I selected Tulemar based on the reviews I read here; even though I still had my doubts and thought maybe they sounded too good to be true. What can I say, this place is amazing. I literally just got back yesterday and could not wait to talk about it. The resort is beautiful, immaculately kept, and the service is outstanding....

I can not say enough about this property and the staff. The beach and views are some of the best in Costa Rica.
