Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - In addition to exploring the 60 acres of native tropical plants and flowering trees, there's always something new to discover at Vallarta Botanical Garden! Founder Robert Price brings us up to date on some of the Garden's ongoing, new, and soon-to-be-completed projects.
The Bridge of Dreams Project Completed
The Garden thanks Guardian Members Ken Shanoff and Steve Young for their generosity in funding the construction of El Puente de Los Sueños (The Bridge of Dreams) which has just been completed, and is open to the public for your enjoyment upon your next visit to the Garden. We thank all of those who dream with us and create bridges - both literal and figurative - to the bright future we envision.
Construction Continues on the Cactus and Succulent Plant Project
