Back From The Brink
  Dune Buggy Update: To make a long story short, the engine needs to be replaced. Bottom line is a refurbished engine installed is going to cost us $12,500 pesos (about $1000USD). AND we are without a buggy for a week. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to La Patrona Polo Club for letting us use their UTV "MULA" at night!! So although this is bad news, at least we are not patrolling the beach on foot AND we have a way to haul sand to and from the beach now. We are sooo grateful for that!!!!
   20 turtles last night. But 4 nests got poached on Questos. Thank you again La Patrona Polo Club for lending us the "Mula" while the buggy gets repaired. Nest count=1,068

Crazy for Coconut Oil 

  Until recently, coconut oil has had a very bad reputation.  Many accused coconut oil of causing weight gain, heart disease and more due to its high content of saturated fats. The truth? Studies in tropical communities now show that coconut oil is actually a powerful healing food that is wonderfully good for us!  Lucky  

for us in San Pancho, coconuts are ubiquitous. Here are 3 great reasons why you might want to start adding coconut oil to your shopping list.      


1. Coconut Oil supports metabolism and weight loss.  Yes, coconut oil is a fat, but it won't make you fat! Coconut oil is actually a high quality fatty acid that can make you leaner and more energetic!  Coconut oil not only gives your thyroid a healthy boost, it is also converted directly to energy instead of being stored as fat.  Many people are turning to coconut oil for weight loss and increased energy.  


2. Coconut Oil is a natural moisturizer. In addition to having loads of health benefits when consumed, coconut oil is also a treat to the skin. Skip processed, expensive body lotions and go for coconut oil instead. Coconut oil also has anti-aging benefits, and can help protect the skin from free radicals, which can cause skin to look older and more tired.  It'll make you smell nice too!  


3. Coconut Oil is great for cooking.  Cooking with coconut oil not only adds a nice tropical flavor to your food; it is also one of the healthiest oils to cook with.  Many other kinds of vegetable oils go rancid when heated. This is not a good thing; rancid oil can cause a variety of health issues.  Alternatively, when coconut oil is exposed to heat, it's been found to resist mild heat damage and maintain its wonderful health qualities. Coconut oil is great for stir-frying, baking, etc.
