Punta de Mita, Nayarit - Local non-profit PEACE has launched a membership program, providing an easy, beneficial way for businesses and consumers to give back to local communities throughout the Bay.
Discounts have been created by various cafes, restaurants, shops and activity centers, identifiable by a "PEACE Friendly Business" sticker, which are valid for one year. Residents and tourists are able to purchase a membership card for $300 pesos ($23 USD) and receive discounts from participating businesses. The annual fees are invested directly into local communities through PEACE’s four main programs that focus on education, entrepreneurship, ecology, animal well-being, and community engagement.
The PEACE membership program has drawn the following community conscious businesses thus far:
Babel Book Shop
The Twisted Rose
Pie in the Sky
Healing Hands Massage
PEACE Home Tours
"With the array of discounts that are offered, this membership pays for itself quickly," said Peter Doering, PEACE member. "The program has great benefits for both businesses and shoppers. Who wouldn’t want to join?"
