Vallarta Garden Club’s hard work is paid off in an impressive show of trees, plants and flowers, which attract a variety of native birds, iguanas and other animals. People naturally want to stop a while to take in the wonder of nature. What better way than a bench to allow people to commune in these beautiful spaces?
You can help provide a place for visitors to sit and soak it all in when you sponsor one of our three types of benches, located throughout the east end of the Isla Cuale. Each bench features provides the sponsor an opportunity to receive recognition and/or honor a loved one.
