This was our second stay in Tulemar, and again, it was amazing. We were 2 families staying in the Casa de Frutas, a beautifully appointed home. But what I love about Tulemar most is the service. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. Our concierge, Mauricio, is so great, he feels like family now. The maids were awesome, the food options...
