Villahermosa City (Lodging)
The city spreads along the western shore of the Grijalva River, with an irregular road network that skirts past lagoons, marshes and wetlands. In addition to the city’s modern amenities (shopping malls, hotels, quality restaurants etc.) and oil-funded prosperity, two features distinguish Villahermosa from other southern Mexican towns: its beautiful parks, and the native Tabasqueño people who relish getting together in large social gatherings. The west side of Villahermosa has lovely landscaped lakes rimmed by parks (Tomas Garrido Canabal, Laguna de Las Ilusiones, for example) featuring stone paths, royal palms, well-tended gardens, and conference centers.
