Summer never ends in Puerto Vallarta, & neither do the endless amounts of wet & wild recreation, rich local culture, & fresh-caught culinary delights that fill our quietest season of the year with such bountiful delights.
Ours is a land of endless summer, with seasonal averages between 80º F in the winter and 88º F during the warmest months (also considered our rainy season, even though we have roughly 345 days of sun all year). But if the rare storm passes through for an hour or the heat happens to get a bit high, there are all sorts of fun summer things to do in Puerto Vallarta that are sure to keep you cool. A few of our favorites include:
Learn To Kitesurf, Paddleboard, or Scuba Dive
With over 25 miles of pristine beaches and warm Pacific waters for frolicking, why not expand your water sports repertoire with refreshing lessons from Pacific Paddle (great for kitesurfing), Puerto Vallarta Tours (their flyboards are WILD!), or Vallarta Adventures (an ideal program for PADI scuba certification).
Cultivate Yourself with Air-Conditioned Culture
When the temperatures rise, you can always head indoors and spend some time in air conditioning. While you’re at it, we recommend doing so in the sacred comfort of PV’s most iconic landmark, the Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe (Calle Hidalgo 370), browsing the maritime collection of Museo Naval (Calle Zaragoza 4), or enriching your family in Los Mangos Library (Av Francisco Villa 1001).
Find the Freshest Bite in Town
Whether you make it to the weekly Ceviche & Aguachile Market at Los Muertos Pier every Tuesday, or do your own tasting tour between the inspired creations at Cevicheria Juan Tiburon (Viena 309) and the traditional fare of Cevicheria El Güero (Francisco I. Madero #291), there’s a reason ceviche holds such a special place in the heart of locals and visitors alike: the citrusy chilled seafood dish is a core-cooling culinary delight on a hot summer day.
