Puerto Vallarta, the perfect destination for your winter holidays

Thinking of where to spend your winter holidays this year? How about a lush beach paradise embraced by majestic mountains, exotic jungle, and the cool breeze facing the Pacific Ocean? A town filled with history, charm, a real taste of Mexico, and a vibrant lifestyle to suit every travelers’ taste? Yes! Think no further, come visit Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta is the perfect destination for your upcoming winter holidays. We all want to get away from the cold winters and spend our holidays in a place with perfect weather. During the winter months the temperatures in Puerto Vallarta range between 62°F and 81°F (17°C and 27°C), so you’ll enjoy days of sun and cool breeze, warm and balmy without humidity and hardly any rainfall like in the summer months. So, don’t worry, you won’t need to pack your coats and jackets, on the other hand, swimsuits and light clothes are what you’ll wear once you’re here.

This winter, after experiencing a global health situation that affected everyone, restrictions are slowly being lifted, travelling is finally taking back its usual pace, and people from cold places, especially Canada, are able to travel again. Many airlines are back in the skies, and many direct and connecting flights from Canada and the US are returning to Puerto Vallarta, so you can enjoy this paradise that has it all. Make sure to check out our note on travel routes* to Puerto Vallarta from Canada, the US, and Europe. 

Hotels are back to their regular capacity, still following strict guidelines and protocols to ensure your safety. Restaurants are operating at 90% of their capacity, and bars, clubs, and casinos will be operating at 75% of their maximum capacity. While in town, you can help us ensure everyone’s safety by still wearing a mask, using hand sanitizer, and keeping a social distance when possible. 

Winter days in this beach destination can be enjoyed fully, as the days are long due to the geographical proximity with the Equator. There is lots to do in the outdoors, including hikes, ecotourismextreme adventures, boat rides, swimming with wild dolphins and of course, sunny days by the beach sipping your favorite refreshing drink or cocktail. Choose one or many beaches to visit during your stay!
