How to Get Coconuts off the Tree

1. Watch out for danger.
2. Nail pieces of wood to the palm tree's trunk, tree-house style.
3.  Climb tree.
4.  Check out the coconuts.
5.  Pick a coconut. 

6. Drop the coconut.
7.  Reacquaint yourself with step 1 -- watch out for DANGER in the "coconut drop area."
8.  Check out the pile of coconuts.  Apparently they got about 105 from this tree! 

9.  Creep over while dudes with machetes hack open the coconuts.

10.  Act like a clueless tourist and ask to see what the inside of the coconut looks like. 

11.  Drink the coconut water inside the coconut.

12.  Relax by the pool for the rest of the afternoon.


  1. Ooooh, jealous of your coconut curiosity! Hope the coconut was yummy!

  2. The coconut water was interesting... hot and slighlty sweet. Sadly I did not have a machete and couldn't hack open the rest of it to get all the yummy coconut meat inside -- although I definitely attempted (unsuccessfully) butchering it myself with a kitchen knife... hahahaha. But definitely a fun adventure!
