322 days of sunshine a year makes Puerto Vallarta a very attractive year-round destination. The resort has a typically tropical climate, with distinct wet and dry seasons. June through to October is hot and wet, with average temperature highs of more than 30°C, but there is often heavy rainfall for one or two hours in the afternoon. The winter is cooler (between 26 and 29°C) with barely any rain and so is the most popular time to visit.
There are a number of peak holiday periods in Puerto Vallarta; over Christmas, around Easter and July to August. The winter months are particularly popular as they are dependably dry and warm, although this means the resort is crowded and prices can rocket.
The hot wet summer months are the low season, with many put-off by the high humidity and heavy rainfall that often occurs during the afternoon. However the rain rarely lasts more than a couple of hours and the occasional tropical storm can be a spectacle in its own right.
