    I am getting ready to leave in about a week and we have decided not to bring our laptop down with us, but I want to be able to have copies of my pictures for save keeping, just incase.

    Please recommend a good (free) picture hosting site that I can access from my resort to upload my pictures.

    Also, if anyone has used the for pay internet service at Dreams Tulum or other resort. What do they charge and how reliable is it?

    thanks all!

      I am using Kodakgallery.com*: Print, Store & Share Digital Photos—Order Kodak Prints, Photo Books, Cards & Gifts. There is a $25 fee for a year's service or there is a $2.95 fee monthly. But it allows full resolution uploads.

      If you do a search for photosharing, there are a few threads that discuss other options as well.

        I use snapfish.com. It's free and if you want to order prints, you have the option of sending them to Walgreens or Staples and picking them up in an hour.

          Oh, the thing about Kodak as opposed to Snapfish (if I understood and remember correctly) is that Kodak allows others to save your photos as high-res, so they can order prints too. I know there are lenghty discussions about this somewhere on here, but here is the thread that helped me decide - http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t12727

            We set up a dot photo account Digital Photography-Upload, Print, Share, and Organize Your Digital Photos with dotPhoto.com it's free. You can upload all of the pics on the trip or give your guests your login and pw and they can upload them once they get home. The thing I love about this site is that you can save all of the photos in high res from the site. So you can just e-mail the link to all of your family and they can download their own favorites (it's also free) and save them to their computer or order prints, etc.

              Of course, there's always Flickr, but I think smugmug.com might have a free account, as well. You can set privacy with them and order prints there, too. It's really a nice service.

                So I guess you will have to make sure you have a USB adapter or card reader that will plug into their PCs.

                I can say that Dreams Cancun was free wireless if you have your own laptop.
                There was a fee to use their PCs after the short free time they gave you.
                I think it might have been 15 minutes... don't quote me on that... and things may be different from Dreams to Dreams resort.

                You are getting married so soon Erica!

                  The last time I was in Mexico - I used an internet cafe to go on line to contact my office. Pick up emails, etc. Note that he key board was made for Spanish and not English. If I were you I would call the resort and check. I managed but it wasted time trying to figure out the key board. Good luck!
