We recently took a weeklong vacation in Costa Rica, staying at Casa las Nubes. From the beginning, working with Tulemar was a pleasure. They actively communicated with us on planning our arrival and activities during our stay. We ended up taking surfing lessons and the ATV/canopy tours, both of which were incredible. We also booked a guide for a hike... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Tulemar and Manuel Antonio. We stayed in a bungalow which had a beautiful ocean view and was located in close proximity to one of the pools with a restaurant near it. We loved the convenience of having multiple pools onsite, a private beach, a great restaurant onsite, and options to do spa treatments. Excursions... More

Tulemar Bungalows and VIllas were incredible! The customer service of our personal conceirge Chris was above and beyond.

Last four days of vacation was a stop in the Manuel Antonio area at Tulemar Bungalows found through Trip Advisor. The place was about 4.5 stars and the service made it a full 5--same as so many others have noted. The design of the freestanding octagon bungalow was unique and well-crafted. Our five member family fit quite comfortably. Has its... More

We were traveling in June with our family and there were 7 of us ranging in ages from 6-72. Of course, we expected Tulemar to be nice, but I was afraid that it would be to too touristy and not have that Costa Rican feel to it.
