Vallarta Yacht Club sponsored the 6th Taste of Nuevo and the 18th Chili Cook-Off, events that took place last Saturday, December 1st, 2018 at the Nuevo Vallarta malecon and netted $90,000 pesos which will be equally divided between the Navy League’s “Toys for Tots” program, the International Friendship Club’s “Cleft Palate” program, and to the Nayarit Hurricane Victims relief effort.

Starting at 4:00pm, more than 25 restaurants, local business and volunteers were set up with a wide variety of delicious food, chili and home baked goods. In the restaurant, non-chili category, Eddie’s Place wowed the crowd with their Coconut Jumbo Shrimp and other beautifully prepared dishes to take the first place. Maizul, a new restaurant on the Nuevo Vallarta scene, take the second place.

The best commercial restaurant in the chili cook-off competition was Wine & Burger and the second place was for Estudio Café.

In the individual chili category, couples Li and Andy Barrow, Yoshei and Larry Butts, as well as Ana and Eric Bloomquist combined their efforts and took home first place. Second place in the individual category went to the folks from the international charitable sorority Beta Sigma Phi Nuevo Chapter in Nuevo Vallarta.

Vallarta Yacht Club thanks to all the restaurants who participated, to the local women of Nuevo Vallarta for a wonderful sale of homemade sweets, to the Conventions and Visitors Bureau of Riviera Nayarit for the publicity and music, and to all those who offered their time to create a couple of successful events.

“There are lots of reasons why we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles for several years. One of them is that they know pretty well their target, because they know who are their readers and they adapt as much as possible the content and material that is offered. For these reasons they have a growing number of readers which is very important for us. Another reason is that many people  —including us— think that the magazine has been as a serious publication since its beginnings. Historically, Vallarta Lifestyles has known how to capture the audience and has done it pretty well."

General manager

“We started to advertise 7 or 8 years ago and certainly it has helped us position our brand. Now that we have improved a lot in quality, processes and finished products, our marketing in the magazine is precisely to strengthen the leadership we have earned through the 13 years in the area. I also think that we also have grown with the advertisement and that it has been done and it has helped us get to where we are now.”

“Advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles is an easy and direct way to reach all of the visitors and new residents that arrive to the destination. Of the 30 years that the magazine has been in circulation, we have been advertising for 23 years and without any doubt, it has been worthy for the big positioning that we have achieved. Besides, the quality of contents its unique in this area.”
