Magnificent Ceiba trees, called Yaxche by the ancient Maya, abound consistent with the caves and general Mayan flavour of the property. Yaxche or Tree of Life, represents the axis mundi, the stable world center or the bridge between heaven, earth, and the underworld as the Maya saw it. The roots of the Ceiba tree reach down into the caves systems and are also said to shelter bats, symbolic of the underworld. Yaxche, The Tree of life adorn the property.
