Cabo San Lucas is an excellent destination for a bachelorette party. It’s a top place to see in Mexico, full-stop, but it provides a special seaside charm for groups of ladies partying with their soon to-be-bride bestie. With beautiful beaches, warm weather year-round, affordable flights (especially if you travel during the off-season), and lots of things to do, your crew will have so much fun celebrating during a bachelorette weekend.
When planning a bachelorette party, if you’re a best friend or the maid of honor, make sure you always chat with the bride first before you start booking experiences. You’ll want to get their input before you start finding things to do for the whole group.
One top thing you must do when traveling to Cabo for a bachelorette party is a boat cruise. Getting out on the water and seeing the iconic spots around Cabo like the Arch, stopping for a swim, or enjoying food and drinks. It’s a great way to get all the joys of being at the beach, but with the added bonus of not having to brush the sand off your towel every five minutes.
The most popular boat choice for tourists in Cabo San Lucas is a catamaran charter. Catamarans are perfect for big groups and casual cruising around the coast of Cabo. A common activity to enjoy on a catamaran charter in Cabo is snorkeling - so be sure to inquire with the captain if snorkeling gear is included in the rental.
Another detail to ask the captain about when you’re booking is whether or not flotation toys like lily pads, inflatable swans or flamingos, or tubes come with the booking. These are great for swimming stops; you can kick back and float in the water in sheltered bays or coves around Cabo and cool off from the hot sun.
For bachelorette parties looking for that extra bit of luxury, a yacht charter is a perfect way to attain it. Yachts in Cabo start around $200/hour and will come with a local captain to take you wherever you’d like to cruise around the coast of Cabo. You can enjoy relaxing on the boat deck in sun chairs, lounging around while admiring the beautiful scenery of Los Cabos. A popular activity to enjoy on a private boat rental or yacht charter in Cabo is whale watching - depending on the time of year you visit. You might get the chance to see humpback whales, dolphins, and more, playing in the waves around Cabo San Lucas.
Many yacht rentals include food and drink in your charter for the ultimate luxury experience. What could be better than eating tacos on a yacht?

Parasailing rides are typically short, 30 minutes per group, but while your friends are up in the air flying over the waves, the rest of the group and enjoy watching from the boat deck.
Is your group full of adventurous, outdoorsy types? A bachelorette party doesn’t have to be all booze cruises and bar hopping - deep sea fishing charters could be the perfect choice for your crew!
