We recently returned from Costa Rica, where we stayed for part of the time at Tulemar. It was perfect in terms of location. The bungalows themselves were very nice -- two rooms with ample space for a family of four, nicely furnished and with great views of the ocean. The only thing I would have changed is to add some...
