Hey Leo this one's for you!!! Just found this perusing old Ambergris Today issues.....

hugs man....


Coconut is the most important fruit in the tropics for it gives precious water full of potassium and other minerals. The young flesh looks like yogurt and is delicious. The old flesh is hard and can be good to eat in small quantities, or is a great addition to various dishes; coconuts also have some medicinal properties.

The juice of green coconuts (immature fruits) is recommended for heart, liver and kidney disorders, as well as gonorrhea. In case of dehydration, it can be mixed with some lime juice. Even though coconuts are delicious and good for you, they can be quite dangerous should one fall on your head.

So whether you want to prevent coconuts from falling on your head or savor the juice, there is just one minor problem: climbing the tree, it takes a lot of skill. This is where a professional tree climber, who goes by the name Leo Martinez “Coconut Leo”, comes in handy. He is also known as the local tree doctor.

“Coconut Leo” doesn’t only climb the trees but he gives a spectacular show while doing it, providing he has an audience. He does astonishing tricks while climbing the tree. Then he brings down the juicy coconuts and cuts them for his clientele to enjoy.

Thumbs up to Coconut Leo who posses a talent (or skill) you don’t see in many places, but you’ll find him here on the island. So next time you are out on the beach be on the look out for Coconut Leo.

Doesn't mention the show he does at Fido's at around, say, midnight after "x" amount of beers....makes me sweat just thinking about it.

I saw him limping around town about a week or so ago, he had some sort of bandage on his foot or ankle.
