Olmec is the main boss of Spelunky.
It is located in Olmec's Chamber, on the fourth stage of the Temple.

Defeating Olmec rewards you with the Giant Idol and wins the game.
You also receive the Achievement 'Made it', and unlock the Jungle Warrior character.

Olmec spawns lesser enemies such as Hawkmen and Frogs while pounding on the ground.

It is possible to 'ride' Olmec by climbing on top of the head while it is on the ground. Doing this allows you to reach the upper platforms of the level, filled with treasure and crates.
