  • Beautiful Place to Relax in Tambor

    "This was our second 2 week trip to Tambor, Costa Rica. We were 2 couples. The weather of course was absolutely beautiful. We were 2 couples and stayed in the Casita at the back of the property beside the beautiful refreshing pool. The landscaping is breathtaking! Property owner has done a fabulous job! The beach is just a 1 minute walk from the door, we enjoyed morning or late afternoon walks on the beach when the temperature and sun were a little less hot. You can walk for miles. The homeowners were there during our stay and were extremely accommodating and helpful to provide information and assistance when asked regarding contacts for tours, best places to shop for groceries, etc. We had a car which we would recommend but not a definite necessity, as you could book local excursions in Tambor which is a 5 minute walk from the property. There is also a small grocery store located in Tambor, as well as several restaurants which are all within walking distance. If you intend to consume alcohol, we strongly suggest you purchase it at the duty free shop prior to leaving the San Jose airport, as it is a lot cheaper there. Accommodations were very clean and well kept. The casita is not equipped with air conditioning, however, all rooms are equipped with ceiling fans (including the outdoor eating area) and we found this to be sufficient (at least during the month of February). The kitchen was well equipped and had all the necessities. It was a good location to go out on day trips to Montezuma, Mal Pais and Cobano. Lots of Howler monkeys and Macaws can be seen (and heard!) around the property. The property backs onto the main road used to travel from the ferry in Paquera to Malpais, Cobano and Montezuma. The only negative feature was that sometimes vehicular traffic could be a little loud early in the morning and late at night when vehicles were passing through coming or going to catch the ferry. The annual rodeo was on in Cobano during our stay which more than likely added to the volume of traffic during our stay. After a couple of nights when we got totally relaxed and into vacation mode, we seemed to tune this out! If you're looking for a very relaxing and slower paced place to stay away from the busier populated areas such as Montezuma and Malpais, this is the perfect spot! We will definitely be returning!"

  • Beautiful! Great location!

    "This was our first trip to Costa Rica - and we will be coming back very soon. The bungalow's are right on the beach. It was also walking distance to cafes and a grocery store. Anna was great - she helped us with transportation to and from the airport in Tambor. My husband surfs and he was very happy with the surf. I really enjoyed the beach to the right of the bungalows. It was more private, had some great tidal pools - like bay water. Very peaceful. Directly in front of the bungalow is where the fisherman are. You can even buy their catch right there on the beach. If you're looking for heaven on earth - this is it!"

  • 5 Years is a charm!

    "We have been vacationing at Tulemar for 5 years in a row and it never disappoints. The people are wonderful and the accommodations are exceptional. We stayed in Mot Mot this time. It has a wonderful deck with a great ocean view and lots of wildlife to enjoy. We did not cook much but it has a nice kitchen. The views are spectacular and the grounds are pristine. The beach with the bar and grill is our favorite place to hang out. We also took advantage of the walking trails. Our concierge Julien is the absolute best at taking care of our every want and need. We travel a lot and there is no comparison to Tulemar’s service. They go above and beyond to make sure that your stay is perfect. That is why we keep coming back. See you soon Tulemar. Pura Vida!"
