  • I know this place has importance to some of the local population and offers some nice views of the surrounding countryside but there are nice views pretty much everywhere you go around this area...  more »
  • Unfortunately El Lechero was destroyed by strong winds a week ago and has been reduced to a fraction of the original size.  more »

  • Respectfully, a sacred place for natives, but overhype for tourists. The tree itself is old and has a uniqueness. It's fascinating.. the area around the tree is penned off to keep people from damaging the tree or the grounds around it. Pretty view of the area.
  • Ancient place. Not carefully taken care of.
