So Now I’m the Proud Owner of 4 Coconut Trees…

A few more pics from our weekend in Chabihau. We stopped by our land to do some scouting, and ended up getting some coconuts from our palm trees. (Ok, Jorge and his cousin got them while I took pictures.)

 

Back at Jorge’s aunt’s house, my suegro was kind enough to grab his machete and chop open a hole in one of the coconuts so we could try some coconut water.

 

I was pretty proud because everyone was saying how our coconut water was some of the sweetest they’d ever had! I drank it straight this time, but Jorge’s uncles tell me it tastes great with ice and vodka. Duly noted.

 

My suegro was in the mood for some carne de coco (the inside part that you eat… not sure what it’s called in English), so he carved some out and ate it during the car ride back to Cancun.

 

Have you guys tried fresh coconut water before? 

The Cancun Hilton Golf Course

On Saturday I went with Juan, Viri and Jorge to play some golf at the Hilton. We’re too poor to actually play the course, but for $150 pesos a person (about $12) we got unlimited balls for the driving range and putting green. Just for the opportunity to be at that beautiful course was worth every peso!

I’ve played a few times before, but I’ve never been very good. Saturday was Jorge’s first time playing and he did pretty well, considering nobody has taught him how to swing.

The driving range

We ended up playing for over 3 hours! The weather was perfect… sunny with a breeze. Hopefully we’ll get back there soon.
