Which hotel are you staying in? <jealous>
We've booked and I'm really excited! Spoke to a BA advisor for an hour about it, have trawled through previous years of October weather and I'm happy that the gamble will (fingers crossed) pay off. 5 star all inclusive with flights and transfers for four of us, ten days...£3100 I'll take that
We regularly used to go to Barbados in the October half term. Yes, it's the rainy season - but generally that means a quick, short, sharp shower and then the sun comes out again. I think we only ever had one day where it rained all day.
Why not go to a nice island? We have been in late October. It’s ok and you might get a quick downpour. I’d take the chance but not to anywhere you have suggested. Antigua and Barbados have more to offer.
Would we really be taking a financial gamble weather-wise? We'd be looking to go around 20-30th October. Currently thinking of Dom Rep for the shorter flight. Could do Aruba or cancun but really put off by the extra 2/3 hour flight time.
Also considered Cape Verde but read there's nothing to do and with poor healthcare touch wood should we need it so that's out.
Florida? Any other midhaul destinations with guaranteed sun and picture perfect beaches at that time of year?!
