The Vallarta Botanical Gardens has been unanimously elected as a "Top 10 North American Gardens Worth Travelling For In 2013" by an international jury made up of garden tourism leaders from Canada, the United States and Europe.
The destinations will be officially announced March 19 at the Garden Tourism Conference in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
We are the first Mexican garden to receive this recognition.
This award will be presented to the VBGs’ Executive Staff and Officers on Tuesday, March 26.
Please show a warm Vallarta welcome to our distinguished Canadian guests by visiting us on this important day.
Garden visits are a rapidly expanding sector of the tourism market, so the award is sure to bring secondary benefits to the community as a whole.
Given the approach of the first-ever Vallarta Bugambilias Festival, mounted by the Vallarta Garden Club, this recognition could not have come at a better time for our region to attract an important sector of the travel market.
Additionally, a delegation of the Board of Directors of the National Museum of Mexican Art, the only accredited museum of Mexican art in the United States, recently visited the Gardens and signed a Memorandum of Understanding with us.
We have begun to brainstorm collaborative projects that would benefit our organizations and promote tourism to our respective cities — Puerto Vallarta and Chicago, Illinois.
We invite you to add your charity or supporting organizations' news stories and coming events to PVAngels so we can share them with the world. Do it now!
If you would like to donate directly to the non-profits in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit, here are some suggestions you may want to consider to help our local communities in this time of greatest need.
