Discover the beauty of conservation!
The south of Puerto Vallarta hosts beautiful natural landscapes where the high deciduous forest is home to several species of flora and fauna, among which tropical birds, such as the ferruginous pigmy owl, trogons, some parakeets and woodpekers and even some chachalacas with its characteristic calls.
In this site we find, located between the tropical highlands of Jalisco, the Vallarta Botanical Garden. Maintained by donations from locals and foreigners, it’s located about 1300 feet above sea level, next to the Horcones River. The Garden was created with the vision of being a site for reforestation, conservation and study of native flora, such as agaves, cacti, magnolias and orchids, as well as other exotic species of visual appeal. Due to its location and the efforts of those who work there, some areas have become key places for the nesting of species with high ecological importance, such as the Mexican hermit. In addition, it provides shelter and food to yellow-winged caciques, San Blas jays, woodpeckers, various species of hummingbirds, orioles and many other species of tropical birds throughout the year.
