The fruits are tasty and full of juice ( litchee, mango, banana, papaya, pineaple...). Every good meal must start by an aperitive the traditional "punch" (rhum with fruit juice) or the "ti punch" ( rhum with a fresh green lemon juice or some sugar cane sirup) and the meal must end up by the "rhum arrangé" (rhum in which ginger, or vanilla, or, canella leaves have been left for scourging) and then a good siesta is recomended !
