At Tulemar, we do coastal living right… Which makes it a no-brainer that we’d be featured in an article by Coastal Living magazine.
The article came after news broke about our TripAdvisor listing winning the award of #1 Hotel in the World. As if that news wasn’t big enough, having a feature in Coastal Living was the cherry on top of our tres leches cake!
When it comes to booking a vacation, where you stay can be just as important as where you go. Some might base their decision on a hotel’s killer swimming pool, while others are lured by the swoon-worthy spa.
But if what you’re after is overall greatness—based on feedback from millions of travelers around the world—you might want to add the off-the-beaten-path beaches of Costa Rica to your vacation bucket list. According to TripAdvisor’s annual Traveler’s Choice Awards, the one hotel that earns the most positive report card in 2019 isn’t a big-name chain in a big-time tourist destination. It’s a 33-acre “jungle resort” in the Costa Rican town of Manuel Antonio.
And we can’t help but think that—coupled with the property’s stunning accommodations—it’s the unique beauty of the setting that sets it apart. Perched on a hillside, much of the rental units are surrounded by tropical foliage and gifted with views of the Pacific. There’s a draw for wildlife enthusiasts, too: Because of its rugged location, Tulemar is also home to the Sloth Institute of Costa Rica, which aims to enhance the conservation of wild and captive sloths through research and education.
