Mexico is gearing up for its winter visitors. As a tool to attract visitors, Mexico is hosting a new marketing campaign. The campaign pokes fun at Hurricane Patricia that blew through Vallarta Nayarit and Manzanillo, Mexico on October 23 and caused no major damage. Now, Mexico wants “the good Patricias” to visit. Anyone named Patricia in the U.S. and Canada now has a chance to win an all-inclusive vacation for two to the region.

Patricias must upload a photo or video of themselves that proves they are ready for a trip to Mexico, just as Mexico was ready for the hurricane. Tweet or post your photo or video on Instagram using the hashtags #WelcomePatricias #Sweepstakes. The campaign is open until December 31.

Also gearing up for the winter season in Mexico are the whales. Humpback whales have been sighted in Banderas Bay in Riviera Nayarit. The whales stay in the area from December to March to give birth and are anticipated by many visitors to the region.
