One of the attractions of Villahermosa, Tabasco, is undoubtedly the Museum Park "La Venta". This museum was opened to the public on March 4, 1958. The park is divided into two main parts, namely a zoological and an archaeological area. In the first part one can appreciate 518 specimens of 62 species, including jaguars, crocodiles, pumas, spiders, howler monkeys, snakes and lots more. In the second part monumental pieces of the Olmec culture can be found. In Mexiko this museum is unique with its recreation of a rainforest in the center of the capital city. A tour of the park is very interesting as one very closely experience endemic species of the region. The zoo also has a large aviary containing birds of the area. Seeing them up close is a very special experience. As one walks through the archaeological area, one discovers ancient remains of the Olmec: colossal heads, stelae and different altars. Halfway through, one comes across a crocodile shelter and further there is a cage with jaguars, the emblematic animal of the state. This beautiful animal is unfortunately threatened with extinction. It is advisable to wear comfortable shoes and light clothing. The weather is hot and in the jungle it is even more so. It is also advisable to bring along some insect repellent and sunscreen. Enjoy it!
