Entry fee is only $40 pesos and its a pleasant way to spend an hour or so. We enjoyed the history of the Olmec statues and liked that the desciptions were in both English and Spanish. It was fun to see little wild lemurs running about even if they were raiding the trash bins! The 'zoo' animals are bit sad... More

Being interested in Olmec culture were visited. It was good to see the heads. The animals were a bit of a waste of time and not relevant!

The park combined a zoo of sorts with a historical park. Most of the artifacts were from or replicates from the actual La Vents archeological site, which is located out of town, and they were all presented well with signage in English and Spanish. The animals were all a little bit sad, but it was fun to see the 4... More

This is a combination zoo, park and archeological site in Villahermosa. The Mayan & Olmec statues and exhibits have been taken from many locations in the Tabasco and Chiapas areas.

La Venta is the famous park in the city of Villahermosa. Everywhere in the park you can admire the famous gigantic Olmec heads. It surely is an unforgettable experience! The park itself is also a beautiful place, because of its settings in a jungle-like park. You can see monkeys and other little animals being around and also at the little... More

The zoo part of the park is nothing special, but the museum of prehistoric man is very good. There are not many museums I have been to that explain the history of Olmecs. The colosal heads are beautiful and worth the trip by themselves.
