We stayed at Casa Las Nubes, which is one of the rental houses available in Tulemar. What an amazing experience! Breathtaking sunsets every night from the houses decks, an amazing private beach with mellow waves perfect for swimming/kayaking/SUPing/snorkeling, and well maintained on property hiking trails! We saw more wildlife staying at Casa Las Nubes than we did while hiking in...
