Arbol del Tule

12 reviews of Arbol del Tule


An Overwhelming Tree

Of all the beautiful places in Oaxaca, one of the most extraordinary and unique places to visit is the huge Arbol del Tule tree. And after 2000 years, it's 40 metres tall with a diameter of 52.58 meters, and weighs 509 tons. Located in a town near Oaxaca, called Santa Maria El Tule, it's the area's main attraction. It's considered one of the largest trees in the world (in Oaxaca, they say it is the most) and with a little imagination, you can see many of the "figuaras" in the bark. Nearby is the region's markets offering handicrafts, regional food, snow, and the hospitality of the Santa Maria de Tule people.

The Tule Tree

In this village, about 12 km from Oaxaca, is a very famous tree which is said to be the tree with the largest trunk diameter in the world and with a perimeter of about 42 meters and a height of 40 meters. It is said that at least 30 people are needed to circle the trunk and about 500 people can fit under its shadow. It is a bald cypress of the Sabines group. With the passage of time its branches and trunk have created strange shapes. If you put a little imagination in, you can see actual profiles of animals and people.




There is a lot of people but it’s really awesome.

Beautiful place to walk around and admire landscape.


Craft is expensive though. If you want beauty products go to close towns and you will find quality and cheaper products.
