  • Costa Rica’s Borders are Opening to the United States, Canada, & more!

    We think we can all admit that it’s been a…weird…year. A year full of uncertainty. A year full of adapting to a “new normal”. A year full of missing school graduations, weddings, family gatherings, and vacations.

    It’s no surprise that a lot of us are chomping at the bit to get back out there and explore.

    Lucky for you, Costa Rica’s borders are slowly, but surely, opening up to our foreign guests. And we could not be more excited to get you back to your home away from home, Tulemar!

  • Tulemar Sarongs Are Here!

    ✓ Swimsuit

    ✓ Sunscreen

    ✓ Sunglasses

    ✓ Hat

    ✓ Flip Flops

    ✓ Beach Towel

    Does this look like your packing list for Costa Rica? If so, we don’t blame you! When heading to sun, sand and sea, it’s likely these are the only things you’re thinking of packing.

    Tulemar sarongs are now available to guests, and – we may be biased – but we sure do think they’re pretty!

  • 7 Reasons to Visit Tulemar After Covid-19

    It’s been several months since we started our “new normal”: distancing ourselves from strangers and loved ones alike, cancelling vacations and plans that involve public spaces, and learning to enjoy a lot more time at home.

    For those of us with itchy feet, it’s been a tough – albeit neccesary – learning curve. While we may not know for sure when we will be allowed to get back out there and travel again, that doesn’t stop us from daydreaming and planning! And, we hope that doesn’t stop you, either. Afterall, it will be happening eventually.

    If you find yourself trying to mentally plan your first vacation back out into the real world, we strongly suggest Tulemar. Not just be because we’re biased….But because we know it’s the perfect place for a post-quarantine reset.

    Need a little convincing? Here’s 7 reasons why Tulemar is the perfect place to visit after Covid-19.

    1. Private Villas – We don’t know about you, but, the thought of staying in a big hotel building with hundreds of other people just doesn’t sit well with us quite yet. At Tulemar, all our properties are private and individual….Which means you can stay completely isolated during your entire vacation if you want.
    2. Private Pools – Okay, so a private villa is nice…But you’re on vacation. You want water. Lucky for you, several of our private villas have their own private pool. This means you can splash with wreckless abandon while knowing you’re staying safe and healthy.
    3. Lush Jungle – Built on the side of a hill in the middle of the lush jungle, Tulemar is surrounded by more trees and wildlife than buildings and people. It’s basically begging for you to come stay isolated in its presence.
    4. Secluded Beach – The Tulemar beach is a beautiful secluded strip of soft sand and gentle waves. With TONS of space to spread out, you can rest assured that you can safely socially distance yourself from others while enjoying one of the best parts of Costa Rica: its beach!
    5. Personal Conceirge – Every group that stays at Tulemar is assigned a personal concierge. The concierge is responsible for everything from arranging transporation to doing your grocery shopping for you. Not interested in leaving your villa during your vacation? Lucky for you, you don’t have to! Simply let your concierge know if you need anything at all, and they will be happy to be of service to you!
    6. Private Transportation – Tulemar works with wonderful transportation companies than can safely get you to and from the San Jose airport to Tulemar in a private – and sanitized – van. With extra precautions being taken during this time, you can rest assured that your trip will be safe, easy,  and clean!
    7. Safety and Sanitary Measures – At Tulemar, we have always prided ourselves on our cleanliness and exceptional housekeeping practices…But now more than ever, we guarantee an exceptionally clean stay. To read more about our new practices, click here.

    Please continue to contact us, and check out our Covid-19 updates, to learn more about Costa Rica’s travel restrictions. Once you feel safe to travel again, we will have your villa waiting for your arrival! We are more anxious than ever to see you, and we can’t wait to share paradise with you again soon.

  • All Inclusive in Costa Rica

    Is Tulemar an all inclusive resort? We get this question a lot….And, the answer is no, we aren’t an all-inclusive resort, however, we ARE inclusive in every other way! Meaning, we don’t discriminate and we welcome guests of all backgrounds to enjoy our resort. (Note: if you want to see why we are BETTER than an all inclusive resort, check out the list here!).

    That’s why we were feeling extra proud of our little country on May 26th, 2020 when Costa Rica became the first Central American country to legalize same-sex marriage.

