Punta Mita Weather in Summer

I am considering taking a family vacation to the Four Seasons at Punta Mita, and would like to know how rainy is it in the summer months of June, July, and August. The rates drop significantly in July, so I am afraid the weather can get dodgy then. I realize its the tropics, but I can't justify the cost savings if it rains consistantly during the day. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

we went last July, toward the end of the month. It was extremely hot and we had a little bit of rain, but it was overnight and in the early morning hours and it cleared up quickly.
The July rates are good; that's why we went, and the best rates go quickly, so don't dawdle too long !
It's a gorgeous resort, however, for me it's too far from Puerto Vallarta and the old town area, so I don't think we'll go again. However, for service, comfort, a beautiful spot, excellent swimming pool, you can't beat it.

In Puerto Vallarta (1 hour away) summer months are hot, humid, and it is the rainy season. That said it is normally showers or possibly storms that come and go, not a consistent downpour.

"The climate in the high season - October-May - is warm 80 to 85 Fahrenheit, 27 to 29 Centigrade (65F / 18C at night). We may have 1 or 2 days when it might rain a little in that whole period.
After April and until about June or July it will become increasingly warmer, to about 90 F or 32 C, and more humid (80F - 27C at night). Around mid June the rains begin. In the rainy season the humidity will increase during the day until the rain comes.
Normally, and I repeat Normally, it will rain for about 2 hours - very heavy with thunder and lightning - in the late afternoon, in the evening or sometimes in the middle of the night. It hardly ever lasts long unless there is a weather system of the coast."
