Climbing for Coconut

Coconut palm trees are abundant throughout the Caribbean and grow naturally at our nature resort.

Known as the “tree that gives all that is necessary for living” by the East Indians, coconut palms thrive in a tropical environment and produce their first fruit in six to ten years.


Cutting Coconut

Every two months, a member of our maintenance team bravely climbs to the top of the trees and cuts down ripe coconuts.



The Giving Tree

At our eco-resort, there are many uses of the coconut.
