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.

Didn’t care that much for the zoo part of the open air museum, but the statues are fantastic, spread along a circular pathway. The 40 peso entrance fee is well worth the money and saves a trip to the archeological site, as the best pieces...More

A small zoo containing local animals combined with a number of large Olmec sculptures rescued from along the coast where the Olmecs used to live, all in a jungle setting. There is a winding path that takes you around the animals and covered bird aviary...More

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.
