place to set out permanent cages to grow
Ostiones (oysters) and clams.
We can choose this sweet,
tender delicacy, grown and
harvested mere yards from where
they are prepared
and served or from many other selections
of fresh seafood.
Afterward it is on to New Kino to visit the Seri Indian Museum and
some of the street vendors in the area. This is a wonderful opportunity
to shop for Ironwood carvings and baskets from the
The Seri Indians created this art and depict indigenous animals
and plants. Sea Turtles, Dolphins and Sea Lions are most common
They are the finest although many of the Mexican made carvings
are beautiful too! The Seri baskets are among the finest in the
world and if you can find one the price will reflect the scarcity.

Paella on the beach or at Mariscos Judy and truly savor
another blissful night in this
