In Santa Maria del Tule a legendary ahueheute (cypress) is a must-go natural attractive. This 2000 years old three has a 14.36 meters diameter and is more than 40 meters high. If you wanted to hugh the trunk, you'd need at least 30 people with their arms wide open.
The funniest part of this attraction is the explanation kids from Santa Maria give. They have founded all sorts of forms in the trunk, like crocodiles, lions, bears, faces, gnomes and many more.
