Cancun, Q.R. – Visitors to Cancun and the Riviera Maya will have an easier time navigating around the city to find attractions with the interactive Cancun Smart Map.
Released at the end of June 2014, the Cancun Tourism and Convention Center launched the app to reflect the interests of tourists to the city as well as a way to make the most of their stay. It allows them to find everything from beaches to shopping malls to entertainment venues around Cancun and into the Riviera Maya.
The digital map of the Cancun Smart Map is updated by GPS and Google Maps, while other aspects of the app are continually upgraded with information from embassies, consulates, exchange currencies and municipal offices.
The app is complete with the locations of all Blue Flag beaches in and around Cancun as well as discount offers that are updated constantly from local Cancun restaurants, attractions, tour operators and more.
The interactive map shows distances between places including hospitals, ATMs, markets, bus stops, shopping malls and taxis. A special tap section allows users to access photos and reviews with contact information. Cancun Smart Map is also outfitted with a complete directory of important places such as police and emergency services, car rentals, airlines and consulate offices.
There is a section for news and events, an up-to-date currency converter, weather widget and live webcam feeds. The Cancun Smart Map works without an internet connection, saving visitors from international roaming fees.
