In respect to this, are there whales in Puerto Vallarta?

Puerto Vallarta is home to one of the world's great creatures - the humpback whale. From Mid-December through March, these waters are filled with magic, as the humpbacks come here to calve. You almost can't go on a boat ride during these months without seeing the whales breaching (jumping) near your boat.

One may also ask, when can you see whales in Mexico? The whale watching season in Mexico is reasonably short: December to March each year.

Thereof, can you see whales in Puerto Vallarta in December?

Every year whale watching season in Vallarta runs from December to March, but if you are lucky, you may even see some of these massive beasts as early as November or as late as May. It all depends on the temperature of the water, mating patterns, and how long the trip from the Arctic takes.

What is the best place to go whale watching in Mexico?

You can enjoy whale watching in Los Cabos or other places in Baja California Sur, in Puerto Vallarta or along the Riviera Nayarit. However, humpbacks are seasonal visitors in Mexico as they come from the cold Atlantic Ocean to the warmth of the Pacific. Their winter stay lasts from December through March.
