I was thinking about the Canaries for October half term for me and DS (he'll be 10 then) but spotted Mexico, direct flights AI for not much more than my original budget, with good flight times. It looks like we'd get more bang for our buck in terms of hotel facilities, luxury etc and now I really fancy it!
Do I need to worry about it being hurricane season? I'd also love to hear recommendations for where to stay, I'm a bit overwhelmed by the choice! I'm a single parent, I'd like a great kids club for DS, good food, a spa for me and a real chance to relax in the sun for both of us. On a lovely beach with some easy snorkelling and nearby shopping for me (to feed my Sephora addiction) would be a bonus.
Thanks again! Sensatori is very tempting! I liked the look of Hard Rock RM, but no availability for our dates. DS is great on planes and the flight times are good - half term is longer than a week, so we might manage 10 days.
We went to Tulum on the Yucutan in October half term and had two days of perfect sunshine and five of constant rain - not stormy but just miserable. Don’t know whether we just got unlucky but I’m not sure I would risk it at that time of year again.
