The Coconut Man

How much do you tip the coconut man? This social dilemma has never presented itself to me until today.

We were all lazily soaking up the sun by our private pool when a man appeared over the rail and bid us good morning. His job was to trim the coconut and palm trees here at our villa.

He asked if we wanted some coconuts and we all were immediately pictured ourselves drinking a rum drink with a straw from the coconut.

This nice man took time from his work to make our day more fun, our visit more tropical. He opened eight nuts for us and the juice was drunk and replaced with the drinks of choice.

So, I tipped him and he thanked us and we thanked him. This is such a nice place.
