    Climbing coconut trees seems like quite a work out…and it sounds a bit painful too!

  4. Love it! One of the highlights of Central America for me was drinking the juice out of coconuts that were opened up with a machete.

      Yep! I have video of it but no good video editing software, so I can’t post it on the blog. Definitely something you almost have to see to believe, though!
