Puerto Rico is a great option as the go-to place for a bachelor party, especially for Americans since they don’t need to get any visas - or even bring their passports - to get in or out of it, being a territory of the United States. What makes it stand out from the rest of the other destinations is that it offers more than your usual bars and clubs. Located in the Caribbean, it features a variety of activities in and out of the water. The fact that Puerto Rico is significantly cheaper compared to other sites such as Las Vegas doesn’t hurt either. Check out this list for the top bachelor party ideas in Puerto Rico.
