Sad state of the Ceiba tree

Really sad to look at this majestic tree so deteriorated. Ten years ago it was amazing. I would only recommend visiting this tree if you hold dear memories of it.

The Tree was tall and had leaves. Bark was a greyish color and the grass was green around it. Looked kind of dead, but it just have been the lighting. Not really sure why we went there and looked at it, i have a lot of trees in my back yard, might right a review about those next.

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.

I kept driving by Comercio Street, but couldn't find it. Luckily, I found the address online - Parque de Ceiba. You really only need 5 minutes to check out this huge tree. When I went, part of the tree was gone...maybe it is too fragile or that top part was too far ruined - not sure. If you are in... More

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.

Not much to do here, other than look at a giant tree. That being said, it's worth a stop if you can fit it in your plans. The thing is really massive.
