Bachelorette Party Check List


Costa Rica Bachelorette Party Checklist | Destination Vacations

While planning an unforgettable bachelorette party can be relatively easy when the party is taking place in your own hometown, it can be much more difficult to plan one in another country. But with the help of Bachelor Party Kings and the Kings of Jaco, planning the epic bachelorette party is a piece of cake! Let our party planners help you plan an unforgettable experience for the bride-to-be and her closest friends in a tropical paradise—Jaco Beach, Costa Rica!

It’s been a long-standing tradition that the maid of honor is tasked with planning the bachelorette party, but nowadays anyone in the bridal party can organize the bachelorette party—even the bride! But doesn’t she already have enough to do? Take the reins on this special celebration and surprise her with a party that will be as memorable as her big day!

The bachelorette party is an event you want everyone in the bridal party and any close friends of the bride and groom to fondly remember, always. That’s what Kings of Jaco is here for. We can plan a once-in-a-lifetime experience for your group, customized to meet your every expectation.

Bachelorette Party Checklist

  • Get feedback from the bride   The bride’s bachelorette party is held in her honor—she is the star of the show and you are gathering to celebrate her. Make sure you are planning an event she will embrace and treasure forever by including her in the decision making process.
  • Pick a location – Make sure the location you are choosing for your destination bachelorette party is convenient for everyone—especially the bride! Her celebration should be fun, not something that causes her stress before her big day. Remember, she has a lot going on right now, so make sure she’s open to the idea of traveling before you set your plans in stone.
  • Make sure you have a budget in mind – and do your best to stay within it. If everyone is chipping in to pay for the party, or paying their own way, consider everyone’s spending limits and respect people’s budgets as you are making your plans.
  • Pick a date – You’ve decided on the perfect location and have considered your budget. Now it’s time to mark your calendars and save the date! Let’s get this party planning started! 
  • Invite your guests – Invite everyone close to the bride and groom—close friends and family as well as the bridal party. Whether they can attend or not, it will mean a lot that you thought of them and invited them to this special occasion. You don’t have to invite everyone on the wedding guest list, of course, but make sure to carefully consider anyone who may feel left out if they weren’t included.
  • Choose your accommodations – Your accommodations will depend on the size of your party. If you will be celebrating with a smaller group, a condo on the beach may be perfect. If your group is rather large, consider a luxury villa—a private party oasis stocked with everything you’ll need for an epic celebration!
  • Plan activities and tours – When you’re in a place as beautiful as Costa Rica, you’ll want to get out and see the sights and experience the culture. Kings of Jaco can hook you up with unforgettable tours and activities, from deep-sea fishing charters and party boats to ATVing, snorkeling, and kayaking.
  • Meals – Whether you enjoy cooking or prefer to let someone else take care of it, the choice is yours. But after a day of sightseeing and adventure or a wild night out on the town, even the most capable chefs may welcome a respite. The private chefs at Kings of Jaco can pamper you and your guests with delicious cuisine, and the best part is that you won’t have to clean the kitchen or wash dishes!
  • Social Media – Some memories are meant to be shared among close friends, not all over social media. No matter how great those photos are, use discretion before you post them. Photographs of a sensitive nature can cause irreversible damage to someone’s reputation and, at the very least, embarrassment.
  • Bring Cash – Many of the activities, services, and tours in Jaco and around Costa Rica accept only cash for purchases. Plan ahead and bring enough cash along with you, as ATMs have withdrawal limits and credit cards charge high fees for cash advances.

We’re Going To Costa Rica

Costa Rica Bachelorette Party Checklist | Destination Vacations

Costa Rica is a tropical country with two seasons. Locals would call it Dry Season (summer) and Rainy Season While many locales have four distinct seasons, Costa Rica is a tropical place with basically two: the dry season (summer) and the rainy season (winter). November through May are dryer, while June through October are typically wetter. But no matter what time of year you visit, Jaco is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle and escape to paradise for a while.

So picking a month depending on the weather isn’t the main point on your Costa Rica bachelorette party checklist. You want to pick a month though that works with everyone’s schedule. For the ideal destination bachelorette party, Kings of Jaco recommends a four- to five-night stay. Depending on how many activities you have planned, you may want to stay for a whole week! With everything to see in Costa Rica, you will want plenty of time to pack it all in. Jaco is known for its incredible nightlife and party scene, and we know that bachelorette parties usually involve partaking in adult beverages. If anyone in your party goes a little overboard with the alcohol, we have a helpful tip: Chiliguaro helps soothe hangovers! Our helpful staff at Kings of Jaco can hook you up. So picking a month depending on the weather isn’t the main point on your Costa Rica bachelorette party checklist.
