When is the Best Time to Visit Puerto Vallarta?

The ideal time to visit Puerto Vallarta is between April and June, when the weather is pleasant and room rates are affordable. During these months, rainfall is scarce and there are fewer tourists compared to the peak winter season. However, if you're interested in whale watching, December to March is the best time. Puerto Vallarta has a tropical climate with high temperatures throughout the year, with dry and rainy seasons.

The hottest month of the year is May with an average daily high of 41° C and an average low of 23° C. The coolest month of the year is January with an average daily high of 36° C and an average low of 18° C. November to January is the most stable weather-wise. The advantage of coming when there are fewer tourists is that there are many great deals on flights and hotels during the summer months.

For travelers who want the tranquility of summer without the high humidity, this is the best time of year to visit Puerto Vallarta Mexico. Fall is not only one of the most affordable times to visit, but it's also the most colorful, as Mexicans celebrate the nation's Independence Day on September 16 (and the night before) and Day of the Dead on the first few days of November. Spring break begins in March, and for many families, it's the best time to visit Puerto Vallarta. Travelers will always debate which month has the best weather in Puerto Vallarta, and while there are more popular seasons, traveling each month has its own benefits.

Puerto Vallarta surprises outdoor enthusiasts with its palm-fringed coves, wildlife encounters and the pedestrian center.
