    It's hot here and I hates it! GENERALLY, the end of September/beginning of October are some of the hottest weeks of the year here in Vallarta. It always seems that the weather gets hotter and hotter and hotter until it "breaks" and then, suddenly, things just feel cooler and life is roses again . Last year I marked October 13th as the last "burning hot" day of the summer fall season and the days after that as rosey delights . This year, however, it's still hateful hot as I write this on October 27th. While I pray to the god/buddha/mohammed of "oh please oh mighty one cool this place down", I will let you know when the weather finally "turns" .

    As Vallarta turns, to be cont.......

      I can vouch for Mishka. I was in Vallarta last week and it was miserable! I couldn't believe how hot it was and many of the locals told us that it is usually not like that past the middle of October. Man it was HOT.....but, we loved it there. It is gorgeous and can't wait to get back!

        I will concur - our wedding was October 18 in PV at Las Caletas. We melted. But I love PV all the same! A little heat couldn't ruin anything.

          Thanks Miska, I was planning for Oct. 09 but this is good info and I will postpone until Nov. 09, ugughgh I don't want to wait a whole year but this is a good reason to.

            Okay - I've been holding out on ya'all - but mostly because I'm still cranky that we haven't been able to shut the air off at night yet.

            ANYWHO - THE WEATHER broke at the beginning of last week ... what that means is you can go walking around downtown in the shade AND NOT SWEAT (well, you can if you're use to our climate ... I mean I can walk around downtown and not sweat . AND you can walk around in the sun and sweat like a normal person - instead of taking a step outside of air conditioning and instant drippage due to humidity. Nighttime is downright beeeyoootiful....

            as vallarta turns....still turning :).

                Mishka, I was looking at the weather forecast and it still looks hot! Well to me, at least. Here's to hoping that the weather gets a little cooler on Saturday when I am out getting married!

                  As long as you stay out of the sun you should be okay ... really! :):). I know the numbers look sortof high, but it's the loss of humidity and the wind is cool - that's how I can tell the weather has shifted. If you're down by the beach, you might even be a little chilly... if you're from the LA area, I think the climate will be slightly similar, with a bit more humidity.

                  If you're from northern ca ... well, you might find it a wee bit warm .

                  And congratulations ahead of time! :):):)

                    Ah, I am accustomed to N. Cal weather, but I'm usually freezing, so maybe it'll be perfect! Thanks!
