Planning a wedding can be a bit stressful, but your bachelorette party is a chance to cut loose and relax with your closest friends. Costa Rica is the perfect choice for a bachelorette getaway! The country has so much to offer its visitors, from adventure to partying, ecotourism, wellness, and beach life. Regardless of the vibe you’re looking for, you’ll find a fit in this tropical haven.

Here are some tips and must-dos for your Costa Rica bachelorette party and itinerary:

1. Stay in a Villa, Not a Hotel

Instead of booking multiple hotel rooms, book a house big enough to accommodate everyone. A private luxury villa like Casa Teresa is perfect for such an occasion. It’s located in Santa Teresa, an exclusive coastal enclave on the west coast of Costa Rica. It offers both privacy and proximity to some of the most exciting tourist destinations in the country. 

Our original Casa Teresa villa is a beautiful piece of beachfront architecture. It’s equipped with all the amenities you need for a VIP stay, including a pool, kitchen, and over 4,700 square feet of living space. You will have access to your own concierge, with additional options to book private security, private chef services, and wellness professionals.

Casa Teresa Grande is the latest addition to our stunning property and boasts 17,000 square feet of space and can sleep up to 16 people in elegant, Moroccan-influenced rooms to comfortably accommodate all of your guests. You’ll also enjoy a state-of-the-art gym, a private infinity pool, game room, outdoor dining and barbecue area, and much more. Your party will revel in the serene luxury of these one-of-a-kind surroundings and enjoy the property’s unparalleled views and easy beach access.

You have the option of booking one villa or both villas for your Costa Rica Bachelorette party. Booking the entire property will allow your bachelorette group to enjoy your own private oasis, with our staff available to you to help with your every need. The two properties are separated by a gate that can be closed to maintain privacy but easily opened to facilitate easy access between the two villas should you choose, allowing members of your travel party to come and go as they like. 

Booking both properties makes it easy and simple to enjoy the many amenities and beauties of Casa Teresa’s grounds for your Costa Rica bachelorette itinerary: host a barbecue night with evening cocktails facilitated by our private chefs at Casa Teresa Grande for a welcome night celebration, then follow up with a restorative private yoga session poolside the next morning. Treat everyone to poolside massages, followed by cocktails on your patio. Staying at Casa Teresa gives you the freedom to design your own customized VIP luxury bachelorette retreat. 

Casa Teresa is frequented by A-list celebrities! A stay here guarantees you an unforgettable experience during your Costa Rica bachelorette party. 

2. Breathe in the Wild

You can’t come to Costa Rica and not explore the incredible outdoors. It’s one of the most biodiverse spots on earth. The landscape is carpeted by acres of lush tropical forest and dotted with hot springs and waterfalls. The country is also a world leader in ecotourism, with a host of sustainable environmental policies. 

It’s a great place to visit as a group and marvel at the wildlife or simply disconnect and immerse yourself in nature. Looking to add some truly exotic experiences to your Costa Rica bachelorette itinerary? Try a horseback ride through the untamed jungle, or visit the beautiful Montezuma waterfalls. If you’re celebrating your Costa Rica bachelorette party at Casa Teresa, you can ask the concierge to help book a nature exploration or hike for you

3. Feel the Adrenaline

If you’re an adventurous group, there are tons of exciting outdoor activities that you can try as a part of your Costa Rica bachelorette party. The land of pura vida has it all. You can sign up for an exhilarating zipline tour over the forest canopy. This will let you get up close and personal with the wildlife, giving you an experience unlike any other. 

If you’re into watersports, you can try everything from snorkeling to scuba diving, parasailing, and surfing. Costa Rica has some of the best surfing in the world and the waters off of Casa Teresa are perfect for this. Ask your concierge to set up a private surfing session for you and your friends.  

4. Party Like There’s No Tomorrow

It’s hardly a Costa Rica bachelorette without a party. The country has a fantastic nightlife and clubbing scene. Its cities are dotted with open-air beach bars where you can jive to some reggaeton, EDM, and Caribbean calypso. If you’re in the mood for something more private, Casa Teresa offers you a chance to organize some lively poolside parties within the premises, with an incredible backdrop of the ocean and swaying palm trees. 

The dining in Costa Rica is excellent as well. The country has a rich and diverse food culture that is a delight to experience. Take some time to explore the local joints during your Costa Rica bachelorette party. Indulge in a delicious seafood platter or the local specialty — casado (which fittingly enough, means “married person”). At Casa Teresa, you can ask your concierge about arranging  dining reservations for your Costa Rica Bachelorette itinerary, or you can inquire about booking an evening with our own private chef. Wake up to some gallo pinto and huevos revueltos and end it with a sopa marisco in true Costa Rican-style.

5. Unwind On the Beach

Lazy days are important, too. Balance out the parties in your Costa Rica bachelorette getaway with some leisurely beach time. Soak up the sun, sand, and surf and watch the hours roll by. Enjoy a refreshing mojito or guaro while you work up a tan for the wedding.

One of the best things about Casa Teresa is that it’s a mere 75 yards from the water. All you need is a few beach lounge chairs, and some sunscreen, and you’re all set. When you book one or both of our villas for your getaway your entire party will enjoy easy beach access and our concierge will help you incorporate your beach relaxation with the rest of your planned activities so you can make the most of every minute. 

6. Indulge in Massage Therapy

Another excellent way to power down after your Costa Rica bachelorette party is to indulge in some ‘you’ time. Casa Teresa makes it easy to schedule your very own personal massage therapist. Request a deep tissue massage, a reiki massage, a deeply healing lymphatic drainage treatment, or an inspiring sound healing experience.

You can also practice group yoga and guided meditation right by the beach with your yoga instructor who’ll visit you at the villa. Destress and bring out a natural glow in your skin with a wholesome stay at our villa.

Practical Tips for Your Costa Rica Bachelorette Party

At Casa Teresa we’ll make your experience as seamless as possible, but there are a few things to keep in mind as you plan and pack for your Costa Rica bachelorette itinerary:

  • Travel — Costa Rica is paperless, but they will ask you for a valid destination address at Customs and Immigration. If you’re staying at Casa Teresa, we can arrange a private charter plane to fly you from San Jose to Tambor near the villa.
  • Cash — you don’t need to exchange a lot of currency beforehand. American dollars work in Costa Rica! They’ll give you back Costa Rican colones in change.  
  • Phone — An international plan is recommended. AT&T and Verizon both have some decent plans you can use.
  • Packing — Costa Rica is super casual! You’ll find that heels and wedges are entirely optional even when you’re out partying.
