International Thanksgiving Travel Facts 2012 vs. 2011:
Even with a 24% increase in airfare, customers continue to flock to Cancun this holiday season, allowing the destination to hold on to its number one spot for international Thanksgiving travel. With a decrease in airfare, London makes a big jump to second place on this year's list while Aruba takes fourth. Almost half of this year's list includes all new destinations, including Punta Cana, Managua, Lima and Puerto Vallarta, proving how Latin America is becoming a top travel destination this year. With flights to Lima on sale for less than $350, airfare for an international vacation will cost less than airfare to any of the top 10 domestic destinations this year.
