Coastal Region Of Mexico

Coastal Region Of Mexico

The costal regions of Mexico are found on both sides of the country. The states that lie in this region include Colima, Veracruz, Michoacan, Sonora, Baja California Sur and Nayanit. In these coastal regions there were no original pre-Hispanic civilizations like in some other regions, however since the coastal regions run straight down the side of Mexico some parts f the coastal regions have some influences on their food. Some of these states include the ones close to Yucatan, Chihuhua and Tamaulipas.

The coastal regions of Mexico are very famous for the seafood that they produce and share around the country. Almost all their cuisine depends on the seafood that is pulled in from the ocean. Mexican fisherman hunt for many different types of marine animals and crustaceans including:

  • Shark

    Tacos Fritos Con Cangrejo (fried tortillas with crab)

  • Fish
  • Prawns
  • Lobster
  • Crab
  • Scallops and Clams

Having a vast supply of the animals above and being so close to the ocean effects the overall Mexican cuisine majorly. Modern Mexican cuisine now has lots of seafood dishes, sauces and drinks. Since the coastal regions of Mexico have more water than open plains the cuisine in those place has a lot of seafood but not much livestock meat like beef, pork and lamb and also a lack of tropical fruits because there is nowhere to grow them.
