Along the palms to pines highway sits los jardines botanicos - the botanical gardens of Puerto Vallarta - a nature lovers paradise, that makes a delightful outing for an afternoon. Just 30 minutes from Puerto Vallarta - amidst enchanting mountain scenery. The gardens 20 acres are filled with trails and flowering plants as well as one of the most visited collections of orchids in the country of Mexico.
Part of our entry fee included a complimentary beverage - a lovely and refreshing hibiscus cooler..... much appreciated after wandering through the grounds. Hacienda De Oro - the on site restaurant which is engulfed in cascades of bougainvillea, is a pleasant place to enjoy some good food and views of the grounds and surrounding hillside. You can shop for plants at the nursery and the gift shop is filled with some unique botanical related items. At the time of our visit the gardens were hosting a bird watching event - so thrilling to spot birds in every color of the rainbow. A very unique environment and a wonderful place to enjoy an afternoon.
