⇒Puerto Vallarta Botanical Gardens
- Location: The Vallarta Botanical Gardens are located at the Km. 24 marker of Highway 200, Carretera Puerto Vallarta a Barra de Navidad (the only road that goes south from Puerto Vallarta)
- Cost: 150 pesos per person, children four and under are free
- Hours: 10:00am-6:00pm every day December-March, closed on Mondays from April-November
- How to get there: catch the bus to “El Tuito” at the corner of Carranza and Aguacate streets, in the Romantic Zone (directly outside of Kiosko). This bus leaves every half hour or so. This bus will also return you to PV. Bus fare is 20 pesos each way.
- Notes: Only cash is accepted at the entrance. The restaurant and gift shop accept credit and debit cards. Plan to spend about 2:30-3 hours at the gardens, if not longer. The bus took about 38 minutes from the Romantic Zone the gardens.
- What to bring: sunscreen, bug spray, water, swimsuit (there is a nice, cool river that runs through the gardens), and tennis shoes for walking/hiking.

Rant of the day:
Today we visited the Vallarta Botanical Gardens!
Thanks for coming along our daily adventure with us! Thankfully, we did not ever encounter any jaguars, even on “Jaguar Trail”. We had an awesome time exploring the gardens and would highly recommend this getaway for anyone-visitors and expats alike! The gardens are situated deep into the mountains and creates a calm, serene atmosphere to enjoy. Bonus: there are tons of hummingbirds (that will drink for your hand!), butterflies, and other cute garden creatures that we don’t typically see in the heart of PV. Have you visited the Botanical Gardens before? What was your favorite thing there?
Keep it Kinetic,
Greg and Hillary
