A perfect place to relax and make memories, Los Cabos is the ideal destination to plan the ultimate girl’s vacation. Whether it be a quick weekend bachelorette send off or a one-week stay retreat with your lifelong besties, here are some tips for planning the perfect girls getaway in Los Cabos.
Where To Stay
With a pristine coastline lined with beautiful hotels and accommodations, it can be an overwhelming decision when it comes to choosing which property to stay in. It all comes down to what atmosphere and experience you and your girls are looking to have.
If you’re looking to let your hair down and have a little fun, you will want to choose a hotel that is close to Cabo San Lucas where there is continuous activity day and night. Consider a hotel such as Breathless Cabo San Lucas Resort & Spa or ME Cabo by Melia which are right in town and are known for their pool parties and overall playful atmosphere. For batchelorette parties, Breathless Cabo San Lucas (Unlimited-Luxury® and adult only) offers the ‘Last Fling Before the Ring‘ package.
If you’re looking for a stylish, low-key spot to hang out and bond, consider choosing a boutique property such as Mar del Cabo or The Cape, a Thompson Hotel.
For ultimate pampering and sophistication, The Waldof Astoria at Pedregal is an ideal R&R hotel. For a full list of accommodations in the destination, visit https://visitloscabos.travel/directory/hotels
What To Do
The Arch – A trip to Los Cabos is not complete without witnessing The Arch landmark. The best place to snap that iconic photo with your girls standing in front of this unique rock formation is by renting a boat and cruising out to the Sea of Cortes. There are dozens of boat concepts to choose from, from a snorkeling catamaran tour, a sunset wine and jazz cruise, a shared party-style pirate ship, a floating lounge concept, or a private luxury yacht.
Shopping – Hit the town and head to San Jose del Cabo’s center where you will find some of the chicest and most colorful handicrafts and folk art. Wandering down any of the streets that border the main plaza, there are dozens of boutique shops with some of Mexico’s finest creations brought in from every corner of the country. Shima*Shima is a favorite for one-of-a-kind beach accessories and unique, splashy treasures.
Spa – No girls’ trip is complete without a full gossip session whilst being pampered from head to toe. The Spa at Pedregal is a favorite for all-girl getaways and Bachelorette parties. With group packages already designed to cater to a ladies retreat, the ultimate experience starts with a private yoga class overlooking the ocean, followed by 60-minute massages, and culminating in open-ended pool time with lunch service and mimosas.
Beach Clubs and Nightlife
When it comes to hitting the town, there are suitable options for all types of celebrations.
For a lively party during the day, you’ll want to head to Omnia Day Club. Overlooking the Sea of Cortes, this beach club offers cabana service, themed parties, and a robust calendar of events throughout the week to rival some of Vegas’ coolest pool parties.
For a more relaxed setting, Sur Beach House, part of Bahia Beach House, is a picture-perfect, Baja-chic hangout. Enjoy lunch and bottle service on sun-warmed sand, while chilling to a perfectly curated lounge playlist. If your group brings a thrill-seeking attitude, there are fun water activities to partake in due to its ideal location on Medano beach.
Come night fall, Cabo San Lucas has some of the best energy in Mexico. Centered along one main strip, you will find all different types of live music, night clubs, local hang outs, wine bars, and just an array of entertainment options fit for whatever your groove is. One of the most lively parties suited for all (legal) ages is the show at Coco Bongo. Mixing a Las Vegas-style spectacle with a Mexican fiesta, opt for the VIP table package that will give you a first row seat to performances and fully-attentive bottle service.
For a more distinguished experience outside of the main nightlife area, head to La Botica Speakeasy. Hidden behind a secret door in Las Ventanas al Paraiso, a Rosewood Resort, this piano bar features creative cocktail concepts and captivating live entertainment.
