It was a bit hard to find, but it is this gated area with the ceiba tree in the middle and some other plants and benches surrounding it. Nice to look at if you have the time; the tree is pretty impressive.

Considered the oldest Cieba tree in existence, it has survived the test of time and stands tall as evidence of perseverance and pride.

Its a beautiful tropical area, the park is very small; but then you have Parque de la Ceiba. It is really an impressive tree, you can sit and enjoy. No rum and coke you need to walk somewhere.

A park with a huge ceiba tree suffering a fungal infestation. Unfortunately, this century old tree is slowly dying off.
