Learn to extract coconut oil from fresh coconuts on this hands-on adventure in a local's home. With a guide to make all the necessary introductions, scrape out fresh coconuts to create aromatic oil perfect for rejuvenating dry skin, and then take part in an arts and crafts activity sure to leave you with a one-of-a-kind souvenir.

Get picked up from your Saipan hotel and ride out to a local's home. When you arrive, head inside and meet your host, a member of the Chamorro people (indigenous to the Mariana islands) and a coconut oil expert. Find out how to crack open fresh coconuts and extract the meat inside, and then turn that tasty white flesh into velvety smooth oil used in everything from beauty products to cooking.

Afterward, get the chance to learn a new skill with a fun, hands-on craft. Depending on the day, you might stamp out keepsake postcards using parts of a banana tree, knit the leaves of a palm together for a unique creation, or make beads perfect for crafting jewelry.

Extremely kind family! Would also recommend the WWII tour as it is the same company. Gordon and Bina take great care to educate those not of CNMI with respect and dignity.
