“The world's thickest tree”

El Árbol del Tule (Spanish for The Tree of Tule) is a tree located in the church grounds in the town center of Santa María del Tule in the Mexican state of Oaxaca, approximately 9 km east of the city of Oaxaca on the road to Mitla. It is a Montezuma cypress (Taxodium mucronatum), or ahuehuete (meaning "old man of the water" in Nahuatl). It has the stoutest trunk of any tree in the world. In 2001 it was placed on a UNESCO tentative list of World Heritage Sites.

Not really worth it...yeah it's a massive, crazy old tree and all that but that's literally all it is, with a big crowd of people standing around taking pictures. Your time around Oaxaca is much better spent elsewhere...Etla and Hierve el Agua are way cooler.
