Has anyone been to PV in August?

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

We are in the works of planning a site visit to Dreams PV in August, probably the 10-13th. I just read tho that Aug and Sept. are extremely rainy, and one site said specifically "do not go in August". That stinks.

I've been (years ago) and it does rain, daily. But its still hot! The rain comes and goes, usually in the evening. When it hits, it hits hard, but usually very short amount of time. Does that make any sense??

Yes, that does make sense. Sounds like it's pretty much the same as the Riviera Maya area (that's where we usually go). We went there (RM) last Aug and it was very spotty like that. As long as it's not pouring down rain every day all day, lol

amy is right...i've been in late august and it was really hot and it did rain a few days but the rain storms are really short (w/alot of rain) but pass quickly and the days stay really hot and humid.

Bleh, hot n' humid sounds gross but August just happens to work really well with our schedule. I think since this is more of a "business-like" scouting trip and less of a "relax poolside or by the beach" vacation that it should be ok. Right...?

On another note, why do I always go shopping right before and buy cute outfits and do my hair and makeup all up when it ends up looking like I've been out jogging in the sun all day by the time we step out our door. smile105.gif

At least the weather in May should be much nicer...

Ditto to what the other ladies said. When I was there in August it rained every afternoon, like somewhere between 3 and 5pm. There were also beautiful thunder and lightening storms. We would just sit on our balcony and watch then go back out after it stopped. It is super hot then, maybe that's why people say don't go? But it's still amazing so no worries.

The great thing about Vallarta during the rainy season is that you get the most spectacular skies and sunsets because of the clouds.

 

And as long as you have a Plan B for the rain, you will be happy. People will say things like "it only rains in the afternoon" but weather is never predictable.

Thanks ladies. Actually tho we've decided to postpone our trip until December. I am still really sick with Mono and we have decided that we just can't take the chance of me getting down there and feeling like crap. I realllllly wanted to go now but I think it's just asking too much and it feels forced. Plus the time we are planning on going is right after finals so that will be a really great treat and thing for us to look forward to. AND I hear there are dolphins and sea turtles in the bay during the winter! How exciting!
