The Vallarta Botanical Gardens has provided an opportunity for our community to share the wonder and the diversity of Mexico’s plant species with the world.
They have botanical collections in a environment of viewing trails and have the most-visited public collection of orchids in the whole of Mexico.
The trails lead down to the small river and if you want to cool off, suggest you bring a towel.
The location is surrounded by jungle and so you may find some bitting bugs, so a repellent is advisable, the Gardens have some for sale there.
