First of January or thirs week of October????

Hopefully something or somebody here can bring me some clarity!!!

We have to travel on a budget, and I see to really nice deals, for resorts that we could not afford otherwise, at these times.

We are not from the frozen north, where 70' might feel warm..., and we would like some warmer weather. So, that might be a concern for Jan.

And, a complete deluge of rains might be a concern for October.

I do know that BOTH of these times are no guarantees.

(that can be said of any travel plans!)

And, I have tried to look up weather info and averages, etc...

Anyhow. Can anyone here compare.

What would your choice be, between these two travel dates?


Oooops, sorry for the typo.. Third week in Oct....

I don't think the system will let me edit the title.

It's a tossup btwn too cold or too rainy....look for rates and pick the best hotel at the best rate and go with it. Right now there seem to be VERY good deals for October. (hence why I booked for January 5 months ago and just 2 days ago booked for October too!)

It can be cold and rainy in January. I would go for October personally.
