If you’re seeking a respite from the party scene in Rocky Point, we suggest a trip to the Oyster Farms of Puerto Penasco, Mexico. Oysters are brought in fresh from the bay, cleaned, and then prepared for visitors. You can hire a qualified tour guide to escort you around the Oyster Farm, and provide some interesting facts about bivalves. Moreover, the oyster farm has an excellent dining area equipped with a bar that serves cheap tequila. This of course will rope you back in to Rocky Point’s party scene which is not the worst the thing in the world.

Bivalves refers to the class in which oysters are subjugated. Bivalves are comprised of laterally compressed bodies enclosed by shells consisting of two hinged parts. The word comes from the Latin bis (two) and valvae (door). Under the genus bivalve are the species clams, oysters, cockles, muscles and scallops. These simple facts will all be included while touring the oyster farm. But more importantly, every tour includes access to fresh oysters. And, if you find a pearl you can keep it. Let us add that you can keep the shells of the oysters. Why? One might ask. Well, oysters can be used to make jewelry. It was said that Achilles’ mother gave him an oyster necklace before he pushed off to sack Troy and make history.

When consuming oysters, we recommend a splash of hot sauce, even though oysters could easily be consumed without a garnish or spice. For those oyster virgins out there, the tour includes a tutorial for preparing oysters, cleaning them, and eating them. Expect the visit to take up half a day. Booze is also available on the tour of Puerto Penasco’s Oyster Farm, which will no doubt bring out the best in the oysters, both in taste and the nourishment of the libido.
