Want to know the weather for Playa Escondida, Sayulita and the Riviera Nayarit? Don't rely on the weather report for Puerto Vallarta.
Every day from now until the end of October you'll see the same forecast...Thunderstorms!
Puerto Vallarta is nestled between the Banderas Bay and a rugged mountainous peninsula. In the summer these mountains are fed a steady stream of warm, moist air from the inter-tropical convergence zone to the south. By mid-afternoon the mountain storms are sliding down their north side and frequently drench Vallarta with torrential downpours.
We are in a different climate zone in Sayulita.
Open ocean, rolling hills and gradual ascent to the coastal Sierra Madre mountain range here contrast with the topography of Puerto Vallarta. As a result our summer typically has sunny days with occasional evening thunderstorms. There is no weather forecast for Sayulita but there is a weather station in San Pancho, five miles up the coast at sanpanchoweather.com. Have doubts or want more information? Let us know!
