El Azazul, is near San Lorenzo Tenochtitlán, Veracruz, Mexico:

San Lorenzo Tenochtitlan (Tenochtitlán) is located about 35 km SE of Acayucan in the hot, swampy lowlands along the Gulf of Mexico, just south of Veracruz, near the small town of Tenochtitlán.

Tenochtitlán is a municipality (municipio) in in the Mexican State of Veracruz, southeastern Mexico, and the name of the main township which serves as the seat of the municipal government. It is located in the foothills of the Sierra Madre, with the township lying at an altitude of approximately 2,953 feet.

In the year 2000 census, the municipality of Tenochtitlán reported a total population of slightly over 5,600 people. The same census also revealed that Tenochtitlán had no hotels, no restaurants,

Getting To El Azazul, near San Lorenzo Tenochititlan:

If you visit San Lorenzo Tenochititlan and if you have about an hour of extra time to make the round trip, it is worth the drive to the site of El Azazul. If you are pressed for time, then we do not think it is worth the drive over a rather rough road to El Azazul.

The drive on a rather rough, but OK road will take you through an area that is covered with flora with river systems, swamps and marshes clearly in view. It can give you a slight impression as to what the area was like when the Olmec's lived there. Remember it was much wetter and the river were larger in those times.

If you drive about 6 1/2 km South of San Lorenzo Tenochititlan you will see in front of you a large "hill" that seems covered with trees. This appears to have been a large pyramid of the Olmec people. About 1/2 up the pyramid under a shelter are some carvings located under a shelter. They are in very nice condition so they are thought to be modern instead of Olmec.

At about 7 km from San Lorenzo Tenochititlan there is a forked road next to the pyramid. One road goes left, take that road for a few feet. A small home is located next to the right side of the road and also on the left side of the pyramid. There is a sign on the side of the hill but it is unreadable.

The owner of the home located on the side of the hill (Pyramid) will give you a tour for a small fee. We did not take advantage of the tour so we can not comment on the tour.

Be sure to have a good deet mosqueto repellant on when there. We forgot to pack out deet repellant and had to buy the brands sold in Mexico, which are next to useless. We hurt for several days after the visit.

The Carlos Rovirosa Pérez International Airport or Villahermosa International Airport (IATA: VSA, ICAO: MMVA) is the international airport located at Villahermosa, Tabasco, Mexico. It handles the national and international air traffic for the city of Villahermosa.

To easily get to the El Azazul Olmec Archaeological Ruins, we suggest flying into Villahermosa, renting a hotel to stay in and a car to drive to the ruins. You could also rent a taxi through your hotels Concierge Services to drive you to and from El Azazul.

A great place to stay when visiting the San Lorenzo Ruins, located near El Azazul, in Veracruz, Mexico is the Crowne Plaza Hotel VILLAHERMOSA, TAB. PASEO USUMACINTA 1708 TABASCO; VILLAHERMOSA, 86035 MEXICO.

It may seem strange to stay in Villahermosa to visit El Azazul Ruins but it really is just about your only choice. You could perhaps stay at Lake Catemaco. We recommend Hotel La Finca there.

The Crowne Plaza Villahermosa Hotel is ideal for business and pleasure.

It also provides complete services at a great price.

We suggest getting a hotel in Villahermosa and then letting them arrange either a car or a tour of Villahermosa and/or the PARQUE LA VENTA. You also could arrange for a tour of the LaVenta Archaeological Site near Huimanguillo. You will need a full day for that tour. If you call the hotels Concierge Services ahead of your arrival, all of this can be pre-arranged for you.

We do this all the time, when traveling in Mexico. It is safe and it works!!! We have never experienced a problem doing it this way!

Priceline.com can also arrange that for you. In fact, we think they are the best way to do it!

We have personally, booked flights, hotels, and vacations, through Priceline.com and we can highly recommend them. Their website is very easy to use!

We have some links to Priceline.com on this page, since they can arrange all of your air flights, hotels and car.
