There really are plenty of places to eat in both areas PR and PDI - the weather should be around 25c cooler at night - you could get a shower in October - if you do it normally dries up fast and the sun is back out.

For Puerto Rico places to eat maybe try .-

Grill Garoe

Le Chef

Wellington

Little Italy

Piccaso

El Brasero

Bistro Frere

Flicks

El Toro Negro

Grill Garoe

to name just a few...

For other places to eat & Playa Del Ingles areas look at ( click on next when you have scrolled down):-

We went to Puerto Rico in October 5 years ago and it was scorching hot. We were told that it was actually hotter than it had been in August - dont think that is usual though. We were just unlucky because we had avoided August because our daughter didnt like it too hot. Dont think anyone can predict the weather - have have just come back from Tenerife and we had a whole week mainly cloud.

There are some very good restaurants in the Europa Centre, especially the Chinese one on the top floor if it is still there,

Only visited Playa del Ingles briefly - was too crowded for our liking, but sure teenagers will love it.

We have been to Gran Canaria six times and loved Maspalomas the best but am sure wherever you go on the island and whatever the weather, you will have a good time.

October is a good month to come here. Both Puerto Rico and PLaya del Ingles are ideal spots for you and the girls. Both have plenty to offer for eating out and entertainment which has been adequately covered by 35110 (see their post).

October is a good time to go to the Canaries. We had a fantastic week in March, temp up to 100deg one day!!

We've been going to Puerto Rico every Christmas and New Year for the past 10years and its always beach and sunbathing weather even if it does get a bit chilly at night.

Hello, thankyou so much for your advice. We usually go to Cyprus in October but you have been most helpful, so Gran Canaria it is. Thanks again.

Hi, could anybody please suggest a gentle shelving beach to stay near please? This is our first visit to Gran Canaria, and are unsure which resort to pick as we have children to consider also. I believe Player del Ingles is the place to be, but are the beaches what we seek please? A nice recommended ALL INCLUSIVE Hotel 3-4 star(nice pool & food etc) would also be greatly appreciated, if anyone could be so kind.

Thankyou very much.
