My son and I took the Ola Brisa Garden tour on December 28, 2018 during our vacation in Manzanillo. Tommy our guide and host has created an amazing multi terraced garden which includes a huge variety of palms and plants from around the world. During...More
Very nice reception, tour, and info about horticulture and local area. Be prepared to pay 400,000 pesos which helps cover water bill expenses. Maybe a pamphlet or snacks included would have been nice.
Our hosts toured us throughout the terraced gardens and explained the history of the gardens and future plans. They were gracious and answered every question our small group of 6 presented. Our friends were thrilled to be making a return visit as there is a...More

Ola Brisa Gardens is a wonderful and magnificent place to visit. This is an absolute "must see" stop if you visit Manzanillo or anywhere within 500 miles. Personally, I would drive a thousand miles to visit Ola Brisa Gardens again. The Gardens are literally a...More
