Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Part playing cards – part insider’s guide to Vallarta, Provecho Vallarta offers a “deck of a deal” to those in search of the area’s best businesses.
Last season, Ana Uribe, Karla Gonzalez, and Michelle Mayer-Fulfer developed a creative vehicle to support the ingenuity of local entrepreneurs. They wanted something fun, something cool, something easy to understand. What they came up with is a deck of cards – like playing cards. The deck was a huge hit and they are back this year with new additions in the little package that packs a punch. A wonderful way to Live More and Spend Less!
Deliciously compact, Provecho Vallarta’s deck features 52+ cards. Each card contains a description of a local restaurant or business and doubles as a $100 peso gift certificate to the business it describes. Retailing at $300 pesos, this $5200+ peso value is an innovative way to introduce customers to new spots and encourage them to revisit old favorites, including perennial favorites Café Des Artistes, Daiquiri Dick’s, Trio, Joe Jack’s Fish Shack, El Arrayan, Barcelona Tapas, Archie’s Wok,No Way José!, La Cigale and Coco’s Kitchen.
“Provecho Vallarta is a modern twist on the tired coupon. A way to save money with style," partner Ana says explaining the concept. “We realized that we are all creatures of habit and sometimes we need to shake it up a bit. Vallarta is a fun town. Why not create a cool and fun way to explore the city’s best dining and entertainment at a great value?"
Driven by a love of quality food, friends, and good times, Provecho Vallarta’s focus is to increase the visibility and continued viability of quality businesses. With this as the goal, the trio combed the region looking for first-rate spots. Stacked in every Provecho deck are businesses they love and vouch for. There are no “fillers."
Looking to include a broad selection of not only restaurants but also local entertainment, Provecho’s deck includes 38 Restaurants and Bars and 15 other varied businesses, including yoga studios, salons and spas, tours, shopping, and even a chiropractor!
Provecho Vallarta keeps the terms and conditions simple and universal. The 2013 deck is valid now through December 31, 2013. The discount is $100 pesos off a purchase of $250 pesos or more at any merchant partner (excluding other promotions, prix fixe menus and during Restaurant Week.) At $300 pesos a deck, customers have to use 3 cards and the deck has paid for itself. Who doesn’t treat themselves at least three times a year?
In continuing their support for the community, Provecho Vallarta has pledged to donate a percentage of each sale to the PEACE and Children of the Dump to aid in the continued good work of these worthy charities.
Provecho Vallarta’s 2013 decks are available now and can be purchased at various locations around town including: Joe Jack’s Fish Shack, The Deli at Daiquiri Dick’s, Mailbox Etc.
