Depending on what you’re looking for, there is a resort to match your bachelor party vibe. Here are some options to consider.

Breathless Montego Bay

Breathless Montego Bay is an adults-only all-inclusive resort that is great for bachelor parties due to its lively atmosphere. Daily and nightly entertainment includes parties and themed events, plus you’re close to the nightlife scene in Montego Bay.

With a range of onsite amenities for when you’re recovering from last night’s fun, there’s a lot to enjoy until you’re ready to go again. These include a private beach with watersports, a pool, a hot tub, a fitness center, tennis courts, and a restaurant and bar. This resort is very friendly and accommodating for all.

Exciting activities include watersports like snorkeling and land activities like beach volleyball. Enjoy 16 restaurants and bars (including a swim-up bar), two pools, two hot tubs, a fitness center, and a spa. With so much to do, you may never leave the resort! 

Beaches Negril

You may not think this family-friendly all-inclusive resort is a great choice for a bachelor party, but it’s perfect for anyone who’s a kid at heart due to the amazing onsite waterpark. It also features a section of the stunning Seven Mile Beach with soft white sand and calm turquoise water. Beaches Negril is a fun all-inclusive resort for everyone.

Plan the Activities

Jamaica has everything including fantastic beaches and watersports, zipline and ATV tours, golfing, river rafting, paintball, waterfalls, great bars and nightclubs, and more. In fact, it might be hard to narrow down your list of bachelor weekend activities. 

Do you want it to be more relaxed with plenty of time on the beach? Or maybe you’re looking for something a little more exciting with plenty of water sports and activities. Once you know the vibe, it’s time to plan a few activities. Check out some of the most popular activities and destinations for a Jamaica bachelor party.

Bus Bar Crawl


A popular Jamaica bachelor party activity is a bus bar crawl. This is similar to many other bar crawls but with a slight twist: you’ll move between the bars on a bus. Not only will you be able to see and experience different bars throughout the Negril area, but you won’t have to worry about getting yourself and your group from bar to bar. 

Enjoy different drinks and atmospheres. You’ll get to sample iconic Jamaican drinks as well as experience live entertainment and an amazing sunset, and explore a few underground caves. 

Scuba Diving

Montego Bay

Another great Jamaican activity is scuba diving. Montego Bay not only offers excellent areas to dive, but it also has a scuba school for anyone who isn’t certified.

Get your entire group involved, and enroll in the scuba diving program before getting out into open waters. You’ll get to see some incredible marine life while making a lifelong memory. Or, just head out on a snorkeling excursion–no training needed, and you’ll still see some amazing sights.

ATV Tour


If you’re looking for a little more adventure, then you might consider adding an ATV tour to your bachelor party agenda. In Negril, you can experience Jamaica while zipping by in an ATV or on horseback. Both options will get your adrenaline going while seeing the lush and beautiful landscape.

Mountain Bike Tour


Around Jamaica’s capital, you can find tons of different tours. One is a bicycle tour through the Blue Mountains. But be prepared, this tour takes nearly 10 hours to complete! 

You’ll be picked up by car and taken to the top of the Blue Mountains. Then you and your bachelor party group will spend hours cycling down while viewing the expansive beauty of Jamaica. Plus, you’ll get to cool off in a few waterfalls on your way down.


Negril or Montego Bay

There’s quite an active nightlife scene in Jamaica. If you and your group are looking for a fun night of drinks and dancing, then you’ll want to plan on hitting a few clubs around Negril or Montego Bay. The good news is there are plenty to choose from.

If you’re looking for a unique bachelor party, then Jamaica is the destination for you. This island nation is full of fun activities and adventures for any type of bachelor party.
