We choose Tulemar for our family holiday based on the trip advisor reviews and were not disappointed. The location was excellent, monkeys and iguanas roaming the property, the staff were excellent and our concierege was very helpful. Food was not fine dining but still very acceptable. We were there for 6 days and ate most meals at the hotel which...

We LOVED our stay at Tulemar. The location of the bungalow perched on the side of the cliff, overlooking the ocean, with monkeys and sloths in the trees all around, was really unbelievable. We saw as much wildlife in Tulemar as we did in the national park itself. We enjoyed the attentive service of the staff, the beautiful beach, the...

We wanted our honeymoon to be unique, somewhat rustic, and filled with adventure. Our time in CR was exactly that! Tulemar is a resort best suited for the physically fit- the property is very steep and requires some hiking to get around (especially to the beach, which was about 20 minutes down the mountain). They DO offer a complimentary shuttle,...
