So you’ve decided to rent a beach house somewhere exotic for the guys, but aren’t sure where to look first? We’ve got you covered. Here are the top 5 international beaches for an awesome bachelor party experience.
Ipanema Beach, Rio De Janeiro, Brazil
Think of Ipanema Beach as a classier, slightly less crowded Copacabana. It has been called Rio’s best beach for its beautiful landscape and incredible views. Don’t be fooled though, there’s still plenty of crazy Rio nightlife to keep your bachelor party crew happy and hammered. This should jump right to the top of your list if your party is happening during the four days before Mardis Gras (middle of February- just make sure the groom doesn’t miss Valentine’s Day!) because Rio Carnival is an experience of a lifetime in and of itself. This location is best for smaller bachelor parties due to the size of properties.
Playa Del Carmen, Mexico
While Cancun seems to be the go-to spot when you think party Mexico, Playa Del Carmen gives you a similar experience without all those pesky spring breakers. You can have your private villa without sacrificing nightlife. Playacrawl, a VIP all-you-can-drink tour of PDC’s best nightlife (ranging from big names to hidden gems) is highly recommended. PDC is also a world-renowned dive spot. You really can have it all!
Orient Bay, St. Martin
Here’s the lowdown on St. Martin vs. St. Maarten: St. Martin is the French side of the island with the amazing beaches, while St. Maarten is the Dutch side with everything else (strip-clubs, bars, brothels, etc.). Do everyone a favor and rent a house on the French side and cab it over at night (super easy, short drive). That way you get the best of both worlds- party all night and recover during the day.
Jaco Beach, Costa Rice
There’s a reason they call this place Bachelor Party Bay. There are ready-to-book luxury packages that include everything from accommodations and transportation to fishing tours and party boat rentals all the way to strippers (yep, that’s right). If you’re not afraid of the sleaze-factor (you shouldn’t be, it’s a bachelor party!), it’s a no brainer. Two words: Pura Vida!
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
This list would be incomplete without Cabo. It’s the classic bachelor party beach destination, and for good reason. Of course, there are white sand beaches, nightclubs, and usual water sports, but there are some activities you wouldn’t expect. For example, it’s the only place you can FlyBoard. I mean how frikin’ awesome is that?!
