My family and I are looking to book a villa though Tulemar (Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica), but apparently each villa on their property is individually owned. We called the number listed on their website and on Trip Advisor to book, and Tulemar said over the phone (and online) that to book you have to put 50% down. On the lease agreement they sent us via email, they gave us a few option to send the payment, via a Wells Fargo bank account or wiring it somewhere else. I understand that if the property is individually owned but managed by Tulemar, that we would have to send the payment to the owner. But this all seems a bit strange, depositing money in a random bank account... Does anyone have experience in booking at Tulemar? Is this a normal process?
