La Venta Museum (Parque Museo La Venta) Tours

La Venta Museum (Parque Museo La Venta)
Located on the site of an Olmec ceremonial center, along the bank of the beautiful Lagoon of Illusions, the Ventana Museum was created to preserve artifacts from the surrounding areas, including massive carved stone structures found when oil companies drained local marshes. Among a maze of walking paths through the jungle sit around 30 sculptures, including stone altars and rare Olmec heads, only 18 are known to exist, that weight about 20 tons. The park also has a botanical garden and a zoo with animals like howler monkeys, peccaries and jaguars.

Practical Info

Plan to spend at least a couple hours exploring the incredible artifacts and unique creatures in the zoo. And bring bug spray, as the park is set among the jungle alongside wetlands where mosquitos are abundant.
Address: Adolfo Ruiz Cortines Boulevard, Villahermosa 86040, Mexico
Hours: Daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Admission: Not free. Admission for non-Mexicans is 40 pesos (just over $2) per person.
