Tabasco is a state in northern Mexico, along the Gulf of Mexico's shoreline. The capital city of Villahermosa is home to the zoo and Olmec-era stone sculptures at Parque Museo la Venta. Both the Mayan and Olmec cultures of the area's natives are on display at the Museo Regional de Antropologia, while the enormous Museo de Historia de Tabasco traces the region's history back to prehistoric times.
