What are the Best Foods to Snack on in a Caribbean Hammock.

The ideal Caribbean Hammock snack should be a few key things:

  • Not messy: Avoid foods with drippy sauces, crumbles easily, or has a strong smell that might attract unwanted insects.
  • Easy to eat with one hand: This keeps your other hand free for swaying gently in the hammock.
  • Portable: You don't want a heavy meal to lug to your hammock spot.

Here are some delicious and hammock-friendly Caribbean options:

  • Fresh tropical fruit: Think sliced mango, pineapple, papaya, or guava. These are refreshing, light, and require no prep work.
  • Coconut water: A natural hydrator right from the tropics.
  • Plantain chips: Salty, crunchy, and typically sold in resealable bags for easy transport.
  • Jerk chicken or pork skewers: These bite size snaks can be prepped ahead of time and eaten cold or at room temperature.
  • Small sandwiches: Opt for pre-made tea sandwiches or ones on crusty bread that won't crumble.
  • Local pastries: Many Caribbean islands have delicious savory or sweet pastries that are perfect for a hammock snack. Just be mindful of fillings that might get messy.

No matter what you choose, enjoy your delicious hammock snack and the beautiful Caribbean surroundings and if all goes well take an amazing nap.
