Paraíso sits along the Gulf Coast shoreline in Tabasco. It offers excellent dining opportunities right on the shore as well as beaches with views of nearby oil platforms ("rigs"), as well as a central plaza fronted by a picturesque church.
Paraíso is readily accessible by local and long-distance buses. In fact, the overnight bus from Merida to some cities in Tabasco makes a stop in Paraíso at approximately 06:00.
Lots of colectivos ply the route from Comalcalco (home to the largest archaeological site in Tabasco) to Paraíso. One spot they gather is on the road in front of the Chedraui/Cinepolis Plaza parking lot.
A taxi ride from there is also cheap.
- The picturesque (although some would say tacky) Templo de San Marcos overlooking Parque Venustiano Carranza.
- Restaurant La Posta, ☏ . M$75-90. This seaside restaurant, built on a deck over Laguna Mecoacán, specializes in seafood and serves up big portions and ambience. Try the camarones empanizados (breaded shrimp) or the pescado a la diabla (spicy fish).
