The climate of Puerto Vallarta (Mexico)
Puerto Vallarta is a popular seaside resort on the west coast of
Mexico situated on the Bay of Banderas. Puerto Vallarta is the second
largest seaside resort in Mexico, mainly because many cruise ships
make a stop-over here. Many hotels have also been built in the
neighboring town of Neuvo Vallarta. This town is not a part of the
municipality of Puerto Vallarta and is even situated in a different
province. However, many travel agencies do classify Nuevo Vallarta
(New Vallarta) as being in the same province as Puerto Vallarta,
Jalisco. Puerto Vallarta has a subtropical climate with hot and wet
summers and warm and dry winters. During the summer most storms remain
