Many travelers, before visiting Cancun, only picture dazzling white sand beaches and turquoise blue waters, and while you will definitely find these things in Cancun, there is more to the city than the beautiful Caribbean Sea, and a new app will help visitors explore more of what it has to offer. The app, called “Discover Cancun,” was launched a few months ago and is geared specifically towards tourists visiting the popular Mexican Caribbean city. Smartphone users can currently download the app on both Android and IOS operating systems.
Once the “Discover Cancun” app is downloaded users will have a number of resources right at their fingertips. In it there is information on local bars and restaurants, both in the Cancun Hotel Zone as well as in the downtown area and descriptions of area attractions and activities. Users will also have access to special promotions through the app and discounts and coupons for various establishments throughout the city.
The new app gives the millions of tourists visiting Cancun each year an all-in-one option for discovering everything that the city has to offer. It comes at a perfect time because Cancun is seeing record numbers of tourists visiting so far this year and the city is expecting even more foreign visitors during the summer months. Since the beginning of the year hotels have been packed with tourists and current estimates show more than 3 million more visitors are expected this summer.
For future tourists, the app will be extremely useful for finding where to eat and what to do, both in the Hotel Zone and throughout the city and beyond. All of the information within the app is divided between categories which include:
- Restaurants and Bars
- Accommodations and Tourism
- Fashion and Accessories
- Home and Decoration
- Health and Beauty
- Technology and Gadgets
In addition to being a useful tool for visitors to Cancun, the “Discover Cancun” app can also be useful for locals as well. They are able to utilize the discounts just as a tourist can and the app may help them discover hidden gems in their own city. If a new restaurant or shopping establishment comes to town locals will know right away if they use the app.
One of the best things about this Cancun-focused app is that it is totally free, and not just for the users of the app but also for the businesses that want to advertise on the app too. Due to the fact that it is free for businesses it has received a fantastic response, with more than 180 already present within the app in some form. Some businesses are there just to advertise their services, while others are there to bring in more clientele by offering promotions and discounts.
While the “Discover Cancun” app is a great tool designed to help tourists get around Cancun and it provides useful information to locals and visitors alike, it is also a great tool for businesses to get noticed. Technology allows more businesses to reach more consumers and, in this case, there are millions of potential customers just waiting to discover all that Cancun has to offer. This is the perfect opportunity for local establishments to get their name out there to the millions of tourists and locals that are in the city at any given time.
The “Discover Cancun” app is the perfect tool for visitors who want to explore beyond the Cancun Hotel Zone and see more of the city. This should lead to it growing in popularity and even more businesses offering their services and promotions through the app in the future.
