This was an interesting stop during a full day of touring. The beauty of this old, knarly giant was breath taking. You don't need a lot of time but it is worth a visit.
We went with my kids who are 5 and 7. My 5 year old was dying to see such an old tree! It was not very far from the zocalo and we took a taxi. The tree was beautiful and it's a cute, small town. You can't really spend more than an hour there, max, but it's worth it.
For only ten pesos you get to walk around this incredibly interesting tree. It is called the tree of life. It is the biggest tree in the world. For some it is a fun activity, and for others it is a spiritual experience. It is a beautiful backdrop for some marvelous pictures. For some it is a fifteen minute activity,... More
The tree is gigantic, it's really impressive! It's best to go there on the way to visit Mitla / Hierve el Agua or if you're leaving Oaxaca to go to San Cristobal. It's a 10 minute stop, the entrance costs 10 pesos. They are taking care of this place, taking care of the gardens outside, there's a handicrafts market, it's... More

The darling white and blue church which sits in the square (and which is dwarfed by the tule tree) is worth a visit, too. You don't... More
Really impressive - much bigger in real life than in the pictures. A section of the bark looks like a lion's head and we also spotted an elephant (apparently there is a crocodile too, but we couldn't see that one). Apparently it has the widest trunk in the world and it is over 2000 years old. The tree is in... More
It's a tree. A really big tree in a well kept and great setting. I'm not sure I would make a trip out of Oaxaca just for this tree but it is on the way to other sights and it is well worth the stop. It's the biggest tree base you are ever going to see in your life!
