Vallarta Botanical Gardens will host their 2nd annual Flower and Garden Show on February 23 - 28. This week-long event, running Tuesday through Sunday, will feature local products, floral designs from top florists, and takes place at the peak of the Gardens’ floral displays. Local florists will compete for prizes in the Hall of Flowers inside the Hacienda.   

Educational demonstrations will take place each afternoon at 2pm. The Gardens' Vivero will be packed with plants for sale, such as coffee, chocolate and vanilla orchid plants, plus blooming orchids, rare plants, handmade baskets, and local pottery. Everyone is invited to discover why the Gardens has quickly become one of Puerto Vallarta’s “must visit” attractions. There is a $50 pesos charge for the general public to enter the Gardens. Entry is free for members. There is no additional charge to view the Flower & Garden Show.  

A special brunch menu is available from 10am to 2m on Sundays for only $170 pesos and includes one cocktail, cinnamon bun, fresh fruit, local organic coffee and an entrée of your choice from the Brunch Menu.
