Bachelorette Party Activities in Cancun
With everyone so much busier than they used to be, having help coming up with Cancun bachelorette party activities is crucial. And not just from your bridesmaids. They’re probably very busy as well!
We suggest looking for Cancun bachelorette party packages, organized activities, or tours so that the whole group can relax during the trip while someone else takes care of the details. Here are some stress-free bachelorette activities to help celebrate before your big day.
Have a Spa Day
Nothing says a bachelorette party like a spa day! Leave your cares at home and enjoy a pampering spa treatment while on vacation. Cancun has a large selection of excellent spas, including some world-class resort spas, as well as top-notch day spas.
Everyone loves a spa day. With so many wonderful venues to choose from with a variety of packages, you are bound to find one that’s perfect for your group. Consider merging a Spa Day with the Airbnb you have booked by ordering massages to directly to your rental! Pampering and relaxation are a great combo before your big day.
If you are looking for party ideas, head to the heart of Cancun nightlife. It totally transforms around 9-10 pm when all the clubs and bars start to open. Some of the clubs may charge a cover fee, so choose accordingly. If you wear some matching bachelorette party outfits, expect to have the red carpet rolled out for you! The clubs love to give special treatment to Cancun bachelorette parties, so feel free to flaunt and show off the bride-to-be!
Rent a Private Boat
There is no better place to appreciate the beauty of the region than sitting on the deck of a boat. Feel the fresh sea breeze in your face and the wind in your hair while you enjoy the natural beauty of the area. There are multiple Cancun boat tour operators and private charters to go on snorkeling trips, booze cruises, sailing tours, and more.
They come with a skipper and often with a drink package. By adding some fun bachelorette party games while you are sitting and sipping on champagne altogether, you are guaranteed to have an amazing party on the water. Consider renting a private boat or package that cruises the water at sunset. Not only is this fun and starts the night off really special, but it will make for great photos.
Go on a Food & Drink Tour
Food and drink tours are some of the easiest Cancun bachelorette party ideas to do. With so many different companies out there, you are bound to find one that suits every need of your guest and in the location you need.
With a food and drink tour, your transport is included so no one needs to worry about driving. It is safe and stress-free. Some food tours include visiting wineries and distilleries! Everyone can have a taste of the local gastronomy and you are practically guaranteed to have fun!
This is a great idea for anyone wanting to experience their first tandem skydive. Imagine a 20-minute flight with the beautiful natural backdrop and then jumping out at 12,500 ft with the entire bachelorette party!
Bachelorette Party Ideas in Cancun
This Cancun bachelorette party will be one of the few and final times that the whole gang is together! As we get older and get married, start families, and move to other cities, our lives get busier and families take up more of our time, so there is less time and likelihood of coordinating a big group trip with friends. So soak it all in! Below are all our favorite Cancun bachelorette party ideas.
Book a Bachelorette Party Photoshoot
The bride and her best girls enjoying their last hurrah, frozen in time. Don’t forget a moment of this amazing time with some of your favorite people in the world! Plan a bachelorette party photoshoot with a professional photographer and then present the bride with the photos as a gift she’ll cherish forever. If you’ve been looking for the perfect bridal shower gift idea, this is one that can’t go wrong.
Hiring a professional photographer allows those special moments to be captured without having someone missing in the photos or having to awkwardly ask a stranger to take a photo for you. A professional photographer will help make the photos look more candid and spontaneous so that the end result will be more natural and be a true record of how wonderful the occasion was.
Choose between 4 different Cancun bachelorette photoshoot packages:
- 30 minutes – Includes 15 digital photos
- 1 hour – Includes 30 digital photos
- 90 minutes – Includes 45 digital photos
- 2 hours – Includes 60 digital photos
Booking a photoshoot in Cancun for a bachelorette party is the best way to make sure everyone is in the shot, and you will have a bunch of frames to pick from to make sure you all look gorgeous.
As everyone gets carried away with having fun, you will naturally forget about capturing the fun moments along the way! Even today when everyone has a camera on hand, you want to make sure guests are having fun and not getting stuck staring at their phones. Better yet, make your bachelorette party a phone-free event! Not only will your guests interact more, but you can also make sure any embarrassing moments are NOT caught on camera.
We suggest taking photos when the group feels that they look good. You know that feeling – you all just got ready to go out to dinner, hit the pool, or enjoy a bottomless mimosa brunch. Capture everyone when hair and makeup are fresh and before any debauchery begins. We recommend around 10 am or 7 pm, but a photographer will give suggestions.
Book an Amazing Airbnb
Hotels separate everyone into individual rooms, and your party areas are shared with the whole resort. We say go for a super cute Airbnb with enough space for all to have a good time.
There are so many amazing places to rent out there and so many are perfect for a girls’ weekend away for your bachelorette party. Rent a place with a jacuzzi, pool, bedrooms for all – you name it! Just because you have rented an Airbnb doesn’t mean you will need to cater for yourselves. Consider hiring catering or a personal chef for the weekend. Why not even make an activity out of it and book a cooking class you can do at the Airbnb!
If you can find a house with a great patio, a view, or a pool even better! Think about how you’ll decorate the place and make sure there’s space or a spot for cute photos of the bride and all her friends.
Get Matching Outfits
We’ve all seen them – matching swimsuits or tees that make the bride stand out. Whether you like it or not, brides love it! It’s a way to make her feel even more special! You might not wear it ever again, so take our advice and do it for the photo at least. Our favorite matching outfits for bachelorette parties:
- One-Piece Swimsuits
- The bride wears white – everyone else in black
- Bomber jackets
- Flower Crowns
- Temporary Tattoos
- Crop Tops
Custom Bachelorette Party Swag & Goodies
Make your Cancun bachelorette party more special by ordering custom swag and goodies for your guests as a thank you. Check out ETSY or other online businesses that can customize a bachelorette goodie bag or box. Consider items that go with your theme for the party. Nautical items for a boat trip. Personalized face masks for a weekend away. You can even add some fun (and maybe a little naughty) items in there to give it a real traditional bachelorette theme.
Capture the moment the bride pops champagne and everyone has a glass, or get some balloons that spell out something fun. Here are some other great bachelorette party favors:
- Champagne – Always a classic
- Fun Photo Booth Props
- Colored Smoke Bombs
