    OK, more than 3 people have mentioned the "new no-camera policy" at TTR. We were just there for Trip No. 20 in October, and nobody said any such thing at any point, during any spiel we received from any staff member.

    I had my camera with me, just like always, and got fun pics around the pool (willing and previously given noticed subjects all) and at Bash (same dealio) and no security ever came up and said anything, not even "Boo!" (It was Halloween). Yes, ladies were doing their normal TTR thing with the boobies and thongs, and good for them. Bless them, actually.

    So, what is the actual "deal?" It was Not like I was taking the pictures, or Stacia was, or our friends were of us when we handed the camera round, surreptitiously.

    Well, we were in the sexy pool and a lady was taking pictures. She was told to stop, she persisted, security came over and looked at the pictures and made her delete them. Then we were upstairs in the sky bar, my wife was taking pictures of the sea and same deal - a guard came up and checked that there were no compromising pictures. Is it a "no camera" policy? Don't think so. But I do believe they take guests' privacy seriously and its a good thing.

    We were there the same time as you, and Meri saw a guy take a picture of someone in his group, but the picture was facing the pool. He was told he couldn't do that. I took about a dozen pictures of Meri, and in a few there were people in the background. I didn't notice them at the time I guess. Took a few at Bash too, and no problems.

    I think running into security is just a timing thing.

    Why do people need to take pics there anyways, if u want a vacay pic go on the beach and face the water or go walk on the next resort. When we went in October my girlfriend and others were dancing on the bar topless and with no panties on and there were people in the back of the sports bar taking pics and the girls didn’t like it and one made it on a fb page. If there are no cameras people can feel more free that it won’t end up on social media and will be more open to the fun. If it’s porn your looking for there is way better on the internet guaranteed than some topless girls dancing around. If it’s vacation memories there’s lots of places on site and off site that you can take pics without people having to worry that they are topless in the background.

    enforcing the no camera policy sounds like a GREAT idea to me

    While we were there this past November, there was a woman sitting at the sexy pool next to us trying to take pictures of my wife on her phone. After a few words from me she decided to put her camera away. I am all for a no camera policy.

    First they take away the free porn and then no inappropriate pictures? What's next, a mandatory 12 step program for porn addiction? ;)

    ...or, perhaps it's a plan to FORCE us to buy the porn!!!

    As cheesy as it is, they should have a photo area at bash and maybe even the sexy pool like they have on red carpets. Where if you want to take a photo in your costume/outfit or minimal swimwear you can and then back to whatever you were doing.

    With today technology, no camera would mean no phones. Really hard to enforce...

    If you've been going to TTR for a few years, and an unintended pic of you hasn't popped up on someones FB page or Google, then you're either lucky or a ghost. :)

    Ive ran across at least 3 pics on the internet of me and my wife in the background at TTR. No biggie really, and they were all tame pics, but I can understand peoples apprehension about pics at TTR. Not everyone (especially some employers) would appreciate the TTR "climate" like we all do, especially with the BS reviews on Tripadvisor. :)

    I've always taken lots of pics--of us and our group. I hope it's obvious to anyone in the vicinity that I'm aiming at people who are intentionally posing, not creeping on people who just happen to be in the background. And I'm very careful what gets posted (in fact, I make sure to take a TON of SFW pics to post so it doesn't look sketchy. I mean, it's totally weird now if someone goes on vacation and doesn't post pics. That's what I think would make people really suspicious!)

    I'd be sad if I can't take pictures of my friends at the sexy pool and at night (how the hell else am I supposed to remember what was going on during that 7-day shot binge I call "vacation?!")

    Yes, I'm sure I'm naked (*cough* hypothetically *cough* even in a naked headstand...) in a lot strangers' pictures, but, really, what are the odds someone I wouldn't want to would ever see those pics? And if they did, I'd just say, "Huh, weird, I guess I see a little resemblance. She's having a lot more fun than I ever have, though!" ;-)

    No one is saying u can’t take pics of your friends, but does it have to be at bash or the sexy pool?? And there are places in both of those areas that I guess would work for pics that isn’t facing the others in the background. Yes it might not be big deal for some people that they end up on the internet topless or involved in some other shenanigans, but it is a big deal to others. Some people don’t want thier friends, co workers, parents, kids knowing what they are up to. If we are promoting losing your inhibitions that “no body know u, no body gives a shit” it can’t be “no body know u here, but someone on the internet might know u and give a shit”. I think it’s up to the TTR vets, security to do a better job policing it and asking people to just keep thier phones and cameras in thier rooms.

    I/we are all for the no camera policy, cameras create inhabitions. If you need to snap a pic of your sexy outfit it can always be done in your room.

    I was in Bash last month and using my Sound hound to try and find the artist of a song and security came over and told me to put it away...Seen another couple at Bash ask someone to take a picture for them in costume and once again security came over and stopped it.

    We've actually had friends and family say..."We never see any pics of your vacation." hahaha
    I agree in this day and age, not taking vaca pics is highly unusual. We usually just blow it off by saying..."we've been so may times, and taken so many pics already...."

    Okay, just playing Devil's Advocate because you're totally right you could just take pics in your room and leave the camera there--but would you ever go on vacation anywhere else and come back with only pics of yourself in your hotel room? (I can see it now: We went to New York City! Here we are in our hotel!???)

    Maybe I've set myself up by posting a lot on social media, but my friends would be suspicious if I "went dark" for vacation.

    For fun one year, though, I borrowed my mother-in-law's frumpy 1980s bathing suit, grabbed the Bible (in Espanol!) out of our room, and staged photos of myself being quite pious on vacation (nobody bought that, either! ;))

    We always walk down to the resort next door and take a few pics, but we also noticed this October that the quiet pool in the morning is pretty much empty and u can take pics there looks like every other resort in Mexico.
