When we were in Costa Rica, we went to a town called Corozalito. There, we went to a beach. DEVANY wanted to really find one and eat one. Thus, making it our ultimate goal to taste and see a "Costa Rican" coconut. So we all tried to find the best coconut we could find along the trip. One day, we went to a beach in Corozalito. We couldn't get any from the trees because they were too high. BUT we could get some from the ground. So we searched on the ground. I took us a while until we found the perfect... COCO. It was love at first sight ;) We had no idea how to open it. So it traveled with us for about 5 days in our tour bus. Everywhere we stopped, we asked if they could open COCO with a machete. They said no because it would BREAK the machete. So around the last days of our trip, we painted a pool at this local high school. One of the guys there, cut it open with his machete. Surprisingly, it didn't break the machete. So when Coco died, everybody had a little piece and said good bye.
