We stayed for a week at the resort. It has a restaurant that serves three meals and a private beach with sand toys for kids, kayaks and boogie boards. We saw the three types of monkeys and sloths here at the resort. Two tips are the local snorkel guides from town bring guests within easy kayak distance so save money...

Wow, Tulemar was probably the best resort experience we've had. My wife and I spent a week there for our honeymoon and our only complaint was that we had to leave. We stayed in a bungalow that had an awesome view, regular wild life visits and plenty of room. Sure, these bungalows date back to the 80s, but they are...

My husband and I stayed four nights and five days. Our concierge, Mauricio, was fantastic from the start. First, the location and environment. I liked Tulemar more than Manuel Antonio National Park.
