About Us

Our Mission

We are a company focused on providing the best experience and service to all our customers. Our mission is not only to offer unforgettable experiences, but we believe that tourism is a new way to raise awareness and protect the environment, enthusiastic and guided by a team that cares about the conservation and dissemination of natural, historical and cultural resources of our bay. We seek harmony between nature, tourism and our visitors in such a way that they can connect with the environment.

Our Vision

The creation of Vallarta Botanical Gardens has provided an unprecedented opportunity for our community to share the wonder of the vast diversity of Mexico’s plant species with the world. We have assembled botanical collections in a safe environment with viewing trails and have already built the most-visited public collection of orchids in the country of Mexico.

Our Team

As a nonprofit charitable organization, the Vallarta Botanical Gardens relies on the contributions of our members and donors to sustain this natural sanctuary, continue much needed conservation projects, and further our outreach to the Puerto Vallarta region’s community. There are many ways to support the Garden, including donating funds, purchasing a membership or a tile, or joining the team as a volunteer. Donations help support our educational programs, environmental awareness in the community, and much more.
