Yesterday I grabbed a green coconut from a tree near the university del caribe. When I got home, I made the nut into a cup, added some rum & nestle lime & drank a bit..
Later, I met a guy who told me not to eat/drink from coconuts on the Atlantic coast; only Pacific coconuts are ok, he said. I asked why & he said something about bugs (or germs).
I thk he's bonkers (& i haven't gotten sick, so far).. just wondering if anyone knows what he's on about. I assume that, eg, giardia/cryptosporidium cysts in the ground water cant get into the coconut water??
