Editor’s Note

Congratulations to the Vallarta Botanical Garden for its inclusion in the 2019 List of the “TOP 10 NORTH AMERICAN GARDENS WORTH TRAVELLING FOR” as announced on Tuesday, November 5th, 2019 at the North American Garden Tourism Conference in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada!

This biennial list is determined by a committee including representation from the Canadian Garden Council, American Public Gardens Association, and the Mexican Association of Botanical Gardens.

The gardens named on this distinguished list retain this status until 2021 when the next set of recipients will be declared.

Awards and recognitions of this stature are important for the entire region of Puerto Vallarta as a destination and help keep visitors coming back to explore all of the incredible experiences and activities that our region has to offer.

We at the Vallarta Tribune are always happy to share with the world what makes our destination unique and exceptional. If you have awards, recognitions, or news to share about a Puerto Vallarta destination, business, or non-profit, please don’t hesitate to send those our way.

Saludos tropicales,
