How About Celebrating Thanksgiving in Mexico?

Delicious fresh produce is abundant and easy to find.

Without a doubt, Thanksgiving is one of the most important public holidays in the United States and Canada, perhaps because its message of gratitude unites people of all faiths and philosophical views. Regardless of what you might think about the way the Americas were colonized, any festival that encourages a nation to come together with family and friends to reflect on all that you have to be grateful for is a tradition worth honouring. Even countries such as Germany and Japan have a similar type of celebration with Germany’s Erntedankfest  [Thanksgiving Harvest Festival] and Japan’s kinrōkanshahi [Thanksgiving Labor Day].

While Mexico does not observe its own Thanksgiving public holiday, there are plenty of reasons to choose Mexico to celebrate your Thanksgiving.


For our north-of-the-border cousins, Mexico is a prime location with many direct, short flights from major cities. If you wish to spend a luxury Thanksgiving abroad, Mexico is close enough that you won’t alienate your nearest and dearest by long and expensive flights.

Autumn is a great time to visit Mexico, particularly its coastal regions. The high summer temperatures have begun to drop, yet the ocean is still warm and the scenery is a lush green after the summer rains. As temperatures plummet back home, a sunny Thanksgiving will give you the vitamin D and that happy-factor you need to get you through the winter ahead.

Luxurious Hospitality

If there is one thing you can expect any time of year from a Mexican vacation with TripWix, luxurious hospitality would be top of the list. The warmth and sincerity of the Mexican people combined with an active service-focused workforce allow for a fully pampered experience. From waitstaff to onsite chefs, to chauffeur services, to massage therapists, to shoe shining – you won’t have to lift a finger, except to sip your margarita!
