Proof of Print Run

We print 12,000 copies of each edition of the guide. Proof of this can be found in the facturas that show how many were printed by Coloristas y Asociados (our printer) and that we paid for them.

Advertising Deadlines

There are four editions per year.  They start in October, and are two months apart.  The last one of the season is the summer edition, which goes out in April.  We deliver guides to all the local hotels and gay businesses every week year round.

Winter Edition December - January 1 Nov 15 Oct
Spring Edition February - March 1 Jan 15 Dec
Summer Edition April - Sept 1 Mar 15 Feb Website Listings and Advertising

We are not travel agents and do not charge commissions. Gay Guide Vallarta was conceived to help reduce commission charges for your business. We do not get involved in the reservation process, securing deposits, etc. Your listing leads to a website page of your choice somewhere on the internet where the customer typically will make the reservation and find additional information!

Non-Lodging oriented business listings

Non-lodging-oriented businesses (bars, shops, tours, etc) are free listings on the website, so long as they are gay friendly businesses. “Free Listings” consist of Name and Logo only.

Detailed Listings:

Includes: Name and Logo, Short and Long Descriptions, Links to sites, Images, Map, Events Calendar and space for Menu Images (restaurants and services) and a courtesy banner placement (displayed randomly). We will also include the Dot on the Map (if in Emiliano Zapata or Malecon Area) and a small blurb (free for Print Advertisers).

Monthly fee of $700 pesos. Payment is due on the 1st of each month. If you have multiple listings, contact us so that we may offer you a better quota.

Cabaret & Theatre listings: . $1,200 pesos a month.
Updates are made once a week to match your calendar online.

Lodging oriented business listings

Charges for website listings for lodging oriented businesses are based on the type of business. From single unit listings of condos, to rental and travel agencies, we provide an affordable listing program for your business.

  • Single unit lodging listing (examples: single condo, villa) $2,500 Pesos a Year

    Creates a property listing on the condo or villa page with a single rentable unit on the property. Condos will be grouped with other condos in the same building. If the single unit is gay owned, it will also be listed on the gay lodging page.

  • Multi-unit single location (examples: b&b, guest house, hotel, etc) $12,500 pesos/yr
    (NOTE: price for Gay Guide Vallarta paper guide advertisers is discounted to $5,000 pesos/yr)

    Creates a single property listing on the hotel, budget or resort page. The property can contain an unlimited number of rooms or room types and rate periods. Gay owned or oriented properties are also listed on the gay Lodging page.

  • Multi-unit, multi-location (examples: travel agent, rental agency) $25,000 pesos/yr
    (NOTE: price for Gay Guide Vallarta paper guide advertisers is discounted to $7,500 pesos/yr

    Creates an agency style account that can have multiple properties. Each property listing can have multiple room types and rate period dates independently of the other properties in the agency portfolio. Agencies are not permitted to duplicate listings made by the property owner or manager directly with Gay Guide Vallarta. (i.e. an agency cannot list THE JOE BLOW HOTEL in our database if THE JOE BLOW HOTEL has their own direct listing. Same for a condo owner that lists with an agency and directly with us.) Agency listings are not on the gay page unless paid separately as above.

WEBSITE Listings are usually billed annually on January 1st for the following year. Stats
