Planning the Perfect Cabo San Lucas Bachelorette Party
There’s no denying that Cabo San Lucas, Mexico is one of the best places to host a bachelorette party. Cabo has beautiful beaches, relaxing resorts, fun dayclubs and a fantastic nightlife. The surreal setting at the tip of Baja California will make for the perfect backdrop to any bachelorette party weekend, but I want to make sure you guys have the BEST weekend possible. Here are my go-to best spots for where to eat, drink, and play in Cabo for the perfect bachelorette party weekend.
Where to Stay in Cabo for a Bachelorette Weekend
Villa Cielito – for a GORGEOUS private bachelorette party villa that fits your whole group, this is your spot. Villa Cielito is an absolutely stunning villa perfect for groups in Cabo, and features a private pool, and seven (!!) bedrooms.
Pueblo Bonito – This luxury all-inclusive hotel has, in my opinion, the best location in Cabo. It’s beautiful setting right on Medano Beach and beautiful white architecture that makes you wonder if you’re in Mexico or Greece, and makes for the perfect home base for a bachelorette party weekend. The pool is also a hot-bed of daytime activities like 2pm “Tequila Volleyball”. Welcome to Cabo.
Casa Dorada – Perfectly positioned next to the Mango Deck on the prime real estate of Medano Beach, Casa Dorada is the perfect place to spend a more upscale or low-key bachelorette party weekend in Cabo. It’s not as happening as some of the others, but you’re still right on the main strip of Cabo, with easy access to things like Lovers’ Arch and Mango Deck. Ask for a room with a view of Lands’ End!
Grand Solmar Lands End – This hotel is a great choice for groups and a great hotel for a bachelorette party in Cabo. It’s all-inclusive and beautiful, set on a gorgeous stretch of beach in Cabo that’s a little further away from the main strip, but still close enough you can get to downtown and all the party spots in a short cab ride.
Solmar Resort – If you’re looking for the best bang for your buck, Solmar (which is next to the Grand Solmar) is your spot. It’s all-inclusive and very affordable for a big group. The Mexican food is great, the pool is awesome, the drinks are solid, and the location is amazing! All in all this is a great spot for a bachelorette party.
Upscale, cute, great group restaurant in Cabo:
For a delicious Mexican restaurant downtown in a super-charming atmosphere, look no further than Los Tres Gallos – a romantic courtyard restaurant shaded by gorgeous willow trees. The courtyard is beautiful, the mexican food is delish, and the service, like the food and atmosphere, is fab. Best of all, Tres Gallos is pretty affordable, with pretty much everything on the menu priced at under $25.
Casual, fun, and great for a group restaurants in Cabo:
This bar and grill, located in the sand of Medano Beach, is one of the best spots to grab some margaritas and mexican food in the sunshine. Decked out in beach umbrellas, tiki torches and colorful tablecloths, this place is a Cabo institution. The food is good and the margs are even better.
Is this place is touristy? Si, senor. But is it also exactly what you want when you think of a fun group dinner in Mexico? Absolutely. Mi Casa is a beautiful hacienda-like candlelit patio restaurant with colorful Mexican decor everywhere you look. Enjoy the queso (the best I’ve ever had), and take in the awesome atmosphere, complete with balloon hats and lots of mariachi music, of course.
Upscale, a little out of town, but the most beautiful spot in Cabo:
It’s not super easy getting out to Flora Farms, a 17-acre farm tucked into the mountains of San Jose del Cabo, but the ride is worth it once you arrive to the GORGEOUS farm-to-table restaurant (Flora’s Field Kitchen) set on a farm and a luxury private community equipped with a spa, and yoga studio. Their menu changes daily and uses ingredients literally grown on the farm right next to your table, featuring everything from colorful salads and wood-fired pizzas to spit-roasted meats raised ethically on their 150-acre ranch. Bite into this foodie heaven as you sip on their vibrant cocktails (read: Carrot Margaritas, Lavender Maritnis, and Grilled Citrus Sangria… yum!).
Like any great bachelorette weekend, you guys are going to want something matching (for the epic insta posts, of course). I love these mini sarongs/beach cover-ups for a bachelorette party that Kenny Flowers makes! We wore these every day of the weekend of the last bachelorette I went to in Cabo and it was so much fun. The best part is they’re less than $30 each when you buy for a group ( just use the code BACHPARTY) and they come in a bunch of different fun prints. The bride can also get a different print if she wants, or get the same one as her friends but wear a white suit underneath hers! They also have white ones for brides! (Also if you’re a bride check out my post on The Best Bride-to-Be Outfits for Every Event Leading Up To Your Wedding, and What to Wear to Your Bachelorette Party as the Bride)
As far as swimsuit options, I love the idea of everyone wearing black suits and the bride wearing white.. these are some of my favorite swimsuits for a bachelorette party!

Or you could all get matching one-pieces! Use the code JETSETTERS for $35 off of each Watercolors Swim suit!
Where to Go Out on a Bachelorette Weekend in Cabo
El Squid Roe – this outrageously iconic Cabo night club and restaurant is a one-of-a-kind. With four stories of open air dance floor, countless throngs of partygoers and waiters armed with jello shots, Squid Roe is wild, loud, and full of energy. Dance the night away here!
Mango Deck – Chances are every single bachelor or bachelorette party going to Cabo will be at Mango Deck during the day. With a prime view of Land’s End, live music and entertainment, and non-stop margaritas, Mango Deck is the heart of Cabo’s day-life, and it’s party central. It’s located in the middle of Medano Beach, and is a great place to grab a drink and laugh at (or participate in) some ridiculously entertaining drunken contests any time of the year.
OMNIA Cabo – This beachfront day club has luxurious private cabanas and plunge pools, and two-story VIP bungalows right on the beach. The dance scene at OMNIA gets more and more hoppin’ as the day go on, especially when the celeb DJ’s take the stage. If you’re looking for a pool party in Cabo – this is your spot.
Is Cabo Safe to Travel to?
Yes. While Mexico has gotten a bit of a bad rap lately for its safety due to cartel-related violence, it’s important to note that most of the recent violence has occurred outside tourist areas, and resorts have tightened security to bolster the safety of guests. As I say with anywhere that the media tends to call “unsafe”, don’t let your fears stop you from seeing the world! But exercise caution and follow my tips for staying safe abroad!
Have fun at your bachelorette party weekend in Cabo! It’s definitely one of the best places for a destination bachelorette! Xx, Christina
