You’ve likely heard of a honeymoon, the trip spouses take together after marital ceremonies. But have you heard of a “buddymoon?” Just like it sounds, a buddymoon vacation is a trip with your friends—no expensive wedding necessary! Buddymoons give you the chance to bond with your friends over new experiences and exciting adventures together, similar to the way spouses will bond on their first vacation as a married couple.
More and more groups of friends are going on these deluxe vacations with each other to celebrate friendship and comradery. Sound fun? Maybe you and your BFFs should look into booking a fun-filled trip together!
When considering buddymoon vacation destinations, you’re not necessarily looking for the same types of places people would go on a honeymoon. Instead of romantic dinners and couples activities, you’re going to want places that offer fun, adventure, and plenty of crowd-pleasing hot sports. Here are some of the top buddymoon vacation destination for you and your friends to consider!
While Puerto Vallarta offers plenty of romantic elements for honeymoon couples, it offers just as much fun and excitement for a buddymoon vacation. Spend days sunbathing on the sandy shores, and party all night with the city’s vibrant and enticing nightlife. Close groups of friends will have plenty to discover with hikes through the lush jungles, challenging bike trails, unique beaches to explore, and art galleries to peruse.
When vacationing with friends in Puerto Vallarta, we recommend staying at Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta. You can stay in a two-bedroom suite that comfortably sleeps six with the convenience of a kitchenette, spacious living room, and two full bathrooms. Set right on the shores of Bahia del Banderas, you and your friends will enjoy prime beach access with additional resort amenities like a swimming pool, beachside jacuzzi, a sports bar, and even a full-service spa for a day of pampering. And be sure to utilize the concierge services to help plan your Puerto Vallarta adventures and excursions.
Not just a great place for a bachelorette party, Napa Valley is a beautiful and fun destination for a getaway with your best friends. Friend groups that live for food, wine, and gorgeous scenery to enjoy while indulging will love this California destination. And while you’ll feel like you’re so far away from it all, Napa is just an hour from the excitement of San Francisco. While in Napa Valley, be sure to tour the local wineries (and taste along the way), take in the views from above on a hot-air balloon ride, or pack in your rental car and take a scenic drive to the stunning Mui Woods.
When you’ve wined and dined to your heart’s content, retreat back to your accommodations at Vino Bello Resort. A two-bedroom condo is large enough for six and had some great features like a full kitchen, private balcony, jetted tub, and flatscreen TVs. This Tuscan-inspired property will put you steps from local wineries, hiking, and more. On-site you’ll find two outdoor swimming pools, a lobby cafe, on-site dining, and a sauna.
No matter what season you are planning your buddymoon vacation in, you can’t go wrong with an Aspen vacation. Whether you and your friends want to experience some stellar skiing, or participate in the number of outdoor activities that can be enjoyed during the warmer months, Aspen is the place to go. This Colorado destination is home to more than just outdoor fun—the area is also known for its art galleries, unique dining scene, and vibrant nightlife. But nothing beats spending a day on fresh Aspen powder, then retreat to the ski lodge to indulge in cocktails by the fire with your best pals. And don’t miss the area’s top nightclub, Bootsy Bellows, for bottle service and an unforgettable night out.
Don’t forget to book your suite at Hyatt Grand Aspen, a resort that will allow you to enjoy all of Aspen’s beautiful seasons. During the warmer months, swim in the outdoor pool, relax by the firepit, or take out some bike rentals to explore the local terrain. Hyatt Grand Aspen also offers a ski valet and ski shop, while the concierge can direct you to Aspen’s favorite ski spots. Stay in a two- or three-bedroom residence, sleeping six to eight people, well-equipped with a full kitchen, jetted tubs, a living room with a fireplace, and three full bathrooms.
