Best time to take a vacation to Puerto Vallarta

  • Best Time to Go

    Many people take their Puerto Vallarta vacations at any time except the summer for a couple of reasons. For starters, the weather is usually nice in other places during the summer, so there is no reason to visit a tropical location. Secondly, Puerto Vallarta gets a lot of rain in July, August and September, which can quickly ruin a vacation. These months are cheaper, however, so you can find a great deal. Do not miss the Festival Cultural de Mayo held during the last week of May and first week of June. This festival celebrates the city’s birthday, and festivities include displays of local talent in art, music, food vending, and traditional bullfights.

Puerto Vallarta highlights

  • Puerto Vallarta highlights
  • Playa de los Muertos

    Playa de los Muertos is one of the most popular beaches in Puerto Vallarta for good reason. Kick back on the clean sands before taking a dip in the crystal waters. Local vendors stroll the sands with grilled shrimp on skewers, perfect for a post-dip snack. If you think this place is phenomenal by day, just wait until sunset, when it comes to life with music and dancing.

  • Isla Rio Cuale

    This historic district offers beautiful views and landscapes, as well as a free-entry museum, the Museo Rio Cuale, filled with pre-Colombian ceramics. Travel along one of the suspension bridges before checking out the Mercado Municipal Rio Cuale for even more bargains on your Puerto Vallarta travels.

  • El Faro Lighthouse

    For the best views on your Puerto Vallarta vacation, take the hike to the top of the El Faro Lighthouse. The trip up the steps is a bit strenuous, but you'll be wowed by the gorgeous 360-degree view. Bring your camera and plenty of water, and whatever you do: Don't give up halfway – the view from the top is so worth it.

  • Old Town Market (Viejo Vallarta)

    Cruise around charming cobblestone streets and hidden alleyways to come across some of the best bargains in Mexico. Buy handmade pottery, silver jewelry and leather goods for insanely low prices, and peruse the sidewalk artwork by local artists.
