My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of staying within Tulemar at Casa Mirador Lower and it was more than either of us could have expected! Tulemar is a natural retreat with a Zen like presence in the air. We found Tulemar on trip advisor and read about all the fabulous reviews; this place lives up to the hype. We... More

When we decided on this area for our week vacation, we went with Tulemar based on the reviews. It was a dream come true! We usually rent a house and car and do our own thing. This was our first time at a resort that had so much included. From the housekeeper to shuttle drivers and maintenance staff, EVERYONE is... More

Such a wonderful resort. Tulemar exemplifies how a resort vacation should be! The amazing bungalows/villas, beach and service are so impressive! A must on your bucket list. Tree house living where the monkey and sloths come to visit you!

What a FANTASTIC property! We stayed in bungalow #121 for 3 nights.... You really feel like you're in a tree house in an isolated jungle. Wish it were longer.
