About Lyoban Hostel.

Lyoban is a Zapotec word and refers to a sacred place where the "Hombres nube" ancient inhabitants of the mountains and central valleys of Oaxaca, sought to achieve the highest level of spirituality, maintaining inner peace and balance day to day.

The main activity in Zipolite is just relax in an atmosphere of freedom, very quiet, large space facing the sea and lives in peace with nature.
It is something that many of our visitors have described as "a magical world" away from any civilization consumerism.

Nudism optional activity that characterizes Zipolite (which is practiced only on the beach) reflects and represents a free and respectful attitude to all people and respect for a natural lifestyle. This is not exactly a beach for families and children, although they are welcome, and is not a family beach because in recent years visitors have made this beach a special place for young people who like to "be and let be."

Here you can do nothing and just rest all day in a hammock, thinking, seeing the ocean or reading a good book that if you don’t have with you you can borrow from our library where you’ll find books in different languages and issues.

But if you're the kind of person who likes to be active here as in Zipolite Lyoban and its surroundings will find a variety of different activities.
In Lyoban we have:
Ping Pong
Board Games
Wireless Internet
Bonfire night
Val Beach Volleyball

In Zipolite, depending on the season you can find other activities such as:
A boat Trip - to see whales, turtles and dolphins
Sand castles on the beach
Fishing and walks
Museum of Sea Turtles
Different festivals in the Year, as well as the traditional New Year.
