Puerto Vallarta is a global travel destination boasting sunny weather, sandy beaches, restaurants, bars, and an array of activities suitable for all interests, ages, and fitness levels.
Many travel agents suggest the ideal time to visit Puerto Vallarta is from November to June when the weather is dry and not too hot, and the high season is in full swing with visitors thronging the Malecon and the beaches.
For others, July is one of the best times to spend on Mexico’s Pacific coastline. The rainy season and the hot and humid weather haven’t quite begun in earnest, and except for a few high-season stragglers, it is quiet enough, so you don’t feel claustrophobic.
The Puerto Vallarta weather in July is usually in the mid to high eighties, with around eight hours of daily sunshine. Rainfall is generally in the afternoon or evening, with short but sometimes heavy bursts. As a result, the surrounding mountainside sprouts into life and shines with a lush emerald green of tropical resplendence.
As the tourist season runs down, it becomes easier to book many top attractions, with many offering cheaper deals due to the increased availability. Here are a few of the top things to do in Puerto Vallarta in July:
Rhythms Of The Night is a spectacular show in Las Caletas, an isolated beach only accessible by boat. The five-hour extravaganza starts with a cruise along the bay, followed by a three-course meal upon your arrival. The highlight of the evening is a show of acrobatics, music, and special effects. The boat ride home has complimentary cocktails and live music, a truly breathtaking way to enjoy your vacation.
Take a boat ride to the tropical outpost of Yelapa and the isolated beach cove of Majahuitas, considered the best beach on the Bay of Banderas. The tour includes kayaking, paddleboarding, and snorkeling in the crystal clear and balmy July waters of the Pacific ocean. In Yelapa, hike the short distance to a hidden waterfall or browse the local artisanal stores.
While it is easy to enjoy Puerto Vallarta’s weather in July, there are times you will want to escape from the heat of the day. And if chocolate is your weakness, the Bean To Bar Chocolate Workshop will appease your guilty pleasure and allow you a couple of hours out of the sun. The workshop is perfect for small groups where you will learn the history of Mexican cacao, how to make chocolate, and prepare chocolate drinks. The Bean To Bar Chocolate Workshop is perfect for children and adults, with bi-lingual instructors.
Mexico is synonymous with great food and drink. The Mexology Tacos & Tequila Tour allows you to sample the best of both while you take in the unique atmosphere of city life. The four-hour tour lets you discover some of the best local cuisines, washed down with craft beer, cocktails, tequila, raicilla, and mezcal. Strictly adults only.
