Horcones River at Vallarta Botanical Gardens

Meet in the Romantic Zone of Puerto Vallarta and bus to the Botanical Gardens approximately an hour away.


At the Vallarta Botanical Gardens, we will hike through the gardens for up to 2 hours exploring.  The first hour will be of the major plantings and different plant houses.   Then we will hike through some of the more remote jungle trails of the Garden property for up to an hour. 


At about 1 pm we will take a break at the main center of the Botanical Gardens so that one may explore the gift shops and have lunch in their award winning restaurant (Hacienda de Oro) with fabulous views over the Gardens and canyon. 


After lunch we will hike to the river and explore some of the river and spend up to 2 hours swimming, resting, and frolicking in the river.   At about 4 pm we will hike back to the Botanical Gardens center for more shopping, restaurant, restrooms, and last stroll through some planting beds before we catch the bus to return to Puerto Vallarta.
