How can I back up my digital photos while travelling without a laptop?

I'm going on a three-week vacation to Mexico and not planning to take along my laptop. I only have a couple of Compact Flash cards for my camera (older Canon Powershot A95), and I'm leery about getting mugged and losing all of my photos.
Is there a gadget that would download my photos from the Compact Flash cards to a small, portable drive, without having the laptop as a go-between? I'm thinking of something similar to a keychain flash drive that I could leave in a hotel safe while I'm out on day trips, so that in the event of robbery, I have back-ups of my pictures.
I'm leaving fairly soon, so something that can be bought at FutureShop/Staples/Best Buy/etc would be preferable.
