We stayed in the Tule Casa villa and from our balcony saw multiple types of monkeys, a sloth, parrots and more. The beach was beautiful and secluded with fun waves. The pools were beautiful. We were here for Thanksgiving and the onsite restaurant did a fabulous job preparing a turkey - great meal. The best was our concierge Alex Salazar... More

The Tule Casa home was absolutely wonderful. Just stepping into this air conditioned, modern and luxurious space was a treat, but as we exited the kitchen and walked onto the 5 star deck, overlooking the ocean, with all the accommodations for dining, relaxing and entertaining, I was immediately smitten! However, having said all of this, the most memorable part of... More

Our stay at Tulemar Resort was absolutely incredible! Don’t even think twice about staying here! This property offers the best of both worlds - a lush tropical jungle teeming with wildlife - monkeys, sloths, Scarlett Macaws, Blue Morpho butterflies, and nature trails that lead you past a waterfall to a stunning private beach. The Sloth Institute is located on the... More

Roomy modern villa with nice finish out. Friendly staff and great onsite dining makes the stay easy. The private beach is super nice. The shuttle service is fast and always ready. The walk to town is easy, but cabs are super expensive. So walk or eat on site.

(We were actually here in May of 2014.) We took a few guided trips with companies that had a driver pick us up. But also was good to just hang out on the deck and wait for the monkeys to show up in the afternoon (on their way to the beach). (Saw some reviewers who complain about the monkeys, but... More
