Kilson-Thomas has planned everything from bachelorette trips to honeymoons and is sharing her recommendations for the best destinations to make your bachelorette party one to remember.
Mexico is a popular vacation destination but according to Kilson-Thomas, it’s also an ideal spot for bachelorette parties and there are three great options.
In Mexico, you have Cancún, Playa del Carmen, and Riviera Maya. Cancún has great nightlife for bachelorettes. What you’d find is some resorts in the Cancún area have nightclubs at the resort.
Royalton Riviera, Cancún, or Planet Hollywood are a couple that have a disco or a nightclub on-site. It gives you the opportunity to have fun and party without having to leave the resort.
According to Kilson-Thomas, good resorts, good hotels, and good food are among the many reasons to visit the Caribbean island. There’s also a lot to keep your party occupied.
Bachelorettes like to go to Dunn’s River Falls, Doctor’s Cave or Rick’s Café. If you go to Mo Bay, Negril, or Ocho Rios, different excursion companies will have a hotel pickup and drop off.
If you’re in Montego Bay, which is about an hour and a half from Negril, but you want to go to Rick’s Café as an excursion, you have the opportunity to get picked up and dropped off from your hotel.
Brides-to-be love the Bahamas because of the beaches. Those beautiful pure white sand beaches and crystal blue waters also make it a great spot for a girls’ trip before your nuptials.
Señor Frog’s is where the cruise ships dock when people are visiting the Bahamas, and so it’s right there. There are lots of people, the DJ is great— it’s a fantastic time.
If you would like to keep your celebrations close to home, take the party to Miami in South Florida or on the southeastern coast to Fort Lauderdale.
St.Lucia has been named “World’s Leading Honeymoon Destination” 12 times. The island is increasingly gaining more attention as a pre-wedding party spot due in part to its uniqueness.
Another great domestic location where you don’t have to worry about passports. It’s also perfect for the bridal party looking to decompress before the big day.
If you’ve seen The Hangover, you know that Las Vegas and prewedding parties are practically synonymous. Try your luck in the casinos or catch one of the many residencies.
