Puerto Vallarta is a great place to vacation, even during the summer. The summer season is actually the low season when it comes to tourism. So if you want a relaxing getaway without having to deal with lots of people, the summer and fall seasons are nice times to visit.
Plus, the rainy season occurs during the summer and fall months in Banderas Bay. Visitors to PV are always in awe of the majestic lightning and thunderstorm storms that summer storms create over Banderas Bay.
The abundant rain helps revive the local flora so that the surrounding greenery is fresh and new again. If you aren’t sure where to stay, check out the Villa Group Resorts. They have amazing amenities, excellent services, and comfortable accommodations.
They have special travel packages available right now that are affordable, too. Keep reading below about visiting PV in the summertime and fall.
Lightning and Thunderstorm Shows in PV
Summer has arrived in Banderas Bay along with lots of humidity and heat. The rainy season occurs during summer as well with lightning and thunderstorms that light up the evening sky. The Sierra Madre jungle is vibrant and green once again thanks to the badly needed precipitation.
During the winter and spring, many local plants remain in a dormant mode and store water in their roots to survive the dry season. Once the summer rains arrive, PV is converted into a lush and tropical oasis once more.
The Sierra Madre mountain greenery creates a striking contrast with the sparkling waters of Banderas Bay, which is the largest bay in Mexico. Despite being the rainy season, most days are still sunny with the storms arriving in the afternoons or evenings.
Visit Waterfalls and Swimming Holes
If you want to skip the beach for a day, take advantage of the area’s swimming holes that become perfect places for a dip during the summer. Local waterfalls and swimming holes become full of water thanks to the summer rainstorms.
Many of the best spots are located a bit inland so visitors will need to go hiking to reach them. El Salto Waterfall and swimming hole is one of the area’s best places to visit. You can hike inland from the town of Paso Ancho near downtown.
There, visitors will find a perfect swimming hole and a beautiful waterfall. Adventure seekers can even take a big jump off a steep rock ledge into the water below.
Another great spot to visit is the Palo Maria waterfall which is just south of downtown. Visitors and Puerto Vallarta residents love the area’s natural beauty which is best enjoyed during a morning hike in the Sierra Madre jungle.
Banderas Bay Lightning Displays
Puerto Vallarta is well known for its stunning thunder and lightning storms that occur during the summer rainy season. Incredible images will delight visitors when they watch an evening storm over Banderas Bay. If you stay at the Villa Group Resorts, you can enjoy some quiet time on your private balcony as you safely enjoy Mother Nature’s fireworks.
If you want to be on the beach, head down to the Malecon and you will find tons of restaurants and bars where you can enjoy dinner and a cocktail during a storm. The storms will refresh the air and cool down the air temperature as well for a much-needed break during the dog days of summer.
Another reason to visit Banderas Bay during the summer is that there are fewer people around. The high season occurs during the winter months when days are sunny and cooler.
