Loved the day spent here! Took an Uber there and took the bus back. Easy! Ate an amazing lunch and went for a hike and swim.

We love spending a day at the Botanical Gardens. Swimming in the river, dining in the open air restaurant that has a great breeze and walking through the gorgeous tropical gardens. Everyone should visit when in Vallarta.

Flowers and greenery are exquisite, and fine dining is excellent. The gardens are a relatively short drive from Puerto Vallarta.
