Set in the white, sandy beaches of Costa Rica, the story holds an inspiring adventure that will put their friendship to the test. What is this great adventure and how will it unfold? Who is the tall, strange man with the big black car? What does he want with Jose’s father, the fisherman? What’s going to happen to Jose, the coconut? Come along with Jose, the fisherman’s son; and his best friend, Jose, the coconut; and follow their many adventures in the beautiful coasts of Costa Rica.
