Since opening the Garden’s gates in 2005, Vallarta Botanical Garden 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 Garden is 74 acres of highland mountain splendor, just 30 minutes south of Old Town Puerto Vallarta.

At Vallarta Botanical Garden, 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 Garden’s famous Hacienda de Oro Restaurant. A day’s worth of activities for just $300 pesos entrance fee, your best vacation value.

Open daily from 9 am to 6:00 pm (closed Mondays from April through November), Vallarta Botanical Garden is located 30 minutes south of Old Town at Km. 24 on Highway 200. For more information, call (322) 223-6182 or visit vbgardens.org.
