The Garden of Memories
Services & Ceremonies:
We offer spiritual or interfaith religious services that meet the needs of a variety of beliefs and traditions.
Our memorial ceremonies may be held in any of the following areas: the Hall of Flowers in the Hacienda de Oro Visitor Center, the banks of the Rio Horcones, or the shade of the Giant Ficus Tree.
Ashes are traditionally scattered from any of the following inspirational settings: the Shade of the Giant Ficus, the banks of the Rio Horcones, the Cerro de Águila (Eagle Hill), or the Tree Fern Grotto. Family and friends usually reserve some ashes for a memorial in the garden which can range from a single hand painted tile to a cantera bench or memorial stone with a cross or statue.
Celebration of Life
Puerto Vallarta has earned its place in the hearts of a variety of extraordinary people from around the world. When we lose someone who has a connection to this special community, we look for a peaceful setting where we can honor their life and memory. The serenity and beauty of our natural sanctuary is a perfect place to remember the special people of our lives. Many of Vallarta’s distinguished luminaries have already been memorialized at the Vallarta Botanical Gardens. Their friends and family find a trip to the Garden provides a setting for reflection and celebration of the cycles of life.
Our Hacienda de Oro Restaurant in our Visitor Center is the ideal setting for a reception following your ceremony. For privacy, larger groups may reserve exclusive use of either the upstairs or downstairs areas. Each of our memorial packages includes garden entry and complimentary coffee and cookies for 20 guests. Additional guests may be accommodated and other reception packages with appetizers or meals can be offered. We can arrange transportation for groups.
