Mexico City is a touch away with new travel app

One of the world’s largest metropolitan spaces is now easier to maneuver with the launch of the StyleMap Mexico City application, now available to download for free at the iTunes store. The newly released app invites travelers to get a feel for Mexico City before boarding the plane and be fully prepared to live like a local upon arriving to the dynamic city.

Whether a veteran or novice traveler, the StyleMap Mexico City app is the quintessential guide to navigating the third largest city in the world. The user-friendly interface empowers travelers with insider guides to Mexico City’s neighborhoods, restaurants, hotels, art galleries, boutique shopping and museums. The app is compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad and requires iOS 3.1.3 or later.

“This is the most comprehensive and functional Mexico City app to launch and we are excited about the opportunities it will afford our visitors,” said Marcelo Ebrard, mayor of Mexico City. “The app allows travelers to utilize accessible, insider guides to our exceptional city, highlighting our vibrant culinary, fashion, architectural and entertainment scenes.”
Created for the universal traveler, the app includes suggestions such as:

Exploring Mexico City’s cultural and art-influenced history at Casa Lamm, a cultural center and public art gallery located in the colonial Roma neighborhood.

Shopping along The Presidente Masaryk Stip in Polanco, often compared to New York City’s Fifth Avenue or Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.

Mexico City is the country’s premier tourism destination, welcoming more than 12 million visitors a year.  The ancient capital presents a vibrant, contemporary culture combining pre-Hispanic, colonial and modern influences that span nearly seven centuries.  With 160 museums (more than any other city in the world), 31 distinct archeological and historic sites, as well as 100 art galleries, the city’s tourism industry is enhanced with the support of the Mexico City Tourism Promotion Fund (Fondo Mixto de Promocion Turistica del Distrito Federal).  This government entity works with industry partners to attract both leisure and business travelers by implementing the use of dedicated public- and private-sector funds.
