Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - A vision of the Vallarta Botanical Gardens that has simmered on the back burner for the past few years - the Vallarta Conservatory of Mexican Orchids - is scheduled for completion this month!
The conservatory's roof is now ready for the polycarbonate panels due to arrive here any day now. After the installation of these panels, there's only a few finishing details before this building is complete. By June 16th, Garden staff will begin work on design and installation for the conservatory displays.
