Puerto Vallarta weather is tropical so we have hot, humid summers and warm, pleasant, dry winters. The average daytime temperatures in the summer are 85-95f. and nighttime temps are 75-85f. In the winter daytime temps are 75-85f. and nighttime temps are 55-70f.
The rain season here is usually from July to October with heaviest rains in August. A typical rainy day here is sun all day until about 4 pm and then clouding over and thunderstorms until after dark. When it rains, it can rain heavily in a short period of time and the streets often flood. Very few people consider rain to be a hindrance here and most appreciate the cooling effect of the rains. Life goes on, rain or shine. The weather is just part of life and activity, not an enemy of it.
Hurricane season officially is from May 15 to November 30 but hurricanes are rarely a direct threat to Puerto Vallarta because of the sheltering nature of the Bay of Banderas and the high mountains surrounding it.
