The data comes from the Index of the 10 main Thanksgiving destinations published by Allianz Global Assistance
To compile its lists of the main national and international destinations, Allianz analyzed 2.4 million Thanksgiving trips sold through its partners. Thanksgiving travel is defined as the one-way trip between Saturday, November 23 and Thanksgiving on Thursday, November 28.
Cancun has been the main destination since Allianz began indexing destinations in 2015. This year, it is the second place, eclipsed only by Punta Cana.
"The return of Americans to the Dominican Republic comes at a critical time for the country's tourism industry, a vital sector for the local economy," Allianz said in a statement. “The island nation, which suffered a decrease in the number of tourists earlier this year due to growing suspicion of a series of tourist deaths, was recently encouraged by the toxicology report of the Federal Bureau of Investigation that the deaths did not they were related and were the result of natural causes. ”
In addition to Punta Cana and Cancun in places No. 1 and 2, the rest of the main international destinations this year are, in order, London; Paris; San Juan; San José del Cabo, Mexico; Nassau, Bahamas; Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; Montego Bay, Jamaica and Mexico City.
