We just spent five days in the bamboo villas. I cannot recommend staying here more. The views of the sunset were absolutely breathtaking. For a couple, we found the bamboo villa to be perfect. We loved having our own plunge pool to wake up and dive into or jump into after working out. The other really neat part was we...

We just returned from a delightful five night stay at Tulemar. I will add my voice to all the previous reviews extolling its wonders. The site is magnificent-- a jungle hillside sloping down to its own private beach. The wildlife are everywhere-- 3 types of monkeys, sloths, iguanas, scarlet macaws, all sighted on the property close to our villa. Our...

Where to start? We loved everything about Tulemar Bungalows. We stayed there for several days during our recent trip to Costa Rica, and it was our favorite part of the trip (and we stayed at the Springs Resort & Spa in Arenal, so it has some pretty stiff competition!). First and most importantly, our concierge Mauricio helped us from the...

We visited for a week in March 2017 with three kids (18, 15 and 7). Tulemar is stunning. The grounds are rich in wildlife and truly awe-inspiring jungle, forest and ocean vistas. We saw sloths, three kinds of monkeys, toucans, scarlet macaws, iguanas, geckos, bats, crabs, countless butterflies and more. It is nothing short of a paradise for naturalists. The...
