Free wifi

Hi everyone! We will be in Maui in August and will be taking our electronic devices!! However we will be roaming and thst can get extremely expensive. It does not pay either to purchase a travel package. So I was wondering where one can get free wifi apart from your hotel or condo? If you are not staying at a hotel can you connect to their wifi?

Thanks!

Many hotels have free wi-fi in the lobby area plus you always have Starbucks for wi-fi.

there are apps that reveal where to find free wifi, but the catch is that you need to be on wifi to use it

Thanks Jimmie for that great list. Yeah, that is the kicker with wifi finder apps. Gotta have it to find it. I read that the timeshare units we are staying at does not have wifi, only dial up! 😳 who uses that these days??!! Seems so archaic!

Are you sure it's not wired highspeed rather than dial up? Where I'm staying they don't have wireless, but have wired internet. I bring a travel router with me to plug in and create my own wireless. It was about $30
