You’d be hard-pressed to find a better last hurrah for your soon-to-be-married buddy than a Mexico bachelor party. With everything from water sports to tequila tastings to golf excursions and, of course, an infamous spring break party scene, your trip is guaranteed to be anything but boring.
Grab your passports and head south of the border for a Mexico bachelor party complete with sun, sand, and plenty of cervezas to go around.
What to Do
Ample beach time is a must for any Mexico vacation, including a trip with your closest bros. Grab some Coronas and enjoy the ocean views, or take your party on the water with endless activities to round out your itinerary. Check out snorkeling, speedboating, flyboarding, parasailing, wakeboarding, or even shark diving for the daredevils in your group.
Another great option, consider chartering a private boat to party on the water at your own speed. Companies like Cabo Sails or Cancun Sailing offer a variety of options to fit your group’s size and needs.
When you’re ready for some action away from the ocean, book a ziplining experience, explore the jungle on an ATV ride, or hit up one of the many award-winning golf courses in the area. For those on a Cancun bachelor party, the Cancun Country Club’s El Tinto course offers greens covering 7,435 yards and 18 holes at a fairly reasonable rate. For a luxury golfing experience in Cabo San Lucas, Quivira Golf Club will absolutely deliver. This cliffside course gives players sweeping ocean views, but be warned: a tee time here is going to set you back quite a bit. Then again, how often do you get the chance to play at a course voted one of the top 100 golf courses in the world?
Make sure to get a taste of the local culture by sampling your way through Mexican-made tequilas and beers. In Cancun, The Ritz Carlton offers an upscale tequila tasting held daily that can be booked through their concierge services. For another Cancun option, head to La Destileria for Mexican eats and an extensive tequila tasting menu to explore. Over in Cabo, make sure to hit up the Mezcal Bar at Drift San José. Not only will you find a sleek and modern atmosphere to spend an evening, but you’ll taste some of the best small-batch mezcals this area has to offer.
What to Eat
While your hotel may have its share of restaurants on-site, don’t be afraid to venture out to experience the most authentic flavors of Mexico at its top-rated restaurants. Mextreme is a Cancun favorite serving the best tacos, burritos, steaks, beans, guac, and all your favorite traditional dishes. For seafood cravings, El Fish Fritanga is the place to be. This no-frills establishment is all about quality eats in a casual atmosphere. You might even recognize the restaurant from its feature on the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.
Good eats are abundant during a Cabo San Lucas bachelor party, and The Office on the Beach is consistently ranked as one of the very best. Your group can grab an amazing meal here any time of day, and you’ll be literally dining on the sand with the water in close view. For authentic tacos on the cheap, try Taco Guss to eat your weight in tasty eats served with an array of salsas and toppings to for the complete experience.
Where to Stay
You’ll have no shortage of hotels to select from for a Cancun bachelor party, but stay at the RIU Cancun and you’ll find the ultimate convenience at this all-inclusive 24 hours resort. In addition to their all-day activities for guests to enjoy, you’ll have access to three freshwater swimming pools, a variety of on-site restaurants, and Cancun’s famous white sand beaches.
For the bachelor crew who takes their golfing agenda serious, consider the Hilton Los Cabos Beach & Golf Resort your perfect home away from home. You’ll never get bored with four on-site restaurants, two deluxe pools (both featuring swim-up bars), and the resort’s “stay and play” packages with five partner golf courses all in close proximity.
