This is a huge tree where Adiáct, cacique (chief) of the Subtiava tribe during the Spanish conquest, was unceremoniously hanged so his people would see him as weak. Today ‘The Big Tamarindo’ is a rallying point for indigenous locals, who placed a plaque there in 2003 that declares ‘This tree was the cross of he who is our light.'
