Puerto Rico bachelorette party ideas
From day trips from San Juan to partying it up in the capital’s top neighborhoods, Puerto Rico offers endless options to make any bachelorette party special.
Party it up in San Juan’s most exciting neighborhoods
Virtually all of Puerto Rico’s biggest cities feature great nightlife scenes where you can blow off some (or a lot of) steam. But the vibrant capital of San Juan takes the cake.
Barrios – or neighborhoods – like Condado, Santurce and even Old San Juan feature plenty of famous bars and clubs (don’t take it from us, see our full Old San Juan nightlife guide). In particular, La Factoria and Fifty-Eight Club earn a lot of hype, but your Fora Advisor can steer you towards other top spots if you’re wanting a more tailored experience.
Visit Puerto Rico’s amazing beaches
… Because this is a beach vacation after all. Beaches are among the best places to visit in Puerto Rico for a reason. Sapphire-blue water presents a stunning contrast with white-sand shores, buffering green forests and bustling urban centers.
The country’s more popular beaches, like those found in Isla Verde, feature live music and festivals. But if you want a quieter Puerto Rico bachelorette party (or a great place to chill after staying out all night), Carolina Beach near Old San Juan is a local favorite.
Go on an adventure
There are so many adventurous things to do in Puerto Rico for brides-to-be and their squads. You can take a day trip from San Juan to El Yunque National Forest, enjoy a sunset cruise through the Bahia de San Juan or charter a flight to see the magical bioluminescent bays off the coast of Vieques.

Shop (and eat) ‘till you drop
If you want a break from the beaches, take your Puerto Rico bachelorette party into the city to explore San Juan’s shopping and dining scene.
Plaza las Americas is one of the largest malls in the Caribbean, while T-Mobile District features high-end shopping and exciting entertainment like Toroverde Park (which is also one of the best things to do in Puerto Rico with kids). Alternatively, Old San Juan’s shops feature handmade clothing and trinkets.
Throughout each neighborhood, you’ll find tons of great dining options that showcase Puerto Rico’s awesome food culture (check out this guide). And if you can’t get enough to eat, there are food tours that run throughout San Juan. Don’t forget: booking with a Fora Advisor means free upgrades and perks — which means you get to splurge elsewhere (i.e. on delicious food tours and restaurants).
What’s the best place to stay in Puerto Rico for a bachelorette party?
The capital, San Juan, is probably the best area to stay in Puerto Rico for bachelorette parties because it grants relatively quick access to a good portion of the island. However, Vieques and Dorado offer great options as well.
