The Ceiba Tree Park - Vieques, Puerto Rico

The Ceiba Tree is one of the most beloved trees in Puerto Rico.  Vieques has a very special Ceiba Tree that’s a little over three centuries old.  This tree has become sort of a sacred site for locals and a must-visit for visitors.  A group of volunteers from the community created a nature park, a great place for adults and children alike with spacious grounds and informative posters on the Ceiba Tree.
