December 8, 2018.
In our last post we were tooling down the Mexican mainland coast of the Sea of Cortez. We took a break from the beaches to head inland from Topolobampo to Culiacán, where we wanted to see the Botanical Gardens. After spending a night in the Tres Rios hotel parking lot, we visited the gardens.
In 1986 the city dedicated this prime real estate to a place its residents could enjoy. Since then they have done their best to make this a world class botanical and sculpture garden. The climate here allows plants from rain forests to live beside desert plants. Many species have been imported from around the world.
Admission was cheap, so we decided to splurge and get the English audio tour as well. Total cost for both of us was $5.50 US. Hope you enjoy your virtual visit.
