Vallarta Botanical Gardens Celebrates World Environment Day with a Sneak Peek

Vallarta Botanical Gardens
May 24, 2015

Virtual Vallarta took a quick detour to the Vallarta Botanical Gardens where Founder/Curator Bob Price shares how he started this important Puerto Vallarta landmark, along with some of the many activities that visitors can enjoy there, and how it has become one of our city's most popular attractions.

The Vallarta Botanical Gardens will celebrate World Environment Day with the soft opening of the new Dick and Dee Daneri Vireya Rhododendron House at 12:00 pm on Friday, June 5, 2015.

A grand opening of this structure when it is more fully stocked with plants will be scheduled for the winter.

The beautiful new Dick and Dee Daneri Vireya Rhododendron House has been completed and our gardeners are busy transplanting our stunning vireya collections there now.

More lovely vireyas are currently in cultivation and will be transferred to the Dick and Dee Daneri Vireya Rhododendron House in the winter when we will hold a grand opening event to celebrate the completion of this project in its full glory.

Vireyas, formerly referred to as Malesian Rhododendrons in respect to where they were first discovered, has a range extending as far north as Taiwan, south to northern Australia, and east to the Solomon Islands.

Vallarta Botanical Gardens is located 30 minutes south of Old Town, Puerto Vallarta, on Carretera a Barra Navidad at km 24, just past Las Juntas and Los Veranos. For more information, email or telephone (322) 223-6182.
