Daniella Hunter is a holistic food innovator, hotelier, and entrepreneur.  Her conscious living brands, The Real Coconut, and Sanara Tulum Hotel, have received impressive accolades and The Real Coconut is expanding into the US with the opening of further restaurants, and a retail product line, available in Whole Foods, from January 2017.  

Having followed her own journey towards healing from severe asthma as a child, and a lifetime of poor health, Daniella delved into many different diet and cleanse programs to seek the answers for a vital life, both for herself and to share with others. Left a little less than satisfied, she formulated her own philosophy of digestive health and sustainability, both personally and for the planet.  And so The Real Coconut was birthed.

Daniella lives in Tulum, Mexico, with her partner, Charlie, two sons, and dog, Milky.  She has taken on the role of director of the Belize Sustainable Development Corporation and dedicates her free time to wildlife rehabilitation, and as a Co-Founder and Governor of the Tulum International School, providing a passion and inquiry-based curriculum to children in Tulum.
