The Best Destinations for Your Bachelorette Getaway – You’re about to be married! You might have found that it’s not planning the wedding that causes you stress – it’s deciding where you and your gal pals are going to have the ultimate bachelorette party. Your best bet? Opt for what you’ll enjoy the most, and your ladies will have fun because you are – it’s your day, after all!
Are you the gal who just likes hours and hours spent on the beach, soaking up the sun? If so, Tulum, Mexico is the perfect place to have your bachelorette party. Tulum is only an hour from Cancun’s airport. It has a laidback vibe that free-spirits feel pulled to. There are literally zero traffic lights – actually, there’s not much electricity at all, especially along the beach. What you will find, however, is ecologically friendly lodges, chic boutiques, spas, yoga studios, and juice bars. For a place to stay, Coco Tulum’s thatch-roof cabanas are perfect. Really going all out? Opt for the Nomade Villa. When you’re ready to get in out of the sun, head to Chamicos. Their Lobster Ceviche is perfect, and enhanced by the lovely view of Soliman Bay. If you are up for some exploring, Tulum has you covered – think Mayan ruins, snorkeling, or hiking. All that, and then dinner is right around the corner! Be sure to make reservations in advance, and you’ll enjoy charred octopus or short ribs at the local favorite, Hartwood. With your heart and your belly full, head to Casa Jaguar for cocktails in the light of the moon.
If there aren’t too many places you haven’t seen, you jetsetter, take the girls for a serious wanderlust-quenching adventure to Cartagena, Colombia. This is one of the Caribbean’s buzziest cities – think luxurious beach getaway with South American culture at its finest. Check in at the Hotel Casa San Augustin. This mansion from the 1600s turned trendy digs is sure to satisfy your search for the lavish. Head into the Old Town to spend time exploring the plazas and cobblestoned avenues. Then, set your sights on some beach time – the hotel concierge can set up a boating day trip to Baru Beach or to Islas de Rosario.
