As wildlife enthusiasts, we had dreamed of visiting Costa Rica for many years. Our stay at Tulemar exceeded our wildest expectations! From the first-rate staff to the luxurious accommodations to the breathtaking scenery, Tulemar has it all. Our concierge, Michael Abarca, was nothing short of phenomenal. Upon our arrival, he treated us to a "welcome drink" in the restaurant. He... More

The location is right inside the national park so you see all kinds of animals. During our stay we saw monkeys, sloths, iguana, fruit bats, geekos, and an armdillo. We stayed at a premium villa which was fantastic. It was two floors. The bedrooms being on the lower floor and the living room and kitchen on the top floor. Everything... More

Our family had a fantastic time at the Buena Vista Villas. Our 2 bedroom villa was absolutely wonderful. The property was gorgeous. The pools were beautiful. The restaurant was delicious. And the staff (including both of our concierge hosts - Orlando & Miguel) were extremely friendly and exceedingly helpful. Highly recommended stay!!!

This was the best place to end our vacation in Costa ric. Tulemar bungalows blew us away. All of our expectations were met if not exceeded. The view from our bungalow was amazing! The entire staff was courteous and wonderful. Thank you Stephanie, Orlando, Miguel and the beach staff for a vacation where every need or desire was met .

Tulemar came recommended by a coworker, and it did not disappoint. Service was excellent, and staff was warm and friendly. Joshua,the driver, was very helpful and went out of his way to give us tips on where to eat and go and also stopped the resort shuttle numerous times to show us wildlife (monkeys, toucans) and the different types of...

We had the great pleasure of staying in one of the 3 room bungalows, with a sweeping view of the ocean and surrounding hillsides. Every morning we woke to different exotic birds outside our window, and every afternoon we watched the monkey play in the jungle trees. One one particularly rainy afternoon, it was fun to sit on the porch... More

Tulemar was a loverly property with tropical beauty. We loved having multiple beaches to visit close by. The staff were very professional, friendly and went out of their way to make our time special. They also assisted with scheduling a number of tours which were well organized and fun. We had only one glitch with the scheduling of an adventure... More

We stayed at Buena Vista in one of the Bungalows the week of July 16th-22nd. We had an awesome time. We look forward to going back in the near future. There are many restaurants easily within walking distance of this property. We saw sloths, igaunas, and monkeys everywhere.
