We had a great week with a family reunion of 19 people. The beach. The service. The infrastructure really worked out well. Best of all was the attention of Harley, Mario, Marlow, Erick, Daniela and Bryan. We had a very easy time even though we were traveling with 3 small children. Tulemar is perfect for families. If you want a...

We just spent 9 incredible days at this beautiful resort. We had never been to Costa Rica and found this place on line, as we thought we could do so many activities with short day trips, but still be staying at a place that had a private beach. Everything about this resort exceeded our expectations! Casa Panorama is even more...

I love to travel, but I've found it incredibly difficult to start planning my husband and I's next vacation without saying over and over 'why don't we just go back to Tulemar.'

We had a fantastic stay here but one warning- make sure to stay in one bungalow. We were told that a transfer from one bungalow to another would be no hassle, but we ended up having no room for 2 hours during the middle of our stay. The wildlife in the compound is truly astounding with close-up views of 3...
