Another important gift from the ocean to ​​San Blas’ economy is oyster, to prepare the original “Oyster Sopes” , which you can try at the Municipal Market and some palapa restaurants on Borrego Beach and Matanchén. Do not miss them!

The bream or tilapia, is also noteworthy, it was introduced to Mexico in the sixties from Africa and today is one of the most popular species, especially for its great flavor when prepared fried.

Similarly, another important feature that has given an advantage to growing tilapia or bream is that it can develop in fresh or salt water, which has allowed to grow along with other species such as shrimp and oysters, among others. This is why is so important to preserve the mangroves that protect our shores.
