Pure magic is woven through the colorful towns, sands, jungles and ruins of Tulum… and those of us who are fortunate enough to be drawn to this place – the dreamers, bohemian spirits, wanderers, artists, lovers and seekers – never stop looking once it’s magic is found. We long for the sun rays, powder soft white sand, hippie beach town vibes, peaceful energy that flows throughout, and the healing to nourish the mind, body, soul and emotions. I am thrilled to share this energy with you, and it is my honor to create an unforgettably beautiful vacation experience for an intimate group of women who feel called to this ancient and culturally rich land to experience what I call “THE FIVE ELEMENTS” of a truly idyllic vacation!
Sisterhood + Local Culture + Regional Cuisine + Relaxation + Fun
As with the five elements in nature, this retreat has been thoughtfully orchestrated with each element creating the other and working together to support a beautifully balanced vacation experience. I am drawn to Tulum for it’s rich indigenous Mayan culture, indulgent cuisine, vibrant art scene, and natural environment… but what makes it really stand out to me are its incredible jungles and beaches. Tulum is blessed with powdery white sands, azure waters and looming palm trees…a beach ***’s paradise! This charming destination on the Yucatan Peninsula is like no other – a special vortex of natural energy and wonder. In this space, I have created a retreat where you can deeply nourish yourself. You will get lost in relaxation, allured in the seductive eco-chic vibe of the shops and restaurants, and play in the magical atmosphere of the jungles, lagoons, cenotes and pyramids.
what will we do?
We will visit some of Mexico’s most energetically charged cities and ruins perched atop cliffs overlooking the beautiful Carribean sea, surrounded by lagoons a magical jungle, and surprising structures. With opportunities to climb pyramids, participate in traditional Mayan ceremonies, swim in refreshing cenotes and learn all about the Mayan lifestyle and traditions with locals, we will discover the pure magic in every element. Aside from all that I have planned with this mainly all-inclusive journey, you will have some time on your own to explore. Choose from variety of holistic health offerings, try a cacao ceremony or yoga class, rent some scuba gear and head to the sand, find a hammock, sip a cold coconut or cocktail, enjoy an afternoon at the spa, indulge your free-spirit in the hippie vibes… after all, this is YOUR time to feed your mind, body and soul, as you wish.
The Five Elements Retreat will include:
~ Amazing villa accommodations in the heart of Tulum’s jungle
Our stay will be spent at a private dream villa in the heart of Tulum’s jungle, less than 15 minutes from the best beaches of Yucatán, and walking distance to the most authentic Mexican restaurants. The villa is very comfortable and spacious, with a fully equipped kitchen, gym, air conditioning, a quaint garden and pool area with chaise lounges and a perfect view to enjoy the sunset. Just a short distance from the colorful streets of Tulum’s town, you will find areas for strolling, shopping and dining.
~ An airport shuttle and ground transportation to and from all group excursions
The local driver that I have arranged is safe, extremely kind, accommodating and very knowledgeable about his region. He was born and raised in Chiapas, Mexico, knows the best places to explore the natural beauty of his country, and is excited to share some amazing experiences with us! You will be warmly greeted at the airport and shuttled in an air-conditioned vehicle with other retreat guests.

~ Excursions & Classes
I have a beautifully balanced selection of adventure, relaxation and excursions for you including:
A visit to explore sacred sites and archeological wonders. Before Tulum because Mexico’s mecca for yoga studios, boutiques, and luxury hotels, it was an epicenter of trade and spiritual conquest. The ancient Maya area of Tulum, located on the Yucatan Peninsula, juxtaposed the Caribbean Sea, is a home to ruins that were a significant location for the worship of the gods and goddesses. We’ll hear more about the rich history and experience it first hand.
Guided explorations of lagoons and jungles, including a climb up highest pyramid of Quintana Roo “Nohoch mul” to experience one of the best views of the Mexican jungle. There will be an option explore all of this magic and fun by bicycle or vehicle.
A visit with a Mayan community to share in a traditional Mayan ceremony and learn about their lifestyle and traditions.
Beach relaxation and a cenote visit. We’ll escape to a secret underworld of turquoise pools where Mayans communicated with gods. At these hidden locations, you can swim in crisp mineral-rich waters in magical caves or under a jungle-framed sky and feel lost in another time.
A relaxing and rejuvenating body treatment where you will find your inner and outer beauty in the integration of mind, body and soul. Your senses will be soothed and enlivened with this healing massage, that will leave you feeling blissed out.
A yoga class and guided meditations that will align, engage and illuminate you.
