We overnighted here to see the Olmeca heads. The park is well done and was not crowded. Signage was adequate. My son liked the zoo. Free parking.

A nice place introductory for a wider visit to the region near the downtown of Villahermosa, close to the river and a walking in the open air museum, with shops inside of typical handcrafts

You'll know the Olmec culture and see the legacy they left the people of southeast Mexico. You can also see and buy crafts from the region.

The pieces from the Olmec culture are so beautiful and interesting. There's a magical night light show inside the museum.You can take a walk in the park after visiting the... More
