I've been there twice over Thanksgiving and each time it was "less busy". I suspect it will be less busy this year, too.

We have been over Thanksgiving week several times. Not overly crowded at all, just right for us. The weather is also a plus this time of year, humidity is less and hurricane season is over. If your trying to avoid a busy time don't go on or near Easter week.

We love Thanksgiving week - going to Sun Palace 11-23 to 12-3! We've been 3 times before at this time and the weather has been perfect. As "droptine" said, low humidity and hurricance season is over. The temperature is awesome and less vacationers. Plus the price is much lower than going over Christmas when it's crazy high and no matter what, we want to avoid the "Spring Break" crowd.

Happy travels everyone.

Thanksgiving is my favorite time of year. The weather is typically good. The crowds are light. The prices are low. We have been going that time of year for many years.

Have been going yearly for the past seven years and find it to be "just right". Perfect weather, not too crowded and still lower rates. You will find it quite enjoyable!

While there are some visitors from the United States who will take a long holiday weekend here called a punte(a bridge) it is not a very busy time of the year. Most 4 or 5 star hotels should offer a typical Thanksgiving Day meal. You can also get a very moderately priced Thanksgiving Dinner at Sanborns located in Plaza las America. Hope you will enjoy your visit.
