Spanish term or phrase: cachimbos
En la playa de enfrente rumiaban acostadas hermosas vacas; guacamayas escondidas en los follajes de los cachimbos charlaban a media voz; y tendida en las ramas altas dormía una partida de monos en perezoso abandono.

cachimbos: árboles corpulentes con flores de color anaranjado

English translation:cachimbo, bacu
Explanation:
Look at the website referenced below. The site is in English and calls the tree a "cachimbo" (as its "common name") but also mentions that it's "international name" is bacu. I would go with cachimbo.
Good luck!

cachimbo


Explanation:
Cachimbo (cariniana domesticata) doesn't appear to have an English name. I would leave it as it is.

CORAL TREE


Explanation:
I take back my previous answer.

I found another site that calls it a coral tree. This is the Erythrina poeppigiana, not the one referenced in the previous two answers, but I think this is the tree you are looking for. This website describes it as a large, branching tree with racimes of orange flowers.

I think this is it.

Suerte!
Jenn
