The Ceibas are very typical trees in Central America and Africa that we find on Alalibre’s frequent trails to the beaches and waterfalls. They reach up to 70 meters in height and their trunk reaches 3 meters in diameter. They usually develop spines when they are young.
The Ceibas are sacred to the Yoruba, Nahua, Mayan and Bahamian peoples. The word Ceiba comes from a Bahamian word to describe boats made from this tree.
In the Mayan cosmovisión, the ceiba or sacred Yaaxché connects the three planes of the Universe.
