One of the reasons why travelers keep coming to Puerto Vallarta
is its moderate tropical weather
. It's frequently compared to the climate in Hawaii. Visitors will find that the weather in Puerto Vallarta
is ideal for a beach vacation because during the day temperatures rarely go below 80F and, except for some cooling showers, the sun shines for most of the year. You may want to bring an umbrella for the afternoons in the rainy season (from June to October), but a heavy jacket is only necessary if you are planning to go on a mountain excursion.
Winter, the tourist high-season, is warm and sunny. Temperatures range between 77 and 86F during the day, very comfortable for a beach stroll, and during the night they settle between 64 and 73F. Spring and autumn have moderate temperatures, while in summer they reach 92F and the humidity makes it feel hotter.
The atmosphere is relaxed wherever you go in Puerto Vallarta. Dress with the weather in mind. In winter nights are chilly, while in summer they are balmy. Cotton and other natural fibers are always comfortable for the day and light synthetic fabrics are perfect for the evenings.
