|Sunset and surf at Zipolite|
In fact, literally translated, Zipolite means ‘Death Beach’ for this very reason! I’m not sure my video quite gets across how big and powerful the waves are, but it’s certainly an impressive sight.
Even on the beaches, where it is safe to swim, the waves can still be huge and you still need to take care – on occasion we watched numerous people being caught unaware and washed in to the shore by a set of big waves – in addition to surfers who couldn’t even get out to where the waves were breaking as they kept being washed in!

Not us though, for it’s time to go back over the mountains to Mexico City, ready for our flight to Costa Rica - I’ll write again from there.
