Hi all! A few weeks ago I attended the ultimate bachelorette party in Cabo San Lucas for one of my closest friends. I’ve traveled to different parts of Mexico over the years and this was my third time in Cabo. If you’re looking for a tropical destination with beautiful beaches, sunsets, a nightlife and not too far from home, Cabo is the place to visit! You can read more about Cabo San Lucas in my travel diary from a previous trip here.The girls and I traveled over July 4th and stayed for six days. I was a little skeptical about traveling to Cabo in the middle of summer, but the weather was absolutely perfect. The temps were in the high 80s with clear blue skies and sunshine every day and it actually seemed to be a pretty popular time to visit. There were quite a few birthday and bachelor/bachelorette parties happening while we were there.
Where we stayed:
We rented a beautiful property through Cabo Villas, Villa Desierto, located in Punta Ballena which is adjacent to the Esperanza resort in a gated community and about a 15 min. cab ride from downtown Cabo San Lucas. Honestly we couldn’t have picked a more perfect property for our six day getaway to accommodate twelve ladies. The Matron of Honor and Koumbara did all the legwork including finding the villa and planning out the week for us making it just the right mix of relaxation and fun. Thanks again, ladies!!!This was my first time staying in a villa on vacation and I would absolutely do it again when traveling with close friends. We split the cost between all of the girls and it came out to about $525/girl for the house which included three housekeepers who came out every morning, a house manager that was on call if we ever needed anything as well as our own private transfer to/from the airport.
Our Week in Review
After somewhat of a long travel day (there were no direct flights into Cabo the week we went), we were greeted with margaritas, chips, homemade salsas and guacamole by our house manager upon arrival. We stopped at Costco on the way to the villa to stock up on some groceries since we’d be spending the majority of our time at the house so if you do opt to rent a house over staying at a resort there is a Costco or a Walmart to choose from.
We spent the rest of the afternoon lounging poolside before some of us went out for the evening.
We had lunch reservations at SUR Beach House, a super cute beach front property located on Medano Beach. Medano Beach is actually the only swimmable beach in Cabo and it overlooks Land’s End. There are several hotels on the beach to the left of SUR Beach House and more restaurants to the right including The Office and Mango Deck Restaurant & Bar, both of which are Cabo’s popular attractions. After lunch we decided to walk a few doors down where we rented a day bed on the beach and spent the day drinking cocktails, swimming in the ocean, getting our hair braided (typical girly girls) and being total beach bums.
We spent the entire day at the house and had lunch catered through A Matter of Taste that the MOH booked through Cabovillas.com followed by a private chef’s dinner in the evening. During dinner we thought it would be a nice gesture to go around the table and say how we met the person sitting next to us and one favorite thing about that person which turned out to be an emotional evening (in a good way). We concluded the night by gifting the bachelorette sexy lingerie and making her do a little runway show for us. Let’s just say the groom is one lucky man!!
We went back to Sur Beach House for lunch (it was that good) followed by a pool party at ME Cabo hotel. The ME hosts Blue Merlin Ibiza pool parties weekly specifically on Saturdays with guest DJ’s, but you can reserve a cabana Friday and Sunday as well. At night we hit up downtown Cabo where there are a ton of nightclubs and bars. We basically spent our evenings dancing the night away at Mandala which is one of Cabo’s most popular night clubs. I would highly recommend getting a table on the weekends because of how crowded it gets. One other fun option to kickoff the night is Nowhere Bar which is kitty corner from Mandala and right before the Marina.
On our last full day in Cabo we spent the day at Omnia Day Club which is a brand new day club at Vidanta hotel in Los Cabos. It’s more expensive than ME and a little further from downtown Cabo, but Omnia is definitely worth checking out. We had our own private Cabana which included a private pool, butler, bottle service, food, etc. for about $3,500. It was one of the many highlights of our trip and I’m so lucky to have been a part of it!
