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) $6,000 Pesos a year.

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 LGBTQ+ 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 the anniversary of the listing.