    This milestone was covered by countless international news associations, including time.com:

    The first same-sex weddings have taken place in Costa Rica, after a landmark court ruling came into effect at midnight. While activists’ plans for a national celebration had to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, a late-night television broadcast culminated in the wedding ceremony of Alexandra Quiros and Dunia Araya. As the brides kissed, guests in attendance cheered and threw rainbow rose petals.

    In 2018, Costa Rica’s constitutional court ruled that a ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional and discriminatory, giving the country’s parliament 18 months to legislate or face the ban being automatically overruled. Monday night marked that deadline, and the move has been welcomed by human rights activists across the region.

    “Empathy and love should from now on be the guiding principles which will allow us to move forward,” Costa Rica’s President Carlos Alvarado Quesada tweeted shortly after the midnight ruling came into effect. Quesada, who took office in May 2018, had campaigned promising to legalize same-sex marriage; Costa Rica’s 2018 election also saw the country’s first openly gay congressman, Enrique Sanchez, seated.

    Despite opposition from religious groups and a handful of lawmakers, Costa Rica is the first country in Central America to legalize gay marriage, and the sixth in Latin America. But although legislation in recent years has moved to enable gay couples to marry in Argentina, Ecuador, Brazil, Colombia, Uruguay and parts of Mexico, the LGBTQ community still faces widespread discrimination and violence throughout the region. From 2014-2019, least 1,300 LGBTQ people were murdered in Latin America and the Caribbean, according to research last year undertaken by a regional network of gay rights groups.

    Here, we believe love is love.

  • Ashley and Fabio Host an Online Concert in Villa Kiskadee

    It’s been a loooong few weeks….For many, it seems that life has been put on hold. We are quarantined at home, we can’t visit family and friends, and we certainly can’t travel to all our favorite places (*ahem*, like Costa Rica!).

    Here at Tulemar, we are feeling it, too. Our day-to-day lives have been disrupted…and while the situation feels heavy, we have continued to approach things the pura vida way. We have found projects to occupy our days, and we can’t help but focus on the light at the end of the tunnel. That light being that one day – hopefully soon – we will be reunited with our beloved guests here in tropical paradise.

    Every day we hope that each and every one of our past, present, and future guests are safe, healthy, and happy. And in an effort to send a little love to you all – and ease any anxiety you may feel from the current global pandemic – our incredible concierge team hosted an online concert on Facebook Live straight from the beautiful Villa Kiskadee inside Tulemar!

    With the amazing Ashley on vocals and the wonderful Fabio on guitar, this duo is nothing short of incredible. And you thought concierging was their only talent! Hoping to get a glimpse of a different conceirge? They entire concierge team (Mau, Brian, Javier, and Chris) all attended the concert in person…While maintaining social distance, of course.

    If you weren’t able to tune into the live concert, have no fear! You can easily watch it below.

    Watch Now

    If you catch yourself singing and dancing along, don’t be embarrassed. We were too!

    We hope you enjoyed the show. Be sure to check back on Facebook often, as there are many more Facebook Live videos to come.

  • Costa Rican Recipes To Try During Quarantine

    Burnt out on banana bread? Perhaps you’re currenty dreaming of a tropical vacation in a Tulemar villa and are craving some yummy Costa Rican fare as a result?

    If that’s the case for you, what is more Costa Rican than gallo pinto and an ice cold guaro sour?

    Gallo Pinto is a versatile rice and beans dish that can be served for breakfast, lunch, or dinner….And a guaro sour is a delightful Costa Rican cocktail! Below are recipes to both so you can bring a little Costa Rica to your kitchen today:

    Gallo Pinto:


    • 2 15-ounce cans cooked red or black beans
    • 2 cups cooked rice
    • Short grain white is preferred, but brown can be used to make the dish healthier!
    • 1 white onion, chopped
    • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
    • 1 jalapeno, chopped (optional)
    • 1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
    • Salsa Lizano
    • Cilantro


    • Sautee onion, bell pepper, jalapeno, and garlic in large pot for two minutes
    • Add beans and salsa Lizano, and let simmer for 5-7 minutes
    • Slowly stir in cooked rice
    • Simmer on low heat for 15 minutes, or until all moisture is absorbed
    • Stir in cilantro to taste
    • Serve warm and save the rest for yummy leftovers!

