OUR GUIDE TO the weather in the Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit
Situated on the curve of the Pacific coast’s Bahia de Banderas is the busy town of Puerto Vallarta, overlooked by jungle-clad mountains and flanked by dozens of golden sand beaches. This is an excellent beach destination, with sunshine reputedly on 360 days of the year. Most rain falls between June - September, though it is hot and humid year round. Puerto Vallarta has a fiesta, show or parade seemingly most weeks of the year, from the folklore festival in April to Independence Day celebrations in September.
