what is the translation of "sabila"? Is it really just "aloe vera"? I got directions to a friend's house in Vera Cruz and she said the trees in front of her house are "mucho sabilas". "A lot of aloe vera" doesn't really make any sense...

I didn't find sabila in this dictionary. It directed me to sibila.

Aloe, también llamado áloe, sábila o Aloë, es un género de plantas suculentas de la familia Asphodelaceae con alrededor de 400 especies.

Sabila is just another name for Aloe. It is that plant with big "spiky", succulent, green leaves.