    Guaro Sour:


    • 2 ounces guaro (Cacique is the most well-known brand)
    • 2 ounces simple syrup
    • 2 teaspoons raw sugar
    • 1 lime cut into thin wedges
    • Club Soda
    • Ice


    Put guaro, sugar, and lime wedges in a small glass. Muddle generously. Leave everything in the glass and add ice cubes. Top it off with a splash of club soda.

    *For extra flare, sugar the rim of the glass and add a lime wedge*

    Our suggestion? Make both recipes, then sit down to enjoy them while watching a beautiful Costa Rican sunset via our live-stream! It’s (kind of ) just like being at Tulemar.

    Until we can see you again…

  • Experience Tulemar From Home During Covid-19

    Things are looking a little different around Tulemar lately…Our secluded beach is bare, our ocean-view restaurant is vacant, our private villas are seeing more monkeys than tourists, and we are all practicing social distancing in hopes of remaining safe and healthy during this trying time of Covid-19.

    However, while many hospitality companies are choosing to temporarily close their doors, Tulemar has remained open so our hardworking staff can use the down time to catch up on projects and get creative with the brand, which means that there are now more ways than ever to experience Tulemar from home while you are in lock-down!

    Our incredible concierge team is dedicated to guest satisfaction, and not having physical guests at the property doesn’t stop them from doing their job. Through Facebook and Instagram Live videos, our conceirge team is passionate about bringing the tropics to you.

    Their videos included answering guest FAQs, touring various villas, and showing off the Tulemar property in unique ways. Want to make sure you aren’t missing out on the fun? Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram! The concierge team is offering videos 2 times a week to make sure you’re getting your weekly dose of vitamin-sea from your couch.

    While the concierge team is hard at work making sure our guests are still getting the Tulemar service from home, our reservations team, maintenance staff, and housecleaning crew are all hard at work, too. Whether rearranging reservations, informing concerned guests on the latest updates in Costa Rica, or making sure every inch of the resort is in tip-top shape for when it’s time for guests to return, our team has it under control while practicing safe distancing to ensure their health.

    There’s no denying that we are in uncertain times…However, we are thrilled that our guests, our community, and our country are all taking the appropriate precautions to make sure that we can all get back to exploring again soon. If you’re feeling anxious to get back out in the world, our reservations team is still actively booking reservations for the future so you have something to look forward to. Feel free to contact them for availabilty and booking at any time!

    As always, we cannot wait to see you soon. Until them, stay safe and healthy. We will see you online!

  • The Sloth Institute of Costa Rica’s “#NoAnimalSelfies” Campaign

    It’s no surprise that one of the most exciting experiences for Tulemar guests to have is to see wildlife right from their villa patio. Whether its macaws flying over your bungalow, monkeys playing in your rental’s infinity pool, or a sleepy sloth hanging next to your private villa….It’s always a treat to see the wildlife in its own environment.

    Often guests say they see more wildlife inside Tulemar than they do in the Manuel Antonio National Park, and a large part of that is due to two special committees within Tulemar dedicated to their our wildlife’s preservation and growth: the”Nature and Wildlife Committee” and the “Tree Committee” that helps preserve their habitat. In additional to these committees is our partnership with The Sloth Institute of Costa Rica, which works hard on the research, education, and conservation of Costa Rica’s sloths and other animals. 

    The Sloth Institute of Costa Rica’s newest campaign –  called#StopAnimalSelfies – is to educate tourists on the negative impact of interacting with wildlife, and they are working hard to stop tourists from feeding, interacting with, and especially holding wildlife for photos.

    Posing with wildlife for photos is a trend that has taken popularity over the past few years due to the increased use of social media….And while holding a cute sloth makes for a great photo, the impact is extremely harmful for the sloth and it’s something most tourist are not aware of.

    We asked Sam Trull, co-founder of The Sloth Institute of Costa Rica to share some of the new campaign with us. This is what she had to say:

    The #StopAnimalSelfies campaign was created by the MINAE/SINAC offices of the government of Costa Rica in order to educate tourists about the dangers and cruelty surrounding the wildlife photo prop industry.  Wildlife all over the world are facing an extinction crisis caused by habitat destruction and the illicit trade.  This illegal trade in wild animals can take on many faces with many places even posing as “rescue centers” or “sanctuaries” pretending to benefit animal welfare.  But any place that allows/encourages you to touch, feed, or take selfies with wild animals does not have their best interest in mind.  Luckily, the government of Costa Rica is trying to crack down on this type of animal exploitation by educating tourists to not participate in these kinds of opportunities by asking them to instead take photos with stuffed animals.  At the airports in San Jose and Liberia and a few other locations around Costa Rica you can find selfie stations where you can take photos with stuffed sloths, macaws, turtles etc and learn more about this initiative.

