Santa Barbara Botanical Gardens

Santa Barbara became Puerto Vallarta's first sister city back in 1972. Since then it has helped spread international peace and understanding by fostering that cross-border alliance. Many Santa Barbara residents will travel to Puerto Vallarta this November as members of the Sister Cities Program.

We're happy to announce that the Vallarta Botanical Gardens and the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden have set up a reciprocal visitation program as the first step in what we hope will blossom into a long friendship. VBG members visiting Santa Barbara need only show their membership cards for complimentary entry to the SBBG, and vice versa.

The SBBG has provided the following description to share with our members:

"Experience the beauty of California Native Plants at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden. The Garden boasts 78 acres of lush landscape and features one of the largest collections of California native plants in the state. Our vibrant displays are spread across 5 ½ miles of trails that include towering redwoods, lush meadows, and a desert section, along with the historic Mission Dam. Stroll along the Garden's serene paths and be instantly transported to the four corners of California. Pack a lunch and relax in a picnic area while enjoying the Garden's stunning vistas."

Santa Barbara Botanical Gardens can be contacted at (805) 682-4726 or visit

Please join us in welcoming guests from Santa Barbara here at the Vallarta Botanical Gardens this November.
