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 - Write a Review
July 2017, low season for tourists, high season for hummingbirds. The bus ride is cheap and scenic, we were the only people going to the Vallarta Botanical Gardens. Lunch was delicious. I travel on my stomach. Drinks were good. The hummingbirds are amazing. So many varieties and so used to humans. You get a small container of nectar, the birds will feed while you hold it or if it is on your table or railing. The gardens are gorgeous. We got a late start, partly thanks to the hummingbirds and interesting gift shop. Orchids, flowers, truly a tropical paradise. It involves walking, although I have limitations and didn't see nearly enough, but I doubt it is possible. I plan to visit different times of the year. It was breathtaking. In case you can't tell, I have a special fondness for air plants.
This is a must if you visit PV! All staff is very courteous, and they arrange free tours of the place where they tell you information about different species they have, and also let you ask questions about everything you pass along the tour. The restaurant's food is actually good, something I didn't expect at all, and the service was some of the best we've received in the area. There's a couple of different hike trails you can walk if you want as well, we just did two of the five we found. One went down to a river, and it's gorgeous. You can take a swim to cool down here if you want. The other went down into a creek where you could see a huge strangler fig tree, from bottom to top, which was just amazing. We initially thought this would be a 30 minute to 1h thing, but ended up spending well over two hours here. Oh and personally I have zero interest in plants, but I still found it fascinating, especially after taking the tour.
Interesting native plant species. Orchids and flowers galore. The restaurant (La Hacienda de Oro) is exceptional The menu is extensive and has a great variety. Very fair prices and the service is fine. Beautiful vast view from the outside patio deck. There's a large gift shop on the bottom floor with interesting and unique items. I have visited the Gardens 4 times in the last 5 years. Every January. It keeps improving as plants mature and the gardens expand.
LOVE this place! This is easily my favorite spot in all of Puerto Vallarta. The views are amazing. It is hummingbird season and they give you feeders so that you can see them up close while you order food. The food here is also very good with friendly wait staff. The river is just a short hike away and there are padded seats here to lounge on for extended periods of relaxing with nature in relative peace and privacy. I highly recommend this place. It would be a shame to visit Puerto Vallarta and miss this gem.
Beautiful and extensive grounds. Restaurant hacienda has a wonderful view and is a great break from the heat. Don't miss swimming in the river nearby.
