Join us for an inspirational week with Strangers to Friends Founder Carlyn Shaw

Come experience true friendships. Come experience yourself. 


Space is limited.  


Two inspirational female figures and businesses guide you to realize your highest potential

with happiness and organic business friendship marketing. 

Join our sacred space. 

Like the feel of Tulum, this adventure is a mix of eco chic luxe simplicity and raw beautiful natural adventure. This retreat is a combination of all of our favorite things, and the factors that we feel are important to be balanced: adventure, paradise, yoga, healthy food, friendships, tranquility, nature, love, travel, culture, and inner peace. This retreat takes you away from life as you know it, to a quiet remote jungle palapa, with time to focus on yourself and relationships with others through yoga and meditation, incredible nature, fresh diet, fun, adventure, and happiness. No wifi, no stress.

Time to realize dreams, see strengths, love life, share with others, and create and enjoy your own most extraordinary potential. A mix of simple and elegant, we cover all of the details, and foresee all desires and needs to ensure that you have a life-changing, relaxing, fulfilling, rejuvenating, and inspiring adventure.

This is an enlightened globetrekker adventure in partnership with Strangers to Friends.

Tulum, Mexico Retreat Feedback from Past Enlightened Globetrekker Adventures Guests

I am so thankful to have met you and spent the week getting to know you and sweet River.  I feel like we’ve known each other forever!  I really trusted my gut on investing in this trip and felt deep down that there was more to it than just the adventure retreat….although that alone was worth every penny!  It really was a perfect reset button for me and I feel drawn to that region so intensely.  Visiting these places again, now having shared them with both of my daughters, it just feels right.  It was so beautiful to meet someone like you who has taken the leap of faith and has now earned her wings :)  And emma and river, I see them being friends forever…so very sweet and cool and affirming.  I feel so blessed to have met the both of you, kindred souls, and I look forward to creating more together.  

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for a week of laughter and story telling and yoga and massage and adventuring! You all feel like family.  Andre, thanks for your time with the children and keeping them occupied with card games and art and reflection. And for the laughs and random facts :) Maria, you have a gift, thank you for sharing your energy this week. I intend on bringing the practice home. And I will visit and dive with you soon. Crystal, you are an inspiration for living and creating your dream life. I can’t wait to see what is to come!  You brought together a wonderful group of like minded people and created space for true relaxation and rejuvenation to happen. I’m so happy to have met you and look forward to seeing you again…. And river, we both love you and miss you already! Please visit us soon!! Til next time….

Thank you so much Crystal for including me as a provider in your Tulum Enlightened Globetrekker Retreat! It was such a pleasure to work with you and to meet the retreaters, the kids and the rest of your team. Great energy and such a beautiful location. You really did a great job of taking care of everyone’s needs, making sure that everyone was comfortable and having a great time. You thought of EVERYTHING! Doing the massages for your retreaters was such an amazing experience. Can’t wait til next time! GRACIAS!!!!!!!

Margo Guenther, Tulum, Mexico

Thank you for such a wonderful retreat. I am still relishing the jungle noises and soft sand and warm water in my memory. I so much loved the atmosphere of the jungle lodge and the yoga/meditation palapa. The food was so delicious and amazing. And the staff of the jungle lodge were sweet, attentive, and friendly. And of course you, Maria, and River were wonderful. And Andre was super great with the younger ones. Sending you and River lots of love.
