Zipolite Mexico: Cafe Maya is the best place you’re going to find – and it’s right on the beach!
Ever dreamed of an escape to Playa Zipolite beach? Well the Zipolite news is in everyone, I’ve found the very best places you can possibly stay in Zipolite Mexico – and it’s even affordable.
Located directly on the beach – seriously, I’m looking at the waves roll in as I type these words – Cafe Maya Zipolite in Mexico is an absolute dream. I first found the place three years ago when I was hitchhiking down through Mexico, looking for an awesome clothing optional place. Okay, I’ll be honest; I wasn’t really looking for a clothing optional location – I was looking to run away from my ex who I’d just split with back up in Sayulita Mexico. A friend I’d been couchsurfing with up in Sayulita was headed on down to Playa Zipolite beach, and I was intrigued; the only clothing optional beach in Mexico you say? I’d only gone topless once or twice in my life before, but I wanted to check it out. Plus, I was going through a breakup, of course I wanted somewhere with a friend. While the hotels themselves are not clothing optional, the entire beach is, and the best hotels are on the beach – just like Cafe Maya Zipolite.
I didn’t need to look into the Zipolite news to find out where the best place was; nah, instead I started searching for a place to camp out. I looked for a while, but I had transcription work to do – as it was how I earned my meager income at the time – so I settled down at a restaurant that had good wifi. Excellent, perhaps they’ll let me camp here. Wrong. They soon, however, pointed me in the direction of Cafe Maya on Playa Zipolite Mexico, where – at that time – they accepted campers. These days the place has four beautiful rooms to sleep in, each with private bathrooms at incredibly reasonable prices – especially for a clean beautiful room right on the beach, with a Cafe downstairs! While the Cafe goes by the name of Cafe Maya, named after the owner’s husband’s daughter, the actual accommodation is called Casa Acalli for their son. A beautiful tribute in Zipolite Mexico.
Cafe Maya Zipolite serves amazing food at an affordable cost – and oh my god, if you get the chance to try Kate’s signature sushi, do it! Imagine that – sitting in a hammock on a beach in Mexico eating delicious sushi. It’s a rarity to find sushi in Mexico, let alone sushi in Zipolite Mexico.
I’ve come back about five times over the last three years, finding solace in this beautiful place. I spend half my days working on the computer, gazing out at the waves as they roll in, and the other half lounging in a hammock in on Playa Zipolite – right under the shade of Cafe Maya, sand beneath me. So if you’re looking for beach accommodation in Zipolite Mexico, look not to the Zipolite news; you’ve already found the spot: Cafe Maya is where it’s at.
If you love the idea of clothing optional beaches then you need to check this place out. Pin it for later so you can remind yourself