    Here at TSI, we were so excited when we were asked to join this campaign because our stuffed mascot, Freedom, who has been taking selfies with tourists for a couple of years now, has many new stuffed animal friends to help spread the message to #StopAnimalSelfies and to #SayNoToSlothSelfies.

    While we know spotting wildlife is likely high on your list of “must-dos” in Costa Rica, please remember to never touch, feed, or hold wildlife. And if you want a photo with Freedom so you can help spread the message, join us on our daily Sloth Walk or simply ask your personal concierge!

  • Lonely Planet Names Costa Rica One of the Best Countries to Visit in 2020

    As the current decade rounds out, we are spending a lot of time reflecting on the past 10 years. We are seeing the #10YearChallenge on social media, we are thinking of all the changes we’ve gone through, all the changes the world has gone through, and all the memories we have made here at Tulemar.

    Reflection is great, but want to know what’s better?

    Preparing for the upcoming decade, all the changes you hope to experience, and all the memories you plan to make!

    And if we’re going to prepare for an incredible new decade, why not set the tone with an amazing trip to Costa Rica, which, ahem, by the way, was just named in The Top 10 Countries To Visit in 2020 by Lonely Planet. *cue confetti cannon*.

    There’s no secret why Costa Rica made the list… After all, it has a lot to offer. Incredible views, magical wildlife, friendly locals, diverse topography, and sustainable tourism (hooray!) are just some of the honorable mentions.

    Here’s what Lonely Planet had to say:

    Costa Rica flies the flag for sustainable tourism. This small country’s vast biodiversity attracts visitors keen to spot sleepy sloths in trees, red-eyed frogs paralysing their predators, and whales in the Pacific. Costa Ricans understand the importance of preserving their slice of tropical paradise and have found a way to invite others in while living in harmony with their neighbours – from leafcutter ants to jaguars. Ninety percent of the country’s energy is created by renewable sources, and it could become one of the first carbon-neutral countries in 2020. Adventure lovers can hike volcanoes or ride a zip line, while those craving ‘me time’ can enjoy yoga retreats and spa experiences. The catchphrase pura vida (pure life) is more than a saying, it’s a way of life.

    We love the mention of living in harmony…. Which, by the way, is exactly what you’ll experience at Tulemar!

    Nestled within the jungle overlooking the ocean, you will have the opportunity to live in harmony with lizards, monkeys, sloths, macaws, toucans, and other exotic wildlife in the area! And, with a wide range of varying accommodations, there a little something for everyone here.

    For larger groups, or even smaller groups that prefer space and luxury, we have several private luxury villas to choose from. Most of these come with their own private pools, open air living spaces, luxurious amenities, and a personal concierge to assist you in anything you need prior to and during your stay.

    Prefer something a little more quaint or rustic? We have several 2, 3, or 1 bedroom options that are excellent for your next getaway! All these come with access to a personal concierge and access to all the resort amenities (including our secluded beach!).

    So, gather your family, friends, or just yourself, and head to Tulemar to start your decade off on the right (sandy and bare) foot. Hasta pronto!

    Pura Vida,

With over 50 accommodations, all varying in size, design, and style, there is plenty to choose from when making your first trip to Tulemar, and plenty to keep you coming back.

    Whether you’re into sleek, modern architecture, Bali-tropical design, or rustic and cozy style, Tulemar has it all. Here are a few examples:

    Tulemar Bungalows:
    These classic bungalows give you the sense that you’re in a jungle treehouse. Nestled among the trees, their octagonal shape full of windows soaks in all the surrounding flora and fauna of Tulemar. You’ll experience spectacular jungle and ocean views from every bungalow. These simple and earthy units are very clean and well-maintained. They also come equipped with all of the modern conveniences expected from a luxury resort. Bonus: The majority of the classic bungalows are undergoing simple renovations to help elevate their luxury feel. You can see more here.

