Puerto Vallarta is a town of seasons; its tourism, like most, is dictated by the weather and seasons. Knowing where and when to go is choosing between a vacation that is enriching and one muddled by erratic conditions.
With a climate categorized as sub-tropic, Puerto Vallarta is capable of rendering 300 clear sunny days a year, leaving the vacation planning process one of great prospect. The weather is often compared that of Hawaii's. During the daytime, temperature averages between 80 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit, slipping down to a cool, breezy 70 to 75. Although the highs stay about the same throughout the year, the low for the summer does not leave much leeway for anything but skimpy attire, ranging between 80 and 85 at night.
Like any other location, however, Puerto Vallarta is susceptible to bouts of gloomy weather, typically falling between Mid-June through Mid-October. But what keeps tourists flowing through the saggy, historic streets of the town's center is not the expectation for glowing weather but, instead, the knowledge that what they are experiencing is something completely detached, unique, from neighboring Mexican cities. What Puerto Vallarta lacks in boldname clubs and hotels and activities is a quaint township and a culture devoid of much outside persuasion. Puerto Vallarta's visitors are understanding of its inherent beauty, a beauty that is not defined by stretching beaches and towering resorts.
As always, we suggest organizing vacations and booking stays at Puerto Vallarta hotels around a week between November and June, preferably during the early or late months of the year, the off-season, that, when combined, should make for a memorable experience.
