Transcript of Tabasco, Mexico

A State in Mexico Tabasco,Mexico For tourism, Tabasco provides views of Mayan pyramids. Despite its accommodating services, few foreign tourists come to this place. Even so, its capital, Villahermosa, offers all the amenities for tourism. It has set up a number of programs and facilities to host tourists. It is known for its intense tropical greenery because of the humidity, the large rivers Usumacinta and Grijalva, and the changing landscape that eventually becomes the Sierra Marde de Chiapas. Lagoons, estuaries, and marshes are abundant. This place does not have sprawling resorts, but rather it has rustic seaside villages. Some things to do in this place are Tenosique, Playa Parasio, Tapijulapa, and Mayan culinary food. Tourism An important part of the tourism of Tabasco stems from the Mayan pyramid. The famous site in the state is the Comalcalco, which means “in the house of the comals”. This is a unique site; rather than its sites built with limestone, the buildings are composed of bricks. Even more fascinating is the study of the mason’s marks on the stones; they are identical to Roman marks! Could it be possible that ancient Romans had contact with the Americas even before Columbus? Evidence from the bricks further showed that the area was bilingual, with one brick having the same text in two different languages. Following further study, archaeologists have come to believe that the site could have contained an ancient trade school, where Mayans came to study writing. Mayan Pyramid Tourism is only one part of the economy of Tabasco; the main provider of the state’s GDP is the mining of petroleum and natural gas. The most important complex of petroleum mining is done in the Macuspana municipality by PEMEX. In the country as a whole, there are 860 wells producing 556,371 barrels of oil a day and 1,363 million cubic feet of natural gas a day. Even with the recent oil boom, the country is still in a state of poverty. 150,000 families live in poverty, especially in the Jonuta, Tacotalpa, Centla, and Humanguillo municipalities. Besides mining of oil and gas, there is commercial farming in corn, sorghum, beans, perennials, pasture, and livestock. Despite salt water and fresh water fishing, the commercial fishing industry is underdeveloped. Economy and Oil For tourism, Tabasco provides views of Mayan pyramids.
