Guanacaste (tree)
Enterolobium cyclocarpum, commonly known as Guanacaste, Caro Caro, or Elephant Ear Tree, is a species of flowering tree in the pea family, Fabaceae, that is native to tropical regions of the Americas, from central Mexico south to northern Brazil (Roraima) and Venezuela. It is known for its large proportions, its expansive, often spherical crown, and its curiously shaped seedpods. The abundance of this tree, especially in Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica, where it is prized for the shady relief it provides from the intense sun, coupled with its immensity, have made it a widely recognized species. It is the national tree of Costa Rica.
In North America it is often called elephant ear tree, due to the shape of the seed pods. Other common names include Devil's Ear and Earpod Tree, parota and orejón (Spanish) or huanacaxtle (Nahuatl). In El Salvador, it is known as conacaste.

Today Costa Rica celebrates the Día de la Anexión de Guanacaste, which happened in 1824 - as per request by the population (before you get your knickers in a twist about the possibility of celebrating a hostile take-over).  After all, the Guanacastecos' slogan goes: "De la patria por nuestra voluntad" But enough of politics.
