Full description
Enjoy an official guided tour to the world-famous Vallarta Botanical Gardens destination and the pristine nature reserve! This exclusive experience immerses guests in both the natural beauty of Mexican plants and the richness of authentic Mexican cuisine. Your experience begins upon meeting up with your official Vallarta Botanical Garden guide who will serve as your companion and ambassador of Mexico’s tremendous native flora and fauna. Together you will wind your way along Vallarta’s stunning south shore and up the Horcones Canyon to the world-famous Vallarta Botanical Garden. From there the adventure begins in earnest as you venture through garden trails, conservatories, and exhibits to explore and learn together. You’ll then dine in the magnificent Hacienda del Oro Restaurant with generous portions of authentic Mexican cuisine spotlighting some of the plants you just experienced in cultivation. Afterwards, you’ll also have some free time to wander the garden at your leisure, swim in the crystalline waters of the mountain river flowing through the forest preserve, capture some photographs, or relax with a drink in hand at the observation deck of the Garden’s Visitor Center. There’s nothing quite like the Vallarta Botanical Garden, and the Botanical Delights Tour and Culinary Adventure is the best way to enjoy the most from your experience there. A day of delights will provide memories for a lifetime.
