It is a perennial problem for the Cancún party-goer - so many clubs, so little time. Where should I start drinking? Which is the best club for me? Two recent iPhone apps. have made finding the answers a whole lot easier, with the right information quite literally at your fingertips.
Launched this month, 'Cool Cancun & Isla Mujeres' is written by local girl, Zora O'Neill, and sold by Sutro Media. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, requiring iOS 3.0+, and includes many cool features. It can be downloaded for just 99c.
Because Zora O'Neill has lived in Cancún, she is able to include many tips and hard-to-find places for a truly good night out. She has written travel books for the area, including 'The Rough Guide to the Yucatan'. She knows the locations of 24 hour Taco kiosks; and the best eateries for anything from gourmet dinners to bargain snacks. She has danced in these clubs; drank at that bar; and had great fun on those tours. Her reviews are sometimes opinionated, often witty, but generally spot on. This is the app. for people who want to enjoy Cancún with local knowledge, instead of simply following the madding crowd.
As well as tips and activities, 'Cool Cancun & Isla Mujeres' also includes a GPS system and maps. This allows it to direct you to where you wish to go.
'Cancun NOW' is the brainchild of Solly Levi. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, requiring iOS 3.0+, and includes many cool features. It can be downloaded for anywhere between 99c and $2.99.
The touch of a button will reveal what's on in clubland that night; filtered recommendations, based on your needs; the best bars, restaurants, tours and fun to be had.

The app. also includes special offers and vouchers, to ease your way straight into the party. From free drinks to money off a scuba diving trip, this app. delivers the goods. If it all goes belly-up, then there's even a button to summon the emergency services!
