Due in large part to its breathtaking setting, enviable location on one of the world’s largest and most breathtaking bays, Baha de Banderas, idyllic climate, beautiful beaches, tropical surroundings, and rich history and heritage, Puerto Vallarta has become one of Mexico’s most popular tourist destinations over the past century or so.
If you’re thinking about taking a trip to this UNESCO World Heritage Site on Mexico’s Pacific coast, you might be wondering when is the ideal time of year to go. Even though school holidays coincide with the summer months, which are usually popular, other times of the year may better fit your travel preferences. Many outdoor activities are best carried out in other seasons, when the weather is less muggy and wet but is still pleasant and sunny.
You may want to schedule your visit around some of the interesting activities and well-known celebrations listed on the local events calendar. For instance, community-wide celebrations of everything from the history of the country, Mexican cuisine, and fall holiday customs to sporting events, awareness marathons, beach parties, nightlife shows, health retreats, and more will take place this coming autumn.
