MEXICO CITY, October 15, 2010 –The Mexico Tourism Board has recently launched the Visit Mexico iPhone application — the first iPhone travel application to provide nationwide coverage. Users can select to receive information from six regions and all 32 states, in addition to receiving in-depth information about 27 top tourist destinations.
The app includes several features, such as online news and weather, interesting activities, videos and Google Map links for top destinations. The application also includes an interactive “piñata” game where users can shake the iPhone to receive a treat: a destination suggestion! By tapping the name of the suggested destination, users can learn more about its culture, cuisine, climate, geographical setting and much more. This is the perfect game for spontaneous travelers, who love nothing more than jetting away to new and enticing locales.
One of the best features of the application is the “Activities” section located on the home screen. By tapping into this section, users can learn more about Mexico’s wide range of activities. From beaches to camping to entertainment, users can see their favorite activities in a multitude of Mexican destinations, such as Tijuana, Cancun, Riviera Nayarit and Queretaro, among others. By using the application, users can also learn more about Mexico’s numerous World Heritage sites, festivals and rich history all with the “tap” of a button.
This revolutionary application now makes it easier than ever to plan a vacation! Whether you’re at home, waiting in line at the bank, riding the subway or simply taking a stroll, all you need to know about Mexico and its many offerings is right at your touch screen-tapping fingertips.
The Visit Mexico application is available in both English and Spanish and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad models (iOS 3.1 or later), allowing users to get up-to-the-minute information about all things Mexico, no matter where they are, or what Apple product they’re using. The application is available free of charge on the Apple iTunes Web site: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/visit-mexico/id380085352?mt=8#.
