There are, however, better times to travel depending upon your interests and vacation goals. Known for its tropical summers and dry winters, most people plan their Mexico getaways during the dry season, which begins in November and lasts until April.

Flights are typically less money than during the winter months, and you can typically find great resort specials. May and June are even better for family travel, right after Spring Break has ended.
Although summer is typically Puerto Vallarta's low season, summertime travel is on the rise. Avoid the crowds and experience this seaside gem between June and September and fall in love with the stunning natural beauty and fun things to do during summer.
