PUERTO VALLARTA CLIMATE INFORMATION

Puerto Vallarta has a typical tropical climate, with nearly constant temperature and humidity year round.  Pick up a pair of Maui Jim Sunglasses and some major sunblock before you come down.  The rainy season runs from June through Mid-October, with virtually no precipitation the rest of the year.  Even in rainy season, the rain normally falls in short bursts, most often at night, with most days being hot and dry.  Tours and fishing trips are seldom affected by the weather in Puerto Vallarta, it's very rare.

PUERTO VALLARTA HURRICANE SEASON

Puerto Vallarta is virtually immune from hurricanes.  The Bay of Banderas acts as a natural barrier, dragging the storms out to sea, or further up the coast.  Only once in the past 35 years has Puerto Vallarta experienced damage from a hurricane. 

On October 25, 2002, Category 5 Hurricane Kenna brushed by Puerto Vallarta, and the storm surge caused $101 Million in damage to the city's shores while 100 people were injured.  In 2006, Hurricane John gave the area a scare, but brushed by without incident.
