Bucket List Bachelorette: Explore Machu Picchu + Taste Your Way Through Cusco

iHola, es hora de la fiesta, señoras! In other words, it’s party time, babes. When planning your bachelorette party, you take all things into consideration, such as: location, activities, amenities, shopping, food, and of course, drinks. Looking for an exciting (as well as exotic) location to get away with the girls for your bachelorette bash? Look no further, we have found a spot.

The destination, Machu Picchu. It is the ideal place for some serious fun, everlasting memories, and food—yum!

Machu Picchu, Peru is a breathtaking re-stored Incan citadel situated in the Andes Mountains. For many, the setting is a longtime bucket list check-point. This particular location makes it a perfect Andes backdrop for your upcoming bachelorette party, not-to-mention, there will be plenty of #wanderlust-worthy content for Instagram.   

Where to Stay?

The JW Marriott El Convento Cusco is a stunning Five Star property right in the heart of Cusco. Elaborate courtyards, beautiful indoor/outdoor lobbies as well as a grand outdoor patio are a few of the amenities that make this Peruvian adventure one for you and your gals to embark on.

The hotel’s oxygen-regulated rooms are there to assist with the change in altitude. After all, you are lodging in the mountains. Speaking of mountains, to prevent altitude sickness, El Convento Cusco has you covered. Upon arrival, coca tea is served to guests as this helps alleviate altitude sickness, not-to-mention, it’s a warm way of saying, welcome to Peru!

Aside from swanky sleeping areas, yummy cocoa-tea, and a few photo-opts, there is a friendly face in the courtyard waiting to be greeted. Who? Panchita, the resident alpaca. We hear he loves selfies as well as apples. Then again, don’t we all?

What to Do?

A trip to the property’s spa and oxygen-enriched cabins for a special Incan healing treatment sounds like a worthy way to kick off any bride-to-be party. Aside from the typical body wraps, facial scrubs, and facials, the El Convento Cusco offers a special Swiss shower and private temperate indoor pool experience. Okay, this sounds amazing!

For the gals seeking adventure, there is daily transportation to the train station which leads to the Sacred Valley. In addition to travel, cuisine is a huge part of the experience. A bachelorette mixology class can be arranged during your stay as well as a chef-guide trip to the farmer stands. Naturally, this is followed by cooking classes. Es hora de comer!
