Puerto Vallarta When to Go

Sharing the same latitude as the Hawaiian Islands, Puerto Vallarta basks in a consistent subtropical climate. The rainy season runs from June through September. During this time, it may rain almost daily, though showers are primarily in the late afternoon or evening. Temperatures reach 90 degrees during the summer, as compared to the mid-80s in the winter.

As peak season (November to April) rolls around, fetes like the International Gourmet Festival bring in the masses and cause prices to shoot up. But if you’re an avid foodie, it’s well worth it to savor the fare with other epicureans. This ten-day culinary fest showcases some 20 international guest chefs who join local chefs in presenting winemaker dinners, cooking classes, and tequila pairings.

There’s also Art Walk season, which runs from the last Wednesday in October through the last Wednesday in May. Wander from gallery to gallery with libations in hand to chat with the artists and peruse all genres of paintings. Since all Art Walk participating galleries are situated in Centro Historico, strolling from one to another is a breeze.

To avoid the bustle and get more bang for your vacation buck, consider May or October. The weather is pleasant, businesses are open but not jam-packed, and discounted rates are available at most hotels.

Other celebrations include the Vallarta Wine Festival and Puerto Vallarta Regatta in February, the Nautical Festival and Banderas Bay Regatta in March, San Sebastian Cultural Weekend and Puerto Vallarta Restaurant Week in May, Dia de Charro and Mexican Independence Day in September, Dia de la Revolucion in November, and the Fiesta de Guadeloupe and Puerto Vallarta Film Festival in December.
