This tree has weathered many storms and shows the scars of history. It's a gorgeous example of a ceiba tree. It's worth the drive from town. There is also a beautiful beach with shade areas just yards away as well as an outdoor workout gym!

Nice family activity. Good photo opportunity. Wild horses next to the tree. It was a very short activity, 15 minutes - 30 minutes tops.

This tree was impressive and certainly worth a visit if you have an interest in the cultural and spiritual aspects of the island's history.
