We saw more wildlife in the Tulemar Resort than anywhere else during our 2 weeks of touring Costa Rica. Howler monkeys, spider monkeys, sloths, toucans, iguanas and white-faced monkeys! The monkeys scamper across the rooftops swinging through the trees - amazing! Villas are beautifully appointed - service is impeccable. Private beach has kayaks and boogie boards for residents. HIGHLY recommended!

We were here for the holiday week of December 2014 and the surrounding area in Manuel Antonio was bursting with people and traffic, but inside the Tulemar gate, it was serene. Without leaving the property, you feel like you're in a park. We walked steep hiking trails and saw waterfalls, monkeys, sloths and lizards. The private beach was one of...

Really is an exceptional place. The room was spotless and comfortable. The view is second to none. The way the homes are set you feel nicely secluded.
