Just as the Caribbean on the east coast goes through an annual hurricane season, so does the west coast.
In fact, both coasts have similar wet and dry seasons.
The eastern Pacific hurricane season begins May 15 and ends Nov. 30. The Caribbean season begins June 1 and ends Nov. 30 as well.
The average rainfall for most Mexican Riviera destinations spikes in June through September, especially in Acapulco, Manzanillo, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta. Ensenada and Los Cabos experience much lower rainfalls, according to historical data from the World Weather Organization.
Rainfall for some locations average as much as 12 inches during the peak months of activity.
The same locations with heavy rains in the late summer and early fall also have extreme dry conditions from February through April, when the average rainfall is often less than one inch per month.
Average temperatures are much more predictable with average highs from the low 80s Fahrenheit during the winter to the high 80s to low 90s during the summer.