    Casa de Frutas:
    Casa de Frutas is a luxurious villa that is nothing short of magical. Its tropical design inspired by Bali architecture and style invites you in and makes you feel at home while also making you feel like Indonesian royalty. The white interior is framed by exposed wood and sprinkled with Balinese accents to create the perfect tropical ambiance for your Costa Rican getaway. With 3 enclosed suites, an open air living space with magnificent ocean views, and a private pool area fit for a VIP, Casa de Frutas is the perfect tropical oasis you’ve been dreaming of.

    PazAmore, SolAngelo, Bamboo Villas:
    Sleek modern lines, natural accents, and luxurious open spaces that compliment and respect the nature that surround them. That’s what you’ll get when you step inside one of these vacation homes, all designed by award winning Costa Rican architect, Andres Brenes. Each villa is unique, yet they all echo the same modern and awe-inspiring style. In these rentals you’ll find modern – and sometimes even industrial – architecture. But don’t be fooled, each villa is still very warm and inviting with vaulted ceilings, open-air living spaces, and natural accents such as bamboo and stone. Experiencing a stay at any villa built by Andres Brenes is a true treat, especially for those who value unique and luxurious architecture. For those who want to experience more of Andres’s designs, he also built Tulemar’s partner resort, Three-Sixty Boutique Hotel.

    Don’t think the design stops there. There are dozens of other vacation homes inside Tulemar that all boast various styles, decor, and design. You can check all of them out here.

  • Video Tour of Tulemar’s Casa las Nubes Luxury Villa

    What do you picture when you think of the word “luxury”? Is it a large luxury villa in a tropical setting? Is it an ocean view from the back patio of said luxury villa? Is it a large private infinity pool that spans throughout the first floor with concrete structures made for walking so you feel as though you’re walking on water when you enter the house? That last question may feel a little too specific, but if it piqued your interest luckily for you we can show you what we mean in our home video tour below!

    Tulemar’s Casa las Nubes is a true work of art, with a curved design that soaks in all its jungle surroundings. Spend time on the patio enjoying the amazing ocean view and wildlife watching. Play in the large infinity pool with easy access from inside the open air house. Relax in your secluded suite. Or, grill dinner while watching the sunset from the pool overlooking the jungle. It’s your call, and as far as we’re concerned there is no wrong choice!

    The villa sleeps up to 10 people, and with 4 suites across 3 levels, there is plenty of space for everyone to have privacy and seclusion.

  • My Tan Feet Stays At Tulemar

    If you’re planning a trip to Costa Rica, chances are you’ve heard of My Tan Feet. If you haven’t heard of them, they are Costa Rica’s leading travel blog, and they are an incredible resource for planning your trip around the country.  They have vacation guides, travel tips, advice, and personal stories so you can be an educated traveler, and we are beyond honored to have Tulemar featured as a hot destination on the blog.

    Samantha and Yeison, the founders of My Tan Feet, stayed with us a year ago to scope out the property, take a sloth walk, and learn about everything Tulemar offers. They stayed in the wonderful Casa del Mar for 3 nights and wrote an incredible write up of everything Tulemar.

    Here’s some of what they had to say:

    Luxury hotels usually always have excellent service. The employees are nice, attentive and engaging which should be expected for a high end place but at Tulemar, you get much more than quick service. You get your very own 24/7 concierge!

    They meet you at reception, take you to your house, show you around and give you their personal number so that you can always reach them in case you need anything.

    Our concierge, Ashley, called us in the mornings and evenings to check what our plans were, if we needed any recommendations or hotels or tours and just to see how our day was.

    All the employees are incredibly nice and attentive at Tulemar. At the restaurant, the waiters always filled up our waters (a rarity in Costa Rica), the drivers gave us a ride even though they were off duty and the gardener even pointed out a porcupine to us!

    From the moment you enter their property, they treat you not just like a paying guest but as family. They really do go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable as possible.


    So, with some changes happening at Tulemar, it was a no-brainer to invite My Tan Feet back to the resort to cover the news.

    The Tulemar Bungalows are undergoing renovations to become the Premium Bungalows. These Premium Bungalows will provide all the rustic charm of the original bungalows, but with an updated & refreshed feel. My Tan Feet was able to see the renovations happening and wrote a wonderful explanation of all the changes that are happening.

  • Adopt a Sloth With The Sloth Institute Inside Tulemar

    Have you ever dreamed of owning your very own sloth? Now you can with The Sloth Institute of Costa Rica located inside Tulemar amongst its luxury vacation rentals and villas!

