Thanksgiving is a perfect excuse for a vacation, whether just a quick beach getaway over the long weekend or an extended break that takes advantage of the extra days leave.
Mexico is a great choice for Americans and Canadians looking for a great deal to celebrate Thanksgiving. The relatively short flights, many of which are direct from various major cities in the US and Canada, make Mexico a convenient Thanksgiving getaway.
The other advantage of visiting Mexico during the Thanksgiving break is economic. Once in Mexico, the cost of dining and hotels are much cheaper than in North America and many other destinations further afield. You get great value for money and wonderful friendly service.
Some of the top destinations in Mexico for a beach break over Thanksgiving are Cancun on the Caribbean Yucatan Peninsula, Puerto Vallarta on the Pacific Coast and Cabo San Lucas in Baja California. All of these destinations cater specifically for American and Canadian visitors during their respective Thanksgiving weekends – US being in November and Canada in October. You will find some excellent deals and a number of restaurants (including hotel restaurants) that have special Thanksgiving menus so that you won’t miss out on your turkey dinner!
