Everybody has heard at least once about the marvellous hills and gorgeous landscapes New Zealand has to offer. What not everybody knows, though, is that the faraway country has so much more to show you-if you only are willing to, quite literally, look below the surface.

To celebrate International Mermaid Day, Tourism New Zealand and the Professional Association of Diving Instructors are looking to bring you on an adventure to discover just that the beauty of the world’s most hidden gem, the ocean.

The two organizations just launched a contest to give one lucky traveller from the US the chance to discover all the wonders the ocean brings to New Zealand territories, including one of the top dive spots in the world, dubbed The Poor Knights Island Marine Reserve, and Rikoriko Cave, described as one of the world’s largest sea caves.

The lucky winner won’t have to worry about planning anything. In addition to the underwater scuba experience, the traveller will be treated to roundtrip flights (which aren’t cheap to New Zealand!) as well as accommodation for the duration of the three-night stay, and they will be gifted a fun merchandise selection as well.

Starting today, you have until April 26 to submit your entry, after which a winner will be picked. To do so, you can visit this link.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
