Well worth the 200peso admission for beautiful flowers, birds, butterflies, and food at Hacienda de Oro. Wonderful shrimp tacos & shrimp stuffed avocado, excellent service, in a pleasant open-air setting while watching the birds. See photo. Interesting combination & variety of orchids (including vanilla plantation),...More

It is well worth taking a cab out to Vallarta Botanical Gardens. The gardens are wonderful and I especially enjoyed the orchid house that even a person who is limping can get to and see. The restaurant is excellent, service superb and views very pretty....More

Hi, You can buy the general ticket entrance at the gates of the Botanical Garden. If you want to book a tour, you have to do it in avance. Cheers
