Three Nature Adventures we Love in Puerto Vallarta

Two bright green parrots in Puerto Vallarta's lush jungle.

Puerto Vallarta is blessed with some of the most breathtaking nature, and memorable day excursions. Here are three of our favorites.

As always, our concierge service is able to assist in booking tours, and recommending additional activities to enjoy during your stay at Hacienda San Angel. 

Botanical Gardens (Jardin Botanico)

This is an all day (5-7) hour excursion during which you will be led by an expert in local flora and fauna. You will hike along Vallarta’s south shore, and up the Horcones Canyon to the world famous gardens. After the hike you will dine at the award winning Hacienda del Oro restaurant. Air conditioned transportation is available from several locations in Puerto Vallarta. Learn more.
