What did YOU call it???
 
I don't know about you, but we couldn't remember what the heck to call these things....and ofcourse they got referred to many times, daily.......lol, we came up with "CHALUPA".....:confused_
"Did you put our towels by the Chalupa".....lol. Just having a laugh and wondered what other names its gone by? Care to share your version?

Until I knew they had a name I referred to them as tiki huts. Palapa sounds like an appetizer at a restaurant :)

We say chickees too, but I was told on our last trip that ONLY Playa Linda calls them that. Glad to see Elaine does too. :tounge_sm

Palapa if you want to be proper...hut is more common. We just got home last night, and this morning (due to wishful thinking)...my hubby got up and said.."Should I go get our hut? hahahahahaha...

I can do that! Chalupa....lollypop.....lol, who knew? I actually DID get it from the Taco Bell Chalupa which is a delicious terrible thing to eat....we just couldn't remember that Palapa word everytime so we went with Chalupa....lol. Looks like hut and chickees are the way to go...:island:

I call them Palapas, but for some reason my husband can never remember that word and ends up calling them Talapias :rolleyes:
