What a beautiful place to visit when in Puerto Vallarta! We did our own walking tour on two different days, there is so much to see, we had to come back. The staff has done a wonderful job sculpting these beautiful gardens. The map was easy to follow, with beautiful trails that provided good exercise (but very doable for a couple of young seniors). Don't make the visit without visiting the restaurant. Great drinks, views, fantastic service and delicious food!

There is Old Town Puerto Vallarta, there is the Bay, and there are the beautiful people and the genuine hospitality in the city of Puerto Vallarta and the valley, but the very essence of what Mexico is and what the Puerto Vallarta region has to offer can all be found at the Vallarta Botanical Gardens. We were so fortunate to have Eduardo as our driver on the bus ride to the gardens and as a personal guide through the winding paths of absolute beauty. A very knowledgeable, polite, articulate young man who took the time to understand us and what we wanted to experience from this beautiful country. It was truly almost emotional the moment of just stepping off the ride and experiencing the vision and vibes of the place; one of our parties even teared up. Eduardo's explanation of the plants local to this region, their scientific names when asked, and the native medicinal uses of the plant among the local people was astounding. With care he discussed the plants, the balance of nature, the wildlife in that region and the life of Vanilla and Chocolate. The lunch was outstanding, personal, and presented with a hibiscus tea and a wonderful vanilla mojito. The fajita that I had was better than any fajita I’ve experienced. After lunch we were allowed to walk alone through the garden, down to the River where we saw huge colorful birds. Trust. Ask for Eduardo, book your very inexpensive tour, leave your Wi-Fi needs behind and allow yourself to become one with the universe in these gardens.

This was the highlight of our 6 days in Puerta Vallarta. I was looking for something to do that might be cooler than super hot and super humid and this area is high in the mountain and was simply amazing. Its about a $20 cab ride from the Sheraton hotel for reference. We hired a cab at the hotel for the day for $75.00 and he stayed with us and took as all over until we got back to town about 3:30. (we left at 9:00am) there are usually cabs there if you want to just take one up and back. I think it is $10.50 US each to enter. we were there with our two adult children (25,28). This place is simply beautiful and we all sounded like kids yelling "hey, look at this"! nearly all at the same time looking at different things. That's how fun it was. Trails are a bit sketchy in places, but safe. Just don't wear flip flops. You will NOT be disappointed in the place. No tour needed. Just walk around and look for hours. It goes really fast. We also ate at their restaurant and it was super good. We had great appetizers and a couple of shared meals and it was all extremely good. Service A+ without questions and beautiful humming birds everywhere. Eat there and spend some money. Food is extremely good, but not cheap, but they need to make money to support the place so make the effort. It is great food and a good way to cool off. Don't miss this place if you to Vallarta. It is well worth the time!!!
