Some Tinder users swipe right for sex, some for love. No one swipes right expecting to win a free trip to Central America, but that's exactly what happened to Marsha from Chicago.
Yep, that's right. Yesterday (February 5th), the Belize Tourism Board gave her a free trip to their tropical paradise of a country.
Are you jealous yet? Don't be, because you could be next. To celebrate Valentine's Day, the Board is giving away two more trips, one to LA and one to NYC, both cities that offer direct flights to Belize. This isn't just a quick weekend getaway, either. Each trip includes flights, a five-night stay for two and a full itinerary of things to do and places to see.
You need to be 21 to qualify, but swiping right doesn't guarantee you a free vacay. The Board chooses people based on how well their personality aligns with the destination. For the Belize trip, they were specifically looking for a laidback, outgoing person who loves adventuring and good food.
Marsha's profile caught their attention because her photo shows her doing a headstand on a paddleboard -- not exactly your run-of-the-mill hobby.
"This is still so crazy! I'm not that lucky so I am still pinching myself!" Marsha told us. She's never been to Central America before and plans to bring her friend who snapped the paddleboard pic of her.
Now we can all go back to our mundane lives of mindlessly swiping through Tinder with the hope that maybe, just maybe, one of those right swipes will lead to something far more exciting than an unwanted di-- pic.
