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!

The visit begins, reaching the city of Comalcalco, where one has to take a truck to the entrance of the estate, which is a cost of 10 pesos (if one goes by taxi s they charge 80 pesos). Once we arrived the ranch, we went to CACEP offices where our guide was waiting: First, growing cocoa. We were taken for a nursery where we were told how to do grafting criollo cacao plant, because this is the one that bears fruit and produces good quality throughout the year. After a tour of the plantation, we were told of the characteristics of cocoa: Its resistance to weather, the harvest and how to fight pests organically. They produce an "insecticide" that does not kill the dangerous bugs, only drives them away, as it is a mixture of alcohol with onions and peppers. Then a tour of what was the old properties of the 20th century. They showed us an example of how the machines were used to separate cocoa beans, kitchen items Chontal and their typical clothes. The tour concludes with the interior and lifestyle of the people that owned the ranch. Then the tour continues along the Chocolate Factory. We went and saw all the industrial machinery that are used for drying and grinding cacao beans, then, go through other machines and start removing the butter, which is used for cosmetics and food. At the end of the tour, we were greeted by a huge chocolate food of white, black, bitter, sweet, with hazelnut, milk, peanuts, etc.., Of which we had to eat TOO without leaving any rudeness on the tray.
