I want to complain about a story

PVDN is a ‘one man show’, I just don’t have the resources to field emails about someone being offended by a news topic published on PVDN.

I have a real estate question

ALL real estate listed on PVDN has a link to contact the owner or listing agent directly. PVDN only publishes real estate listings and vacation rentals as a service to our readers. PVDN does not deal in real estate or vacation rentals and cannot assist in finding real estate or answering real estate questions. Please contact the agent of any property listed on PVDN or for general information, any real estate agent in Puerto Vallarta will be happy to assist you.

I want to add my website link as a resource on a story

No thank you. We do not accept solicitations (spam) requesting that we link to your website from an article on PVDN.


Facts and information about PVDN

Who owns PVDN?

PVDN is owned by Gotcha Brands, a branding and marketing company specializing in corporate, product and personal branding. The company is 15-years old and owned by Ian Hayden Parker with 13 employees and freelancers working in marketing, publishing, and creative design in the U.S. and Mexico.

How does PVDN obtain the content they publish?

PVDN publishes a mix of content, including original content, submitted stories from local individuals, and press releases from businesses. We also license the publishing rights of content written by professional hard-working journalists at the Associated Press and Reuters News. We translate, edit, and/or curate news stories from Spanish publications and media outlets in Mexico to serve important stories to our Engish-speaking readership.

Why do you have advertisements?

The short answer is that we offer content for free, but the content is not free for PVDN. We pay licensing fees to Associated Press and Reuters, along with the expenses involved with managing a high-traffic website (paying for large amounts of web storage and bandwidth). We need to cover the costs of internet and technology used to publish news (computers), and managing PVDN is a full-time job, so a salary needs to be generated for living expenses. Some news sites have decided to require a monthly subscription, we have made the decision to keep PVDN free to users, therefore we need to monetize our site in other ways to continue its operation. Thank you for understanding! You are welcome to contact us and we will offer individual subscriptions for $99.00 a year and provide you a login that will make our website ad-free when you visit. But we prefer not to make this a requirement to use our site.

How can I work for PVDN

PVDN is a very small operation, not a large company. We manage our business with two people, that’s all we need. Sorry, we don’t have any employees at PVDN. We have employees with our branding company, a seperate company from PVDN, but we are currently fully staffed at ¡Gotcha! Branding.
