There is a legend that says why the Chechem and Chaka trees always grow side by side (you won't find them separate from each other, that's true i saw!!).
Chechem was an evil Mayan prince who was turned into a tree by the Gods. As he was bad he turned the sap of the tree into poison. Chaca was his good-hearted brother and turned himself into a tree. The sap of the Chaca tree has healing powers. That's why you will always find them side-by-side in jungle.
