So I was recently in the Yucatan Peninsula, and planted a tree at a local botanical garden. Unfortunately, the regular guide was sick, and the person that was filling in for him didn't know much about the trees themselves.
I was wondering if anyone would be able to identify the tree for me, I took a couple of photos while I was there.

it also resembles avocado to me, young seedling with reddish stem, bet I believes there are plenty other possibilities

I agree that it resembles an Avocado so it might be one of the many Persea native to that area.