    The Sloth Institute of Costa Rica is a non-profit organization located inside Tulemar. Their mission is to enhance the well-being and conservation of wild and captive sloths through research, education, and rehabilitation.

    Sloths are native to Costa Rica, but unfortunately habitat destruction is a major threat to sloths’ environment. Tulemar and The Sloth Institute of Costa Rica have been working together to create an excellent example of how responsible and environmentally respectful development can ensure these creatures – and all the other magnificent wildlife – continue to exist and thrive.

    Costa Rica Named The World’s Most Relaxing Destination by CEOWorld

    When people hear the word “vacation” most often images of swinging in a hammock at a private villa, reading a book on the beach, or sipping a cocktail while watching the sunset comes to mind. In other words, images of relaxation and bliss.

    However, with technology taking over our every day lives, it becomes harder and harder to unplug and disconnect from the things that make us feel less-than-relaxed. This means that even on vacation it is difficult to fully let go and recharge the way we should even in our luxurious vacation rentals with ocean views.

    That is why now more than ever, where you choose to vacation is just as important as how you choose to vacation. Choosing a destination that contributes to relaxation and rejuvenation is crucial if you’re looking to unwind and recharge.

    Lucky for you, CEOWorld just named Costa Rica the most relaxing travel destination for 2019! With its high Happiness Index, its stable government, and its lack of army, Costa Rica ticks all the boxes for an environment full of relaxation and peace.

    It one of the most peaceful countries in Central America and holds the image of the land of peace and harmony. It has a high ranking in the Happiness Index as well. Costa Rica is a popular tourist destination and has a stable government and political system. It does not have an army and the living standards of the place is really high. It is also extremely safe for residents as well as tourists. It is internationally famous for its flora and fauna, with plethora of national parks and biodiversity. The unimaginable beauty along with environment-friendly accommodations really add to the exquisiteness of the place. Costa Rica follows the saying pura vida, depicting pure life. It is a way of life lived by most in Costa Rica which inspires us of living a simple life by making changes for well-being and contentment. – CEOWorld

  • Video Tour of Tulemar’s Villa Cielito

    Family friendly. Open and inviting. Cozy. Perfect. Breathtaking. Those are just a few of the cliche adjectives we could use to describe Tulemar’s amazing vacation rental home Villa Cielito. However, this villa is anything but cliche.

    Villa Cielito is a perfect family villa, perched on Tulemar’s hillside with spanning ocean views over the Pacific.

    Its open kitchen and large entertaining area opens up to a spacious deck with a full dining table, a comfortable sitting area, and a large Jacuzzi tub with… you guessed it… incredible ocean views.

    Do we even need to mention the open-air stone showers? Each bedroom comes with its own, and it’s enough to make you feel like you’re at an exotic spa every time you bathe!

    But, we’ve said too much. Take a look yourself in this video tour of the villa. And, trust us when we say you’ll want to watch until the end where you’ll see a debut from one of the villa’s favorite guests!

  • It’s Whale Watching Season in Manuel Antonio, and Tulemar’s Tour Partner Has Everything You Need!

    “What wildlife can I see when I stay at Tulemar?”. It’s one of the most asked questions we get, and guests are always blown away when we tell them there is a high chance they’ll see monkeys, sloths, toucans, macaws, and lizards right from their vacation rental when staying in Tulemar.  (We can thank our amazing friends at The Sloth Institute of Costa Rica for that!) In fact, our guests often tell us they see more wildlife inside Tulemar than they do in the National Park, and that has us feeling mighty proud if we do say so ourselves.

    But what about marine wildlife? Lucky for you, August and September are common months for migrating whales to have babies. This means that they are active and often seen during daily excursions with Tulemar’s partnering tour company, Sunset Sails.

    Here is what you can find on the company’s site:

    Our company, Sunset Sails Tours has been performing whale watching tours in Manuel Antonio for more than 16 years and our tour guides have a lot of very interesting information about this Magnificent Mammal which they will share with you during the whale watching tour.

    We do recommend going on our morning tour to see the Humpback Whales because as we will mention in this post, the best time to see whales is from August – October and this is considered to be rainy season here in Costa Rica and much of the afternoon time is sometimes filled with rain. The good news is we have a morning whale watching tour from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  This provides you with nice weather conditions and a great chance of viewing the Humpback Whale.

