Tulemar Bungalows provide the real Tico experience. Stunning vistas of the Pacific ocean from the infinity pool. Attentive staff who can arrange anything; solve any problem. Perfect for families; the staff provide shuttles to and from the beach and accommodations if little legs cannot make it up the hill.
