Weather for PV
For those not as fond of high temperatures, the rainy season from June thru October brings tropical breezes and afternoon showers that drop the humidity levels and provide relief from the summer heat. This washes the streets clean and leaves the city fresh while generally not interfering with the usual daytime activities. The spectacular thunderstorms brought on by the rainy season provide extraordinary light shows and a great way to spend a romantic evening for two.
The weather in Puerto Vallarta is perfect for outdoor activities whether you like golfing, deep sea fishing, sailing or relaxing on the beach. Sharing the same latitude as Hawaii, Puerto Vallarta is a perfect getaway from the biting winter cold and, as many Americans and Canadians are discovering, an ideal climate to retire.
