Where to Go / What to Do in Villahermosa

In addition to the convergence of colonial architecture represented by ancient buildings like the Cathedral, Templo de la Concepción and Palacio de Gobierno; you will find a new architectural trend of modernist style that is well worth seeing. An example of these new buildings are those hosting Palacio Municipal, Centro Administrativo de Gobierno and the beautiful Casa de los Azulejos, currently the home of Museo de Historia de Tabasco. If you want a complete tour of the city, then jump on the Olmeca Express, a boat ride on Grijalva River.

The colossal Olmeca heads, so famous around the world, are the work of the culture mother of all Mesoamerican cultures in Mexico. Found in the archeological site of La Venta, on Tabasco territory, these heads are part of the exhibit at Parque Museo La Venta. Additionally, a second area exhibits hundreds of animal and vegetable species of the region.

Alongside the Laguna de Ilusiones, this beautiful recreational park is one of the places preferred by the families of Villahermosa for enjoying a beautiful sunset while walking through the green gardens that decorate the leisure areas or admiring the Tabasco jungle from 50 meters high at Mirador de las Aguilas.

Among the complexes forming this park are Museo de Historia Natural, areas for concerts and cultural shows, convention halls and a zoo, among others.

Inaugurated in 1980, this modern museum was hosted by Southern poet Carlos Pellicer. Inside you will find numerous archeological objects discovered in the surrounding areas of Tabasco belonging to the ancient pre-Columbian tribes that inhabited Tabasco.
