1. All-Inclusive Bachelor(ette) Party Packages
Planning anything as a group can be stressful.
Planning something overseas?
Well, things can get complicated real quick.
But it doesn’t have to be!
That’s where I come in…
Hands-down the most stress-free option is to choose an all-inclusive bachelor/bachelorette party package at 1 of the many resorts in the area offering this service.

2. How Much Will a Bachelor(ette) Party in Cancun cost?
Probably my favourite thing about this part of the world is that you can enjoy lavish luxury at affordable prices.
Don’t break the bank in Vegas and come home with nothing but a hangover.
Instead, get major bang for your buck in Cancun and at the very least come home with a tan.
Naturally, when planning anything of a slight expense you may have guests that can’t come because they can’t afford it.
So for clarity, let’s break it down.
Whether your group is paying for themselves, or you are rolling in it and have decided to pay for the whole thing….
Here’s how much you can expect to pay per person:
Flights: $250 – $450 per person (USA)
3 nights at an all-inclusive resort: $400-500 USD
Transportation to & from the airport (cost can be split) = $20 USD
Gratuities & extras (for tours/eating/drinking out): $150 – $500 USD
Estimated amount: $820 – $1470 USD
The more, the merrier in Cancun.
Naturally, the bigger your group is the smaller the expense often is for transport and private yacht charters.
You simply just split it.
If you have any questions, our team is here to help and provide you with an exact quote based on your group.
Plus, we will handle all group bookings and logistics for you.
3. Best Cancun Bachelor(ette) Party Venues
Cancun is a big place.
You may be wondering where to start…
Which Area Should You Stay In?
For me, Cancun has the best of all world’s.
There is something for everyone!
If your group is ready to let their hair down and enjoy the hustle & bustle of the city, Cancun’s Hotel Zone is where you need to be.
Want a more relaxed vibe?
Enjoy the pristine beaches and tropical vibes of Costa Mujeres.
It’s far enough away from the hotel zone to feel secluded but close enough (20 mins) if you do want to dip your toe into the social scene of city life.
What Clubs Should You Visit?
By clubs, I’m talking nightclubs.
If you like to party in the evening into the early hours of the night…
Our top picks include:
- La Vaquita
- Mandala Club
- Abolengo Cancun
- Coco Bongo – you can’t NOT visit Cancun’s most notorious nightclub, right?
- HRoof Cancun
- The City Cancun
- Congo Bar
- Senor Frogs
- Hunter Bar
Remember, you will have to take extra money for food & drink purchased outside of your all-inclusive resort.
Some places such as Coco Bongo do offer special types of tickets that include bottle service, open-bar etc.
Please check with the establishment before making your decision.
Plus, you will of course, need transport/taxis.
So, be sure to factor this into your group expenses and let everyone know.
Which Beach Bars are Worth a Visit?
Sometimes it’s just nice to sip cocktails by the beach, listen to great music, and spend some quality time with your friends, right?
Our top picks for Cancun include:
4. Who Should You Invite?
If you are planning the bachelor/bachelorette party for the bride or groom, it’s always best to get their input.
Ultimately you want them to feel comfortable and make sure they are having a great time.
The guest list normally comprises of:
- the bride, bridesmaids, close friends, and female family members
- or groom, groomsmen, best man, close friends, and male family members
Leaving the guest list up to the bride & groom for their party is definitely the best way to go.
It’s good to get your invites out as early as possible for the best chances of everyone being able to attend.
It gives people time to save, book time off, get childcare etc.
Another factor you should consider is whether you want a more intimate event or a larger group.
It totally comes down to personal preference, but there are pros & cons for each.
- can be easier to organize
- often work out pricier
- mean you can share these moments with those closest to you
- are great for spa days
- may be overwhelming getting organized (without the right help)
- often work out cheaper due to large group bookings at hotels qualifying you for perks & discounts
- may mean inviting people you don’t particularly like or want to spend a lot of time with
5. When is the Best Time of Year to Throw a Bachelor/Bachelorette Party in Cancun?
There are a few things to consider when throwing your party:
- When the wedding is
- The guest lists availability
- Peak season
Depending on when the wedding is, check with the bride or groom when they want the last fling before the ring to be.
December to April is the best time for a visit to Cancun when it comes to the weather.
This period is typically referred to as peak season.
During this time, flights and hotels are a little pricier.
Even though rainy season means that it might rain once or twice during your visit, it’s still hot as hell.
1 more tip…
Check everyone’s availability BEFORE YOU BOOK ANYTHING.
The last thing you need is to get everything sorted…
Only for the bride’s sister to come back with: “Sorry, I have a thing then.”
6. Booking The Flights
Cancun International is the closest airport for Cancun and resort destinations in Riviera Maya.
Our team can organize package flights from the US and Canada.
This is great for group bookings, especially if you want:
- the best rates
- to sit together
- and handle the logistics all together
If you prefer to find your own affordable flights, there’s a few sites you may find useful:
They’re pretty good for bargains and easy to use.
Wondering how to get from the airport to the hotel or resort?
I recommend a private shuttle as an easy and comfortable option.
The trip to the hotel zone in Cancun takes about 25-30 minutes.
If you need any help getting organized, call us us on our toll-free number 877-737-0177.

10. Tips for a Perfect Bachelorette Party in Cancun
Guest list, flights, accommodation, tours…
The final ingredient for the perfect bachelorette party is finesse.
This covers a multitude of finer details that make a world of difference.
Need a nudge in the right direction?
1. Plan nights out in advance
Thinking of socializing on the fly during your destination bachelorette party?
That might sound exciting, but so much could go wrong.
Disagreements over food and arguments over expense can really ruin the moment.
Planning important things like group meals means everyone knows what to expect.
You can always leave the impromptu choices for beach trips and girl time by the pool.
2. Set up a group chat
Every group trip needs a group chat.
You can set up a snapchat group.
Then you’re all good to message to your heart’s content.
Who’s for the spa?…
Check out the shoes I just bought…
Where you all at?…
You get the picture why group chat is a must.
3. Use Google Forms or other free surveying tools
Surveying your guests is a great way to get everyones 2 cents.
All you need is their email and you can fire away with your questions, like:
“Where would you rather go: Vegas or Cancun?”
- “What would be the best dates for you?”
- “What theme should we have?”
You get the picture.
Plus, they are super easy & quick to create.
4. Use apps like Splitwise or Venmo for splitting costs
It’s amazing how quickly people can fall out over who paid for what and who owes whom.
You don’t want arguments over money to ruin such an important event.
They make life easier and cut the quarrelling.
5. Plan fun games & activities
Even in a tropical paradise like Cancun, there’s a lot to be said for bachelorette party games and activities.
If you’re looking for some poolside laughs or beach fun, try some of my favorites:
The “Drink If…” Game
Ever played “Never Have I Ever?”
This game has a similar vibe.
There’s a list of “drink ifs”, everyone reads out an item at a time, and you drink if it applies to you.
You get the idea.
What’s in Your Phone
Think: scavenger hunt without the aching feet.
Chill by the pool with cocktails and find items off a list in the contents of your phone.
It’s that simple.
Points are awarded based on how common or rare the item is.
Add a bonus for x-rated searches for extra fun.
The winner is the one with the most points.
How Well Do You Know the Bride?
The premise of this game is super simple.
Whoever gets the most right answers to questions about the bride is the winner.
Why not make these games more interesting with a bottle of fizz for the victors?
