La Venta offered us a good view on the precolumbian area. We had a guide (otherwise you get few information, although there is some in English) and were drawn to quite some details, paid off this way.

It was a fun visit especially the section with animals from the region. The archeological park (the actual ruins are someplace else) was mediocre, don't have very much information and feels abandoned. Apparently they have a light show at night during certain seasons, all the...More

My favorite part of the visit was the wild coatis that roam the grounds - the first time I've ever seen them. I also greatly enjoyed the zoo, particularly the opportunity to hold a small crocodile, and see a black jaguar and hear it give...More

Good place for a stroll, as you can walk in a tropical garden looking at relics. In the park you will encounter little mammals like racoons walking freely. They are lovely to watch. For the same reason food and bags are not allowed inside.

Spent the day walking around it was very interesting. Would love to go back again sometime. I think the cats could do with better living conditions

This outdoor museum park has very easy trails leading to sculptures that each has interpretive signage. The zoo portion is also well-kept, and has a very nice walk-in large aviary.

We’d had an extremely long drive having had to take a detour from San Cristobal to Palenque as local protesters, allied to the Zapatista movement, had blocked the main access road. This meant we missed seeing the Agua Azul waterfalls but actually our revised trip...More

The park's display of the giant Olmec heads was my whole reason for coming to Villahermosa, and it didn't disappoint me. The heads and other Olmec monuments here were really amazing. The tomb constructed out of hexagonal basalt columns is one of the amazing things...More

A somewhat weird mixture of a zoo with archeological finds. I recommend to go on a guided tour. I didn’t but I followed a group that was already in a middle of the tour, which made me appreciate how much I missed going by myself.

I don't think so, most of the tourists were guided, although you can go on your own. There are wild monkeys, jaguars, and other jungle animals in the park and it is a conservation area.
