Welcome to Duende Retreats

Hello, fellow wanderers!

I'm Regina Tingle, and I'm thrilled to be the founder of Duende Retreats, a travel company born out of my deep passion for authentic, transformative travel experiences.

Ever since I was a child, during my first travel experiences on long, cross-continental road trips, I've been captivated by the world's vast beauty and cultural diversity. As I grew older, my desire to explore, learn, and connect with people from different corners of the globe only intensified. The magic of travel and its ability to touch our souls and broaden our horizons has always fascinated me.

After years of exploring countless destinations and immersing myself in unique cultural experiences, I realized that there was something truly special about those off-the-beaten-path moments, those authentic encounters that leave you forever changed. It was these profound connections that sparked the idea for Duende Retreats.

At Duende Retreats, we believe that travel has the power to awaken our spirits and ignite a sense of wonder within us. That's why we curate extraordinary retreats to some of the world's most captivating destinations, with a focus on enriching experiences that go beyond the surface.

Our mission is to create a harmonious blend of adventure, cultural immersion, and mindful exploration. We carefully design each retreat to be a transformative journey, allowing our guests to discover their inner selves while connecting with the essence of the places we visit.

With a deep respect for the environment and local communities, we strive to leave a positive impact on the destinations we explore. Sustainable travel is at the core of our values, and we work closely with local partners to ensure that our retreats benefit the communities we encounter.

As a team, we are committed to providing unparalleled service and attention to detail, ensuring that every aspect of your getaway is seamlessly organized and truly unforgettable. Whether you're a seasoned traveler or venturing into the world of exploration for the first time, Duende Retreats welcomes you with open arms.

I invite you to embark on a transformative journey with us—a journey that will awaken your senses, expand your perspective, and fill your heart with memories that will last a lifetime. Together, let's wander off the beaten path, embrace the unknown, and let the duende of travel guide us to extraordinary places.

Thank you for joining us.

With love and wanderlust, 

Regina Tingle
