Upgraded listings get more engagement and get direct commission free bookings

Puerto Viejo Satellite is the most comprehensive and most popular information source for Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica and the surrounding Costa Rica Caribbean communities of Cahuita, Cocles, Punta Una, Manzanillo and more. We have the most comprehensive map of the area, the most complete and up to date information pages on topics such as transportation, weather, tours, safety and much more. And we've been here with you since 2006.

Keeping this information up to date is a huge effort. Since the pandemic we have not accepted advertising from businesses so users see a unbiased list of businesses and choose the option that is best for them.

But we also support local businesses who support our efforts. We get a small amount of income from referals to travel booking sites like booking.com but we'd rather local businesses kept 100% of their booking dollars rather than pay commissions to a multinational. By choosing an upgraded listing your hotel, vacation rental or other business will have direct links to your website and whatever booking engine you would like.

Your upgraded listing will also:
• Be shown at the top of the list for the category it is shown in (unless the user sorts the list in other ways)
• Have a icon marking your business as a supporter
• Prominently include your website on your listing page and well as the any directory pages you are listed on (such as the page for restaurants or the page for Playa Chiquita). We do not include websites for regular listings except for non-profits and other situations at our discretion.
• Have all your social media channels linked. Unpaid listings we include them only at our discretion.
• Have a clickable WhatsApp link listed so your customers can contact you easily
• Have your own image included below your description which you can change as you like. This could be a special, your schedule of events or a flyer
• Have a facebook like button directly on its listing page
• Include more photos if you like
