Weather & what to wear

Puerto Vallarta enjoys great tropical climate all year-round, average daytime temperatures of 80ºF (27°C) and cooler evening temperatures during the winter months. Summers are sunny with afternoon rains, just enough to cool things off so you can enjoy your evening activities.

December to February (winter months):

Daytime: temperate and you can easily wear light clothes.
Nighttime: if you are from the area you put some warmer clothes like a light sweater, a cotton jacket or a long-sleeve shirt, but if you are from a cold climate, you'll be fine with short sleeves.

March to June

Very light clothes, this period is hotter than the winter months with some wind, careful with short light skirts.

Temperatures

July to mid-October

The rainy season begins, bring rain clothes or an umbrella which is better so you don't have an extra layer in this hot humid weather. Get a cheap umbrella in town. It's important that you know that it does not rain all day and every day. It may rain a bit in the morning, a bit during the day and then most of it at night, it's intermittent and for short runs, it doesn't get in the way of touring and enjoying the area, it is actually a blessing as temperatures actually go down. Temperatures rise to around 90 - 93ºF (32 - 34 ºC) on some days, specially during August and September and it is very humid, expect to sweat quite a bit, so bring extra shirts or blouses, cold showers will be a regular treat during the day. A good tip is to bring a water spray along to cool down.

Mid-October to beginning of December

Temperatures decrease, the rain stops, very little wind, you should use light summer clothes, you might need long sleeve clothes in the afternoon and night if you are accustomed to high temperatures. This period is great as high season hasn't arrived yet and you can get good deals.
