Default 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".....
"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?


Palapa

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