Winter is Puerto Vallarta’s high season; the temperatures are perfectly warm, but not too hot, and the weather is reliably sunny. This is just one of the reasons that so many snowbirds come to Puerto Vallarta when the frost descends on their hometowns. However, summer is an overlooked gem in Puerto Vallarta! The atmosphere gets even more laid back in summer, and, if you can take the heat, it’s also less busy at this time of year.
Here are some of the reasons as to why we think a summer vacation in Puerto Vallarta is a great option.
Those who are partial to swimming in the sea, but dislike the cold, will be pleased by the inviting ocean temperatures found in Puerto Vallarta during the summer months. The pleasantly warm waters make for perfect swimming, snorkelling, and diving conditions. A summer vacation in Puerto Vallarta means that it is never too cold to get wet in the ocean.
Lush Scenery in Puerto Vallarta
The tropical landscape which surrounds the town of Puerto Vallarta, and fills the Garza Blanca Preserve, is at its best during the summer months when increased rainfall encourages lush growth all over the mountains. It also means that there is plenty of water in the on-site waterfalls and rivers for you to enjoy.
Kids Will Have a Blast
The kids will be out of school by summer, too, and so it’s a wonderful time to enjoy a family summer vacation in Puerto Vallarta. The Garza Blanca Resort & Spa, in particular, offers extra kids activities in the summer to ensure that your little ones make memories!
If you have dry skin, or just like the heat, the balmy summer season in Puerto Vallarta will really suit you. Not only do you never have to bundle up, even at night, but your skin will glow in this climate.
Amazing Electrical Storms
The summer rains in Puerto Vallarta are spectacular, but perhaps most wonderful are the lighting storms which illuminate the night sky with dazzling displays, often out over the ocean. The rains tend to come at night, too, so though the odd shower may occur during the day, you will find that your sunbathing plans will remain generally unopposed by the weather. Just imagine watching an incredible lightning show from the comfort of your air-conditioned suite.
