Lois and I took a short drive down the coast and visited the beautiful Vallarta Botanical Gardens last week.  Once again, we were amazed by the beauty of this fabulous local attraction and astounded by the amount of work and dedication that has gone into this extraordinary project over the last nine years.  Bob Price and his staff continue to develop and improve The Gardens and each time we visit we find new and expanded offerings.  The new Vallarta Conservatory of Orchids and Native Plants is now complete and they will be celebrating the grand opening next month.  This is an attraction for all seasons and I urge you to visit often and support them.  This is truly one of the finest attractions in our area and we are fortunate to have it so close by.  You can find further information at: https://www.vbgardens.org/.

I have included a few photos from our visit last week to give you a small sample of the stunning discoveries that await you at the Vallarta Botanical Gardens.  CLICK ON ANY PHOTO TO SEE A LARGER VERSION.
