    Can someone please tell me how I can add a map to my website?

    Here's the problem, I have recommended three different hotels to my guests (The Hilton, the Marbella Suites de la Playa and The Pueblo Boinito Rose.) Someone (who apparently doesn't know how to search things on the internet) has asked me for a map of the area showing the three hotels - I guess so she can compare the distance before deciding where to stay. I can't find one map with all three hotels (since 2 are in the Corridor and one is in Cabo San Lucas.) I would love to be able to create one map that shows both areas, but that's not the biggest deal. Mostly I'm just looking to figure out how to add maps to the website. I guess it would be good to add so all my guests can get a visual of the area. Thanks!

      I haven't done this myself, but just took a quick look...
      On the Accomodations page if you click on edit, and scroll down, you are given the option to upload a photo, pdf, or word doc. If you can create a picture or diagram of your map and then paste it into word then upload it, that should work. You could also try creating a Google map of the locations and then using something like SnagIt to get a screenshot, paste that into word and then upload.
      Hope that helps!

            Jen,

            I did the same thing Bridget was recommending. I used a map from the Los Cabos website, and converted it to PDF. Then I uploaded, and it says "Download PDF" or something.

            Take a look at mine if you want, the map is on the Accomodations page, Los Cabos page and the FAQ.

              Oh Jill, your website is sooo cute. I LOVE it!!!! You did such a good job with it.

              Ok, so I managed to download the same map as you. Only, I tried to figure out how to circle my three hotels (like you did) but I can't figure it out. You must wonder how I manage to get dressed in the morning if I can't even figure out these simple things. LOL!!!

                Jen, I had to do that in my Adobe application...if you want, send it to me and I'll do one for you. Just PM me and tell me your email (although I think I still have it?) and tell me exactly what you want...and it can be a different color than red, so tell me that too!

                  OOOOhhhhhh, thank you so much!!! I have NO IDEA how to use Adobe. (Boy, I can't believe I'm annoucing that to the world.) I'll PM you now.
