Tulemar Resort Manuel Antonio, Costa RicaWe a sending a special thank you to Tulemar Resort for years of great work and support.

In their own words:

Tulemar is a 33 acre, gated and secure, residential resort with its own beach, located right in the heart of Manuel Antonio. We have a collection of over 45 different, unique and individual 3★, 4★, and 5★ accommodations, ranging from our rustic Bungalows to our luxurious Private Villas.

Our 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.

We are not a traditional 5★ resort, an all-inclusive or a franchised hotel (with loud music playing around the pool areas and lobby). We are continually ranked among the top three properties in Manuel Antonio by Trip Advisor based upon our service, our staff and our accommodations. We are Trip Advisor’s 2014 Winner of #1 Hotel for Families in Costa Rica, #1 in Central America and #2 in the World, but we are also perfect (and popular) for couples!

So What is Tulemar? We are “the total package” and we’d love for you to stay with us!

We encourage you to book your next stay with Tulemar. Visit their site: www.4tulemar.com

America’s most popular big little family – the Rolf’s – spent the day at Quepo Canyoning. We were honored to have them. The episode aired on July 23, 2013, on the TLC show “Little People, Big World”. Enjoy the video!

Squirrel Monkey

Here at the Quepo Canyoning Adventure Park, we see everything! We admit, we are purposefully leaving out most pictures of snakes. Yes, we do find snakes from time to time but we see them as beautiful creatures and you professional and well trained guides are always there to make sure you have a 100% safe adventure the whole time you are on our tour. Pura Vida!

A Spider Rappel

We just returned from a 10 day vacation in Manuel Antonio. We did a couple of tours during our stay but this was the only one I would recommend people do. We were a family of 4 with 2 boys ages 8 and 2. Anthony was extremely accommodating. He dropped me and my 2 year old at the base of this absolutely beautiful waterfall that we could enjoy as well as watch my husband and 8 year old rappel down. We then even moved to the next waterfall to see them do the monkey drop. We were a little nervous about whether my 8 year old would be ready for this but it was just a fabulous experience. He was all smiles at the end of it. The staff were all friendly, humorous and extremely safe. What I particularly liked is the fact that they were very patient with the young kids and didn’t try to just help them through but encouraged them to try stuff on their own even if that meant that it would go a little slower. I thought this was a fantastic way to initiate young kids into some adventure activities. The staff truly seemed to enjoy what they were doing which just set a wonderful vibe to the experience. My 8 year remarked at the end of it – ‘they actually get paid to have fun. I want this job when I grow up!’ Last but note the least – the lunch that Anthony’s wife herself cooks was the best local food that we had during our stay there. What an unexpected treat! All in all – this is a business that has its heart in the right place and it shows.