    The best time and considered to be the Peak Season to see Humpback Whales around the coast of Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica is from August through the end of October.  With that being said, the Humpback Whale does make an appearance through out the year but as we mentioned, the highest chance of viewing them is from August – October.

    If you have an opportunity to take a coastal cruise, when whales are in the area, you really don’t want to miss the chance. Sunset Sails is ideally equipped to take advantage of that opportunity and has helped create many lasting memories of the thrilling experience of seeing these wondrous marine inhabitants.

    There are just a few months of the year, when the humpback whales pass through the waters off of Manuel Antonio, Quepos, on their annual migration from  Alaska to Costa Rica. If you should be fortunate enough to visit Costa Rica, during those few months of the year, you just might be in for an unexpected treat. They are not as plentiful as the ever present dolphins, and they don’t reside in these waters, so a chance to see them is something very special.

    Sunset Sails loves to bring guests out to look for whales and other marine wildlife (like dolphins and turtles, which are seen very often!), however, it’s important to understand that these animals ARE wild, which means there is never a guarantee they’ll make an appearance. However, with a lot of patience and a little bit of hope, you just may spot a visitor whale for yourself!

    Do you want to explore the gorgeous water off the coast of Manuel Antonio and try your hand at spotting a majestic humpback whale? Ask your concierge to book you a tour with Sunset Sails and you’ll be on the high seas in no time.

  • Tulemar Resort’s Fan Art of Destiny the Sloth

    At Tulemar Resort, we love nothing more than finding a guest that loves sloths as much as we do. So, when we met Dee Jay Sturrock and found out that not only is he obsessed with sloths, but he is also a wildlife artist, we knew we were in for a treat!

    Dee Jay has visited Costa Rica many times in hopes of seeing a sloth in the wild and he was delighted when he learned of Tulemar and the Sloth Institute of Costa Rica. Dee Jay was so excited to show off all his sloth knowledge on the Sloth Walk. It was then that he fell in love with The Sloth Institute’s very own “Destiny”.

    Destiny had made her home right outside where Dee Jay’s vacation rental home, Villa Mot Mot. Every day, Dee Jay made a point to try and spot Destiny, and quickly he became inspired to create a painting of her.

    We asked Dee Jay about this experience, and this is what he said:

    Hi! My name is Deejay(Darren James) Sturrock. I have loved(been obsessed with) Sloths for as long as I can remember.

    It was my absolute dream to see some in the wild, and couldn’t wait for my first visit to Costa Rica. I went home disappointed though, after doing three tours that week I had seen zero Sloths. On our families second trip, we decided to spend the week in Manuel Antonio, to guarantee some form of contact with some. While I spotted two in the national park with the help of our guide, they were really high up in the canopy and sleeping. I could barely get a glimpse of a fur ball in my zoom lens. My life changed on my third trip, when I discovered The Tulemar Sloth Institute. I was so excited the first time I visited! Tulemar exceeded my wildest expectations.

    Our first day, we took the Sloth walk. That was when we met Destiny. She was “living” in one of the smaller Royal palms not far from our room at the Villa Motmot. It was instant love. For our weeks stay it became a constant daily activity to “find” our little Destiny. If we couldnt find her, one of the helpful volunteers would give us a hand, as she was under 24hr supervision. I was fortunate enough to catch a few moments with her while she was active, and was super happy when I saw I got some decent pictures of her to use as reference. As a wildlife artist, I couldn’t resist painting her.

    My focus in art has always been orchids. My wife and I have been hobbyist Orchid growers for over twenty years. One of the things we love most about Costa Rica is the amount of orchids you can find clinging to the trees everywhere you go. We certainly don’t have that here in Canada! There are huge clumps of Epidendrum orchids in bloom on the big tree at the restaurant, so thats where I decided to painted Destiny.

    After our second trip to Tulemar, I have more great memories of another week in paradise. It has become more than just a vacation, it was like going to visit family. I cant get over how absolutely amazing everyone at Tulemar is. Sloth-wise, Pocahontas and Simon were the stars this time, almost within reach low in the branches and posing for the paparazzi (me). I have only been back home a few days and am already so inspired to start my next piece!

    I paint watercolour on paper, 22 x30”- when I am not busy tattooing at my tattoo shop/art studio in Montreal, Quebec. “Destiny” took me roughly four months to paint, or around eighty hours. I loved every second of it.

