Hola (Ola – Hello) and welcome to the coconuts website, when we opened the company, we did not think about how to name it even for a second. Latin America countires are usually called the Coconut and the Banana republics, due to the large number of palm trees in these parts.
However strange it may sound, the coconut is not a nut, but the fruit, the same as a plum, a peach or an apricot. Coconut is associated a lot with Dominican Republic, originally it was imported and distributed and used here as food for slaves, who worked on the tobacco plantations and sugar cane in huge numbers here .
The slave was given two coconuts a day, the nutritional properties of the coconut fruit and milk were enough for a whole working day and such a feeding was very inexpensive for the landowners. There is a Russian-speaking guide who spent almost a year on coconut in Punta Cana, I mean, he was eating only coconut fruit, drinking coconut milk and water.
As he told his tourists: ” I eat a coconut in the morning and walk all-day cheerful, not hungry and my mood is great. After 8 months of the coconut diet, he lost a lot of weight and his boss set a condition for him, either you start eating normally and get better or look for another job. In any case, the experiment showed that a person can safely eat this wonderful fruit and still manage to work.
After a short biography and our history, I suggest you to get to know “coconuts” from this website and our team better.

Hello, my name is Coconut – BOB and I’m called so because I listen to reggae and reggaeton. I was beaten not so long ago to the shores of Dominican Republic . For more than 10 years I lived in Africa, where I did tourism also. Bad happenings in the country, the tourists were gone and I had to move on. “Coconuts” have an excellent quality that helped us to spread so much around the world, we easily stick to the water without losing our qualities. So it turned out that plunging into the waters of Indian Ocean, I was carried by sea and ocean stream and nailed to Dominican Republic shores. Then I felt like at home – the sea, the warm ocean, the bachata rhythms and the wide people’s smiles, what else is needed for happiness. By combining experience and knowledge, Beep and Bob created this wonderful project, which I hope you will like and your holidays with “coconuts” will be remembered for a long time.
