Puerto Vallarta – Still Good

September in Puerto Vallarta
September in Puerto Vallarta is wet. It rains a lot and the humidity is probably at its highest during this time of year. Many people consider September the end of summer but in Puerto Vallarta, it’s not yet close to autumn. Even October can be very hot and humid, sometimes through to the first couple of weeks of November. September brings the wonderful lush environment that teems with life and sound, and provides livelihoods for many.
Arriving at the airport in September is like walking into a wall of heat, when one steps off the airplane. It keeps skin moist and supple, and we’ve been told it’s one of the main reasons people in Puerto Vallarta do not age as quickly as normal. Nature’s moisturizer really works. Step out of the shower and towel off, and within minutes, it feels like you forgot to get yourself dry!
September is a lazy time in Puerto Vallarta. Some businesses close for the month to give themselves and employees an annual break. People go to the beach, float around their pool, drink copious amounts of water and stay up late at night to enjoy the freshness once the sun goes down. Rain is also a very welcome event because though it’s wet, it cools things down somewhat.
Some call September in Puerto Vallarta Septihambre, which is a twist on the word hambre, which means hungry. This is because there’s less work and therefore less money, usually for those who need it most, since it’s not easy to salt money away when one is only making enough to get by. Because of this, we use our spare time and pesos to give to local charities this time of year. We help gather dispensas, which are packages that provide for families in need. They contain beans, rice, cooking oil, powdered milk, bottled water and dry good to make soups, as well as fresh produce and sometimes bag of oranges for the children. Local hospitals sponsor these drives and are always very pleased to accept donations.
Puerto Vallarta can be somewhat quiet in September but that’s largely the appeal for being here this time of year. There are less people and though some businesses are closed, the ones that remain open are less busy. Going to your favorite restaurant won’t mean a wait. The beach is always less crowded and service can be great, with waiters looking for big tips to compensate for Septihambre.
Que es cómo es.
