Dat’s a lotta coconuts! These are just the pile, the vendor has the ones for drinking in coolers on ice, the sign reads “Iced coco, 1.50”. So the coconuts stay chilled, and the guy expertly hacks one open for you on demand with about 3 deft strokes of a machete, gives you a straw, and you drink the water from inside. I absolutely adore it, it’s one of the things I’m going to miss dearly when we come back to the states.
