Ángel R. Cabada is a town (villa) in the Mexican state of Veracruz. Located in the state's Papaloapan River region, it serves as the municipal seat for the surrounding municipality of the same name.[2]

In the 2005 INEGI Census, Ángel R. Cabada (the town) reported a total population of 11,689.[1]

The town is named after Ángel Rosario Cabada (1872-1921), an agrarian leader. Previously, the town was named El Mesón.[1] El Mesón had been a small regional center of the Olmec or Epi-Olmec culture during a period between 400 BCE and 100 CE. Local farmers found the El Mesón Stela in the 1950s. [3] (Tres Zapotes, about 15 km south of El Mesón, was part of the Olmec heartland.)
