Our stay at Tulemar was an incredible experience. This was our second time in Costa Rica, and this experience was very different from our first time.

My husband and I stayed in the casa mirador and we loved every second of our vacation at tulemar! I never wanted to leave. I spent the mornings on the balcony bird watching and my days either on the beach, snorkeling, kayaking, or hiking on the resort. I want to just move here.
