Playa Zipolite (Mexico) – Drowning
Although this beach is well-known for its beauty, seclusion, and laid-back hippie vibe, its powerful rip currents have resulted in numerous drownings.
A volunteer lifeguard force has been on duty since 1995 to help with the issue, and flags on the beach designate swimming-specific danger zones.

Although it’s breathtaking, take precautions because the U.S. Geological Survey warns that steam vents can shoot hot lava jets and fling rocks a long way.
