Map To Our location

In Santiago, on the north side of Manzanillo, on the north side of the Kiosko located at the large PEMEX on Blvd. de la Miguel Madrid – turn on Loma Bonita – a (rather rough) road going up the hill.  Proceed straight up the hill.  At the Y intersection at the top.  Take the (very steep) road to the right – this is why your car should be in first gear!  Ola Brisa Gardens is #7 on the right.  You can identify it by the large wrought iron coconut palm on the side of our home and the Thai temple bell at the entrance.  Park on the left side of the street.

Garden etiquette

Unless encouraged to do so by your guide, please do not touch the palms, plants or flowers.  They’re sensitive you know!  Questions of your guide are encouraged.  And, please stay on the paths, walkways or lawn areas.

 Photography in the gardens

Feel free to take as many pictures as you wish.  Ample time will be provided along the tour for such to be done.  Your favorites can be submitted to Tommy and Patty for inclusion – with credit given – on this site.

 Weather policy

Just like the jungles themselves, we are open come rain or shine!  However, remember that tile can be slippery when wet.  Accordingly, please exercise caution when walking on such in the garden entrance and on first four terraces. On the ensuing terraces the paths are concrete block or grass and, as a result, not slick.
