Puerto Vallarta

Your Puerto Vallarta vacation

Drenched in sunshine, Puerto Vallarta draws outdoor enthusiasts to its rugged Pacific Coast with over 40 distinct beaches, each one different from the next. Explore hidden coves, go scuba diving or settle along the shore to watch the sunset. Now a fully modern resort town, it's still a spot loaded with archaeological wonders and iconic architecture.

Let Orbitz help you plan the perfect Puerto Vallarta vacation, complete with visits to botanical gardens and artsy enclaves. With insider tips, you'll get the scoop on the best time to go, where to explore and what to eat during your Puerto Vallarta getaway.

  • Sporting a tropical climate, Puerta Vallarta's average temperatures range from the low 70s to the low 80s. Heat spikes are common in August and September when the mercury can climb well into the 90s. Winter is driest, and February and March are sunniest. Temperatures climb from July to mid-October when monsoon-like rains are common, especially at night.

    To sync the weather with crowds, fall and early summer are more laid-back and you can find lower rates. Mid-November through April is peak season so plan well in advance.

    Annual festivals include the Flower and Garden Festival, held during the last week of February, and the arts-driven May Festival, which nods to Puerto Vallarta's anniversary. Not to be overlooked is the Festival of the Virgin of Guadalupe in December.

  • Playa de Oro

    For beachfront serenity, visit Puerto Vallarta's northern reaches, home to rock-frocked Playa de Oro.

  • Marina district

    Get a taste of the local flavor in the marina part of town where you'll find many unpretentious, locally loved restaurants that specialize in seafood.

  • Public markets

    Hit the public markets Mercado Isle Cuale and Mercado Municipal Cuale, where you'll find stands selling artisan wares.

  • Dining tip

    Be sure to seek out ceviche and Huachinango Sarandeado, a dish of red snapper infused with a garlicky roasted red pepper flavors.

  • De Santos

    Add a little disco to your paella. This hip, rustic restaurant on Juarez Street (downtown) mixes the candlelit vibe with late-night DJs.
