    Tule Tree in a serene village
    I came to visit this giant tree as part of a tour. There is an entrance fee. There is a fence around this giant beast so you cannot get up and close but it’s beautiful to look at. Not a lot in close vicinity to see asides from this so it was off the bus for a few photos before leaving!

    It’s all about the trunk. USD$1 well worth it!
    It’s all about the tree trunk, Went to see the Tule tree and it was pouring rain. Saw the tree from outside and saw that it was big. Fortunately we waited for the rain to stop and paid to USD$1 to see the tree.. it was definitely worth it. The girth of the tree is amazing.

    Hard to Get a Taxi Back to Central Oaxaca from
    Came here via DiDi Rider, a taxi app, on a Wednesday afternoon in early July 2023. The tree was beautiful and was part of the church property which was fenced off. You need to buy tickets to get up close to it where there was another smaller fence preventing people from touching or climbing it. The tickets were MX$20 per person. The tree is over 2,000 years old and there is another younger tree that is about 1,000 years old on the south side of the church. Great place to visit if you have some time to kill. You can even hire a tour guide, which we didn't do. We were staying in the center of Oaxaca and it was surprisingly difficult to hail a cab back. Most taxi drivers wouldn't take us to the center. The taxis were all red and white and are based in Tule. Thankfully, we eventually found someone willing to take us. Make sure you negotiate the cost before getting into the cab. Ours came out to MX$150.

We almost missed the tree but I'm so glad that we didn't! It's truly amazing and not to be missed.

It was a good experience, I mean after all it's one of the widest trees that exists in Mexico (as far as we know).
But to me the area surrounding the tree was very dirty and cluttered. There were so many people you could barely appreciate it.
Overall it was a good experience. The tree is magnificent, totally worth the visit!

Beautiful town of El Tule. Only cost 10 $ peso on the bus from the beisbol stadium. 10$ to get in to see the amazing tree. Fantastic manicured gardens and beautiful plants. Loved it.

Impressive- in age and size. Has witnessed a lot! Not a ton to see but great to see and soak in nonetheless. Worthwhile visit

Beautiful tree in a serene setting. A small fee to get close, but cannot touch the trunk. We saw as part of a tour. Would not have wanted to miss when in the area.

Never saw anything like it - have been to the General Sherman tree in Sequoia National Park and that was massive and tall - the trunk of this tree dwarfs everything else! Glad it was on our way back from Hierve el Agua and we got a chance to see it.

The tree itself is very impressive and is bordered by a pretty plaza and garden. Well worth the short trip out of the city.
