay foundations.)
(Open air restaurant.)

Between each little settlement is several kilometers of road which don't seem to be on any maps.

I think, not too long ago, this road was a dusty trail.

    On a Sunday, in every town, in Mexico, you will find a; basketball, &/or, soccer game.

    ZIPOLITE

    Of course, we had to stop, in Zipolite, so Paul, an avid sports fan, could watch the soccer game.

    (Palm trees along the street.)

    And, lastly, we went past Playa Del Amor, the nudist beach.

    (Country road.)

    No, I didn't stop and take pictures.
