Why Tulemar Resort?

Tulemar's Exclusive Beach

Tulemar has a limited access beach making it the most private and safe beach in Costa Rica. You can relax in the beach chairs, use the Kayaks, and even order room service, all without anyone bothering you or trying to sell you anything. Tulemar’s beach is also the only beach in the area that is safe to use at night. If sitting on the beach at night, listening to the ocean and watching the stars is on the agenda, Tulemar is where you want to be!

Very Safe

Tulemar is the safest place in Costa Rica. Half the family want to go ATV or fishing, while the other half wants to enjoy Tulemar beach?  No reason to worry at all about family members that just want to enjoy Tulemar, they will be safe and happy when you get back! Want to go for a walk on the beach at midnight? In Tulemar, it will be just you, some hermit crabs, the stars and the Ocean!

Most Wildlife in Costa Rica

There is more wildlife in Tulemar than in any national park in Costa Rica. It is the busiest Monkey, Sloth and Macaw corridor in the world. Tulemar is also home to the sloth rehabilitation center, and Tulemar offers guided sloth walks daily.  Monkeys will visit the balcony several times a day, so make sure not to leave any food out!  Several scarlet macaws, hummingbirds and toucans also live in Tulemar, so make sure to bring your camera! 

Make Memories!

Releasing Sea Turtles

Lots of times turtles will bury their eggs in bad places along the beach where they have a low chance of survival. To keep our sea turtle population thriving, some locals stepped up and created a turtle sanctuary area on a remote beach where they relocate the turtle eggs. Jose is really involved with the turtle sanctuary here and if the timing works out he can setup a baby sea turtle release party!  This happens year round, but there are more eggs from July to December.  Often times they need help transplanting the eggs as well, so bring the kids to help bury the eggs! Book this in advance as most of the trip price goes towards supporting the sanctuary, and we can try to time it so you can see your contributions making their way to the sea!

This is a GoTulemar.com Exclusive Trip!

Jose Knows Fun!

Mr. Jose Serrano is one of our full time assistants who is standing by your whole stay here, and will be able to help you with any and everything you need!  Jose grew up here in the Manuel Antonio area, and can give you a real local perspective on where to go, what to do, where to eat, and what to skip! Before Tulemar, Jose worked at a nearby ranch with ATV’s, waterfalls and Ziplines so he knows where the excitement is!  Jose is also in contact with the Costa Rica Sea Turtle rescue facility nearby, so he always knows when the next group of baby sea turtles are about to be released! 

Hiking Trails

Around Tulemar beach, there are some great family hiking routes.  They are not too steep or long, and the whole family can enjoy them. For those who like a challenge, check out our guided  Reto Mae trail which starts by the Marina Pez Vela and ends on Tulemar Beach (actual view from trail in picture).  The MAE is steep and takes about two hours and is for those brave enough to get muddy and sweaty!  On the guided Reto MAE hike, we stop half way for snacks and drinks on a semi-deserted beach. The MAE trail has a cool waterfall we can visit as well. 

Reto MAE is GoTulemar.com Exclusive Trip!

Salty Breeze: This is the one of the best Villa on the property and trust me when I say the pictures do not do justice to how amazing this place is. From Hot tub to close proximity to family pool, this is literally the best Airbnb I have ever stayed at. I'm not exaggerating when I say that your place is 10 times better than the pictures. It's an absolute gem. We loved it so much and we will recommended to all our friends who plan on visiting Manuel Antonio. In addition. Jose is amazing and his hospitality was above and beyond.

Salty Breeze: I live in the mountains of Costa Rica and frequently vacation at the beach. I've been to many hotels and resorts in Manuel Antonio. Tulemar is the best. Shortly after booking John will put you in contact with Jose, your Tulemar liaison for your trip. Jose will meet you at the entrance of the resort, give you the tour of the property and then show you the house. If you have any questions just send Jose a message and he'll respond almost immediately. The house is beautiful and well positioned in the resort. It is far enough off of the main road to be private but not inconvenient and it has some beautiful ocean views. It's also close enough to the restaurant to walk easily as we did for all our meals. The house was super clean upon arrival. They are taking covid seriously at the resort. John is a great host. He's responsive, well spoken, and seems to passionately care about his guests having a great time in Costa Rica. I would definitely recommend Johns place to anyone considering a rental in Manuel Antonio. And yes, we had monkeys visit our deck.

Salty Breeze: This is honestly the most amazing place I’ve ever been, and I am a flight attendant who travels often. The peace, tranquility, and the nature! Not to mention how wonderful Jose was, he helped us plan the best jungle night tour, and found us the perfect dinner to end our night in paradise. Words can’t describe what you will feel here. Don’t hesitate. Ian-Michael

Jungle House: Wow! Jungle House is phenomenal. Beautiful home inside, beautiful nature surrounding, and extremely private. The concierge service was fantastic and so helpful. Quick access to a private beach was so great - we decided it wasn’t even worth going to Manuel Antonio once we saw how amazing the beach was. Overall top notch place!

Burying Sea Turtle Eggs

Today Mr. Jose took our new friends and their family out to relocate some turtle eggs to the Sea Turtle Sanctuary on a protected remote beach nearby. Last night, the money from their tour paid the famous “El Salvador” to comb the heavily populated Cocal beach area looking for poorly placed turtle nests. After a long night out, he finally found a nest right in the middle of a major walking path. Salvador knew that a person or animal would accidentally damage the nest, so he quickly removed the eggs and made his way to the sanctuary. Final tally was 105 eggs which we believe to be leatherback turtles, all relocated to the safety of the sanctuary. The kids were 5 and 7, and they loved digging the hole and burying the set of freshly discovered eggs so they could incubate. And Milo, who runs the sanctuary, had one more surprise waiting for us. Some of the eggs relocated a month ago had just hatched, so we got to watch about 40 baby sea turtles make their way to the sea! It was an amazing way to spend the morning in Costa Rica!
