About Puerto Vallarta

Great Weather

The weather is friendly. Bring some suntan lotion, kick back and enjoy. Daytime temperatures average in the mid 80′s (30ºC) for much of Dec., Jan., Feb., and Mar. That’s why Sobriety Under the Sun is at the end of January, traditionally the best weekends of the year.

Spectacular Sunsets

Come join the thousands of “Visitantes” on every beach and rooftop across the town. Relax and be entranced by the greatest light show on the planet. As the sun slowly sinks into Banderas Bay, see if you can see the proverbial “green flash”. Aaah… Puerto Vallarta.

Friendly People

On the streets and byways of Vallarta you’ll feel the warmth and energy of the local people. They’re proud of their heritage and culture – and gracious to visitors. (Especially when a “Visitante” practices basic Spanish).

Here are a few Spanish words to get you started

“Buenos días” (bway nos dee ahs) – good morning

“Buenas tardes” (bway nahs tar days) – good afternoon

“Buenas noches” (bway nahs  noh chayss) – good evening

“Hola” (oh  lah) – hello

¿Cómo está? (coh moh  es tah) – how are you?

“Bien, gracias” (bee ayn, grah cee ahs) – I am well, thank you

“Por favor“ (por  fah vohr) – please

“Gracias” (grah cee ahs) – thank you

“Mucho gusto” (moo choh goos toh) – nice to meet you
