Win a trip to Mérida with just a photo, Facebook share and the right hashtag. Handout photo

Here’s an interesting promotion for couples living near Mexico City, Monterrey, Puebla or Villahermosa. Win an all-expense-paid trip to Mérida just for sharing a funny, romantic or creative photo of yourselves on Facebook.

Just make sure the hashtag #VenaMéridaBlanca is represented somewhere in the photo.

Four couples will win air transportation, five-star accommodations — such as Villa Verde or the InterContinental Presidente — services of a tour guide and meals in top restaurants. The promo is being coordinated by Marilia Villarreal Garza, head of the city’s tourist office.

Here is what you do:

Like the fan page Ven a Mérida Blanca.

Take a picture with your partner where the hashtag #VenaMéridaBlanca appears. Share it publicly on the fan page, and use the hashtag in your description. Make sure it’s in public mode so non-Facebook friends can see it.

Send a link of the photo, your background information by private message or to by midnight Sunday, March 6, 2016 before midnight.

This is a promotion exclusively for inhabitants of the D.F, Monterrey, Puebla, Villahermosa and their respective metropolitan areas. Winners — one couple from each city — will be selected by a jury on March 9. The jury will weigh in based on originality, visual impact and quality. Their decision is final. Photos with sexual content will be disqualified. Plagiarism will also constitute a non-starter.

The dates of each trip will be agreed upon according to the availability of the winners and sponsors.

For more information: (999) 925-5186, or Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
