          I have wanted to visit the gardens for many years. Want to know how does one get there from British Columbia Canada? Assume Fly to LA to Mexico City and then rent a car? Is this expensive. There is an alert to avoid the highways in this area? Any safety issues to be concerned about from your experience? What is the cost per night to stay at Psado El Castillo? How long would one stay to experience the gardens?
