Gifting, the transfer of something without the expectation of receiving something in return.
Generosity, the quality of being kind.
Charity, the voluntary giving of help to those in need.
The Coconut Traveler and its clients embody the belief that GIVING offers support and comes from a place of caring.
The gift of time volunteered to benefit a program
The gift of sharing your expertise and experience
The gift of resources to restore a fish pond or eradicate invasive resources
GIVING means different things to different people.
It’s an emotion.
It’s a sense of responsibility.
It’s paying it forward.
Scientists maintain that it’s even good for you, releasing endorphins in the brain that create that positive, feel-good feeling.
The Coconut Traveler creates experiences that forge relationships between kama’aina (people of the land), locals (residents), malihini (strangers and newcomers), and visitors. We share. We experience. We give back.
By carefully choosing our partners—including everyone from our private jet provider to biologists, environmentalists, and small, locally-owned businesses—we ensure every piece of your journey inspires you and sustains the local community, economy, and environment.
