See Nature in a New Way

People travel long distances to get to know the famous Botanical Gardens around the world, but the importance of each of the different species that adorn these scenarios often goes unnoticed or does not capture our attention because of the amount of species that overwhelm our senses. However, for the true lover of nature, flowers, trees and plants have their own history in terms of their cultural wealth in the region, their importance in the traditions of their people and the medicinal properties they offer. As for the richness of colors, birds and animals that complement the attractions of the area, you can experience this tuning which will allow you to admire the beauty of the place and understand the importance of preserving these sanctuaries called Gardens.

Activity Details

Your experience begins upon meeting up with your official Vallarta Botanical Garden guide who will serve as your companion and ambassador of Mexico’s tremendous native flora and fauna. Together you will wind your way along Vallarta’s stunning south shore and up the Horcones Canyon to the world-famous Vallarta Botanical Garden. From there the adventure begins in earnest as you venture through garden trails, conservatories, and exhibits to explore and learn together.

You’ll then dine in the magnificent Hacienda del Oro Restaurant with generous portions of authentic Mexican cuisine spotlighting some of the plants you just experienced in cultivation. Afterwards, you’ll also have some free time to wander the garden at your leisure, swim in the crystalline waters of the mountain river flowing through the forest preserve, capture some photographs, or relax with a drink in hand at the observation deck of the Garden’s Visitor Center.
