Puerto Vallarta’s Botanical Garden Places 5th In USA Today’s Best Gardens

The Vallarta Botanical Garden (www.vbgardens.org) in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, has been voted into the fifth-place spot among all botanical gardens in North America in USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice 2019.

Although the list has been dominated by gardens in the U.S., the Vallarta Botanical Garden has placed twice, first in 2018 when it became the third international botanical garden to place on the list, ranking in at number 4 and this year when it placed at number 5. Montreal’s Botanical Garden also placed in this year’s list coming in at number 10.

“We congratulate the Vallarta Botanical Garden on this honor as it represents part of the grand flora and fauna found in Puerto Vallarta,” said Javier Aranda Pedrero, Director of the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board. “Puerto Vallarta is a lush destination, green, where we respect the Sierra Madre Mountains and the Bay of Banderas. We invite our visitors to experience the many ecological adventures offered in Puerto Vallarta, including the Estero el Salado and Los Arcos National Park.”

USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice 2019 Best Botanical Gardens in North America are initially selected by a panel of experts who voted on the top 20 botanical gardens, and then the final top 10 were determined by popular vote at the 10Best website — including Sherry Boswell (Travel Plans in Mom Hands), Cindy Brockway (The Trustees), Abby Meyer (Botanic Gardens Conservation International-U.S.), Nicky Omohundro (Little Family Adventure) and Katy Moss Warner (American Horticultural Society) Eileen Ogintz (Taking the Kids) who has worked with the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board to promote the destination’s offering previously.
