2022 Garden of Excellence Award Winner!




The Vallarta Botanical Garden (VBG) was awarded the prestigious “Garden Excellence Award for 2022” presented by the American Public Gardens Association (APGA), North America’s most important public garden organization. This marks the first time that any garden outside the U.S. has received this coveted honor, and we beat over 600 other public garden institutions in North America to win. (No small feat!) If you believe the Vallarta Botanical Garden is a force for good in Mexico, now is your chance to engage with us as we take the Garden to even higher levels of excellence!

Friends, we ask your help to prepare and improve our facilities and staff for the additional visitors we’re already receiving due to this international honor. To maintain this level of excellence at the Garden and remain a top tourism generator and cultural icon for Puerto Vallarta and Mexico, significant and ongoing work must be done! We depend on our membership and donations to sustain the Garden, and we strive to deliver excellence and unforgettable experiences while fostering a love of nature and Mexico.
