Discover Manuel Antonio with Us...

Tulemar is a 33 acre, gated and secure, residential resort located right in the heart of Manuel Antonio. There is a collection of over 45 different, unique and individual accommodations, ranging from rustic Bungalows to luxurious Private Villas. The properties are surrounded by jungle and the wildlife is abundant; you'll see monkeys, sloths and exotic birds throughout the property and on our hiking trails. At the Tulemar Beach you'll find warm, tropical waters with a sandy beach and lots of shady palm trees plus free lounge chairs, umbrellas, kayaks, boogie boards, towels and food/beverage service.

Tulemar is not the traditional resort, an all-inclusive or a franchised  hotel (with loud music playing around the pool areas and lobby). It is continually ranked among the top three properties in Manuel Antonio by Trip Advisor based upon service, staff and accommodations. Tulemar was Trip Advisor's 2014 Winner of #1 Hotel for Families in Costa Rica, #1 in Central America and #2 in the World. 

Manuel Antonio is a small town located in the tropical forest of Costa Rica’s Central Pacific coast. Famous for hosting one of the most visited national parks of the country: “Manuel Antonio National Park”. Even though it is one of the smallest of its kind, this park is the home of more than a hundred species of mammals and birds, amazing landscapes of great mountains and four white sandy beaches hidden in a jungle of stunning forests. It also has a large marine biodiversity with beautiful coral reefs.

Inside the park you can find several hiking trails to: Punta Catedral, the waterfall, the lookout, Espadilla beach, Manuel Antonio beach, Congo's trail, Gemelas beach, Puerto Escondido, Mangrove and Sloth trails, all with universal accessibility facilities, rest areas, scenic overlooks and scientific interpretations. These are just some of the reasons FORBES ranked it amongst the 12 most beautiful parks in the world in 2011. But don’t just take our word, go and visit for yourself.​
