Group Trip: Best Locations for a Girls Holiday in Mexico

A girls holiday is the perfect time to reconnect and spend time with your favorite girl pals. The only thing is – how do you pick the best place to go? Is your crew into extreme sports, beach bums, yoga buffs or are they always first on the dance floor? Whatever kind of girlfriends you have, there’s a location that’s perfect for your girls holiday in Mexico!

Depending on the occasion or holiday you’re planning for, we’ve selected the three best places for a girls holiday in Mexico to choose from.


The white sandy beaches, historic ruins and crystalline waters of the Riviera Maya create the perfect setting for a girls holiday. This ridiculously instagrammable location has everything you could need and is sure to satisfy everyone in the group – no matter how different everyone’s idea of a great vacation is!

If you love relaxing on the beach, Tulum’s beaches stretch to the south of the Riviera Maya for miles. There’s always plenty of room to stretch out your beach towels and have a good gossip without anyone overhearing.

If kicking back on the beach doesn’t do it for you and your group wants more action, there are loads of activities you can involve yourself with. From snorkeling and diving to paddle boarding and kitesurfing, you and your girls can easily plan an action-packed holiday.

If you prefer a padded daybed and table service to throwing a sarong on the sand and scoffing coconuts from the beach vendors – no problem. Tulum’s fashionable beachside bars offer tasty meals, great tunes and comfortable sun loungers. Vacationers come here to see and be seen, so you’re never more than 10ft away from a carefully oiled body!

Bored of the beach? Culture lovers can make a beeline for the historic Ruinas Mayas, one of the only walled cities ever built by the Mayans. These ancient ruins sit on top of the rugged beachside cliffs overlooking the sea and is probably the best place in all of Mexico to catch the sunset.


Cancún is the go-to for girls who like to party or anyone looking for a fancy holiday experience. It’s more built up than Tulum with a greater variety of beach hotels to choose from. There’s also loads of popular clubs to dance the night away. Beaches are a lot busier and more commercial feeling than other places. But it’s still a really popular choice for group holidays! If you get tired of partying, you can always ferry over to the more laid back Isla Mujeres.

Isla Mujeres

A little island in the Caribbean sea, its name means “Island of Women.” Kind of ideal for a girls holiday in Mexico! The beaches are gorgeous and many of them have cute beach bar shacks offering tasty snacks, cocktails and juice. The town also has a variety of different restaurants serving cuisine from all over the world. You can get a ferry to the island from Cancún so the islands are really accessible if you want to split your time between two places.
