Since opening the Gardens gates in 2005, Vallarta Botanical Gardens has won international accolades as a not-to-be missed highlight of any trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Recommended by Lonely Planet, National Geographic and Fodor’s Travel Guides, Vallarta Botanical Gardens is 20 acres of highland mountain splendor, just 30 minutes south of Old Town Puerto Vallarta.
At Vallarta Botanical Gardens, hundreds of collections of native tropical plants such as orchids, anthuriums, agaves as well as colorful flowering trees are to be found on meandering jungle pathways. Explore the Orchid Conservatory to learn the story about the native vanilla orchid, cacao (the chocolate plant), and coffee.
Swimming amongst the giant boulders in the crystalline spring-fed river within the garden ground is an unforgettable experience. See a real Mexican country kitchen where handmade tortillas are prepared in the traditional way to be served to you in the Gardens’ famous Hacienda de Oro Restaurant. A day’s worth of activities for just $80 pesos entrance fee, your best vacation value.
