Cabo San Lucas is an amazing location for a bachelorette. Sun, sea, and sky — plus Lauren Conrad picked it for her bach, so you know it’s got something going for it. Here are some of our favorite tips and tricks for a destination bachelorette in Cabo based on the ones we’ve planned:
Rent a villa
Sure, there are lots of hotels (and some fantastic daytime pool parties), but you can get a drop-dead gorgeous villa with amazing views all to yourself for a reasonable price. Just try to pick something close to downtown so you’re not constantly dealing with transportation logistics to get into Cabo. We’ve enjoyed working with CaboVillas.com.
Get a chef and a ride
Cabo Chef Services was one of our favorites, and they can pre-stock your house with snacks and drinks before you get there. Make sure to book your transportation as much ahead of time as possible (especially to the airport). All Ways Transportation has always been very responsive and helpful!
Enjoy the outdoors
Go out on banana boats or jet skiing, then have a boat take you snorkeling. Kayaking and ATV tours are other fun options to get everyone out and about. And then, obviously, lazing beach or poolside is necessary.
Food & Drinks
For eating and nightlife, try Los Tres Gallos. For really excellent (and well-priced) Mexican food and the Sunset De Mona Lisa (aim for a sunset dinner or a lunch so you can enjoy the spectacular view). Baja Cantina, a beach-side restaurant and grill with excellent food, and Chamuyo, an Argentinian steakhouse with a cool outdoor courtyard, are also great options. For going out, Cabo Wabo Cantina, Slim’s Giggling Marling, El Squid Roe and the four-hour happy hour at Nowhere Bar are all good options.
Mana is the life force Tahitians believe connects all things. Feel the mana for yourself on a visit to the islands of Tahiti, and sample some of these activities as you connect with the breathtaking nature of the South Pacific. Fly Air France from the United States to Tahiti in the most convenient and comfortable way and let your holiday start on board.
Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
Friends and family members of travelers are always looking for the right gift. It’s hard to find something that will surprise a traveler and also be something they use often. Many are trying to look past the typical gifts travelers get, such as notebooks and pens, and looking more toward destination-specific or more unique items. Gift giving can be difficult for some that don’t know what a traveler is looking for or needs, but these three gifts are a great starting point.
