cocos for sale

Around the island you will see vendors selling coconuts at roadside stands or out of trucks parked along the road. The owners will remove the top of a young, green coconut with a machete and give you a straw to drink the coconut water inside. True local performance art with a sweet reward. Coconut water is the opaque liquid that comes straight from the inside of a young (unripened) coconut. Coconut water from green coconuts contains electrolytes, is naturally fat free, has less sugar, less sodium and more potassium than most sports drinks, and is delicious!
