Vallarta Botanical Gardens - Review
This is an interesting attraction - it doesn't try to overplay its assets; rather it seeks to maximise the visitor's experience. Set over 20 acres of land, the garden demonstrates the Tropical Dry Forest Biome, cultivating trees such as oaks, bromeliads, agaves, cactus and wild palms. Winding hiking paths course through these plants, and on your walk, you ought to spot a great variety of orchids. Birdies may want to cast their gaze higher if they want to catch sight of the thriving avian population in the morning and evening. The Rio Horcones flows along the edges of the gardens and you are welcome to take a dip. After you've checked everything out, make sure to have a nibble and a sip at the on site restaurant, which has glowing reviews from everyone - it's a real Mexican country kitchen.

Vallarta Botanical Gardens, Puerto Vallarta Reviews
You best vacation value! You admission ticket(200 pesos or about 10 US) is good for two consecutive days which is good because the garden is about 65 areas with rivers for swimming and hiking trails through the woods, take lots of time to explore. Bar and Restaurant are first rate and authentic. Free guided tour with a biologist at 1 each day and a free non alcoholic drink is included with your ticket. The gardens is member supported but is open to the public. Take public transportation (Tuito Bus) for about 30 pesos each way. Highly recommended and beautiful.
Very interesting garden. Nice little trails to walk. Take however enough water with you. Some trails are steep, combined with the humid and warm weather dehydration is a reality. Meanwhile enjoy the trees, plants, stream, butterflies and hummingbirds. Oh, and don't forget to use a repellent. And after (or before) your hike do sit down in the restaurant with view on the valley /garden for a friendly welcome and refreshment. Ask for some hummingbird 'food' to enjoy the hummingbirds right before your table. The entry ticket is for two days so take your time!
Nice place full of a diversity of plants, but a bit expensive- especially for for what it is and prohibitive towards locals getting to explore their own botanical treasures. It was the most expensive ticket I purchased while in Mexico which included pyramids, zoos and all sorts of museums and sometimes included additional camera charges. Since it was so expensive I came back for a second day since the ticket was still good, and felt better after jumping in the river- for clean natural water is such a scarcity in Mexico. Though they recommended bug spray I didn't have a problem without, but during the rainy summer season expect storms in the late afternoon and explore early.
Amazing location! We took the bus to gardens and it was efficient and cheap. The gardens are beautiful. Wear hiking shoes if you want to explore. The service was beyond expectations at the restaurant. We highly recommend the Libertador drink. Bring bug spray and take your time to soak in the views.
Bring good shoes for hiking if you are up to it. We had a really great experience hiking through the jungle to the river, the trails are rough so be prepared. If hiking isn’t you thing, there’s lots of accessible garden areas. The gardens and restaurant were wonderful. Very friendly service. Also a very easy bus ride to navigate from PV.