    Thank you Tulemar, hope to come home soon!

  • Tulemar Guest Spotlight: The Frahm Family

    Nothing makes us happier than when a family chooses to make lifelong memories together right here at Tulemar. What an honor! That’s why we were thrilled when we met the Frahm family.

    Jill and Geoff, along with their two girls Emmy (age 9) & Addy (age 11), came to visit us all the way from Loveland, Colorado. They had never been to Costa Rica before, but it was on their bucket list and after a lot of research they realized it was the perfect destination for the whole family.

    Jill loves to put in the time to research their vacations, and once they decided on Costa Rica she was able to narrow down exactly what she needed: a place that is family friendly, has a great beach, and has lots of amenities and wildlife. Luckily for all parties involved, Tulemar checks all those boxes!

    The Frahms chose one of our original Tulemar bungalows. Jill said that the ocean and sunset views were spectacular, and the bungalow was absolutely perfect for a family of 4 (we couldn’t agree more, Jill!).

    We could continue to tell you how wonderful their vacation was, but we think you’d prefer to hear it straight from the mouths of sweet Emmy and Addy:

    Tulemar: We are so happy to hear you loved your vacation! How did you react when your parents told you you were going to Costa Rica?

    Addy: I was really, really, really excited and I couldn’t wait!

    Emmy: I was really excited and happy that we were going to go!

    T: We certainly hope that we lived up to all your expectations! What was your favorite thing about visiting Costa Rica?

    A:  I loved all of the nature; flowers and animals! Snorkeling was awesome.

    E: I have two favorite things: snorkeling and seeing all of the interesting animals at Tulemar!

    T: Oooo, snorkeling! How fun! That’s something you can do at the beach, or in the pool. Which did you like best: The Tulemar Pools or Beach?

    A & E: The beach! We like the hermit crabs and the boogie boards. But we liked the waterfall at the family pool, too.

    T: Those are some of our favorite things too! What was your favorite activity that you did on your vacation?

    A & E: Boogie boarding and zip lining!

    T: How fun. I bet you got to see a lot of wildlife while you were zip lining! How many animals did you see on your trip?

    E: We lost track! A million?

    A: Sloths, white-faced monkeys, iguanas, geckos, macaws, toucans, turtles, dolphins, fish…

    T: That’s a lot! What was your favorite animal that you saw?

    A: Baby squirrel monkeys and dolphins!

    E: I have two, okay 3! Sea turtles in the ocean that we saw on our catamaran cruise, hermit crabs on the beach, and the sloths everywhere!

    T: Okay, lets talk food! What was the best thing you ate in Costa Rica?

    A: We got room service from Tule Cafe one morning for breakfast and the vanilla pancakes were my favorite!

    E: Yep the pancakes and bacon!

    T: You girls seem like you have good taste! Pancakes via room service? We are all about that! What was the funniest thing to happen on your trip?

    A: The funny kissing sound the geckos make at night when they’re eating bugs or talking to each other.

    E: The mommy monkey with her baby that jumped right over my head at the national park!

    T: Wow! What awesome memories! What was the coolest thing about Tulemar?

    A: How connected to nature we were and the free boogie boards!

    E: Tons of animals right outside our bungalow.

    T: And what five words would you use to describe your vacation?

    A: Thrilling, blissful, amazing, different, green.

    E: Amazing, beautiful, wildlife, stay-there-forever, hot.

    T: Those are awesome words… We may need to put you to work in our marketing department! If your friend was going to visit Costa Rica, what would you be sure she knew before she left?

    A: The moving shells on the beach are little crabs, and if you don’t see any shells on the beach just grab goggles and dive a little bit in the ocean and they’re everywhere! Also the big grey fuzzy blobs in the trees are sloths!

    E: There’s tons of wildlife, you’re going to have a lot of fun, and it’s hot! Do the snorkel tour with Sunset Sails…we saw turtles and dolphins! And go zip lining.

    T: GREAT tips! Lastly, how is Costa Rica different than where you live?

    A: There’s more variety of plants, more hills, and you have to use lots of sunscreen, it’s hot!

    E: It’s hotter than Colorado, more exotic animals, cool plants, food is different…in a good way.

    There you have it, folks. Book your snorkel tour, pack your sunscreen, bring your camera, and head on down to make some memories of your own. We are waiting for you.

    Pura Vida,
