Even though it's hotter than heck in Villahermosa this time of year, the park is shady and so it's tolerable. Adorable coatis wandering around sent my daughter into hysterics of joy, and the Olmec artifacts are fascinating. You follow paths in the jungle between them,...More

Perfect combination between culture and fauna. Everything was made as in the wild nature. Easy round walk.

Very enjoyable walk around a beautiful park, lots of fauna and flora, exceptionally evocative Olmec and Mayan sculptures, a really good preparation for our trip into the southern classic Mayan sites. Mayan culture came from somewhere!

I stopped in Villahermosa on my way to Palenque and was eager to revisit the park after 10 years. It has a zoo, aviary and ancient Olmec artifacts, all in a jungle-like setting. The Olmec civilization is the oldest in Mesoamerica and this collection is...More
