Puerto Vallarta is located approximately midway along the western coast of Mexico. The shore is actually in the Bahia de Banderas, which leads out to the Pacific Ocean. This is the heart of the Mexican Riviera and Puerto Vallarta is second only to Cancun as the most popular tourist destination in the country.
Puerto Vallarta has a wet season, running from June through October, but the rest of the year is dry. When temperatures go up the prices go down, as summer months can be very hot and humid, with highs in the upper 80’s F. Between September and December the climate is more pleasant, with highs ranging from upper 60’s to upper 70’s F and with only the occasional shower. The best time to visit is December through March; though as this is the high season expect prices to be a little higher.
