Guestbook comments from the manager

It was unanimous among our family of 7- Tulemar sets the bar high for vacation destinations. We loved everything from the quiet picturesque surroundings,attentive service and of course the incredible Nido de Gansos. We had a beautiful pool to enjoy besides the beach. Tulemar is truly like living inside a zoo- it's an experience in itself to sit and witness all the wildlife in it's natural habitat. The locals are kind, inviting and ready to share their beautiful country with visitors.

We enjoyed several excursions but mostly loved hanging out at the beautiful beach with a drink. Anything you want or need is done for you. Service here is by far the best I have seen. The restaurants are very good and a quick walk outside the main gate. There is also a restaurant in Tulemar as well as food service at the main pool and beach. It was really hard to leave. This is definitely a place we will visit again.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed in a fantastic villa called Nido de Gansos in Tulemar last October. The property is beautiful. The amazing swimming pool off of the second floor had great ocean views. A sloth lived in a tree by our villa and we could see it every day. Monkeys were all around our villa and gave us lots of entertainment. We would walk to the beach and could also see monkeys and sloths and iguanas. If we couldn't find anything, the staff would always help us to locate an animal for us to view. Ashley our concierge went out of her way to help our family. My wife and I went deep sea fishing and caught a lot of fish. I wanted to bring it back home to Arizona and Ashley researched the rules about bringing fish on the plane. She also had helped us with getting an ice chest and ice blocks to get the fish home. She was very helpful with planning activities for us to do during our stay. Dave was also very helpful with places to eat and see. We will definitely go back to Tulemar. You never have to leave the property if you do not want to. Everything is right there and it is paradise!

Owner's Response: Andy, Thank you for the great review on Nido de Gansos. It sounds like you and your family had a great time in Tulemar. I am glad that you noticed the sloth that lives in the tree next to Nido. He is very entertaining along with all of the other wild life. You are correct in that there is lots to do in Tulemar with the beach, walking trails and four swimming pools. You do not need to leave the area if you don't want to. However, we offer many excursion trips too. I am glad that we were able to assist you with taking home the fish that you caught on your fishing trip. We are looking forward to your return trip. See you soon. Pura Vida, Cindy

Amazing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We just returned home from an amazing trip to Costa Rica and we absolutely loved Tulemar and our villa Nido de Gansos! Everything about this place is fantastic. If you are thinking of going there-- you should!! You will LOVE it! The location is unbelievable beautiful! We saw tons of monkeys which my kids loved! The monkeys really were everywhere and so fun to watch them jump around and play. Our villa was beautiful - very spacious with a unbelievable view of the ocean and the surrounding landscape. We enjoyed our lunch and dinners at the restaurant and the drink / food service at the beach was also great! (Janet was fantastic and we loved seeing her at dinner every night :)) There were 4 pools and every things was easy to get to and find - we liked walking because that is when we would run into a cute group of monkeys playing in the trees but if we were ever tired and didn't feel like walking we would call for a ride and one of the drivers would be to pick us up in 2-3 minutes. The drivers were great! So nice and would even stop and point out wildlife as we were driving around. The people that work at the property really make this place so special! Everyone was so fantastic and greeted us by name when they saw us around the property. It really felt like a home away from home. We can't wait for a trip back to Tulemar. This was the best trip ever!

Nido de Gansos Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation was sublime!! Nido de Gansos is a dream vacation home on an exquisite resort. The house was spotless and all the contents and furniture were in impeccable condition. The ocean view is breathtaking. The pool will was amazing. Diego's service together with his assistants Al and Jonathan were outstanding. They were always there for anything and everything as soon as we needed it in a most gracious manner. Everything you want or need is within walking distance. The beach is wonderful and they even have a bar and grill to make it even better. Tulemar is a one of a kind place. It is definitely a must stay.

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5
From the friendly staff when you book your trip to the bartender at the beach, the staff at Tulemar are amazing! I spent 7 days with four other friends at Nido de Ganso and had the most relaxing trip ever! From the minute you are greeted by the staff at the house and walk through the door and see the most amazing view of the ocean you know you are in for a awesome trip. The pool was a place of action with the monkeys visiting each day. The amenities and detail to the property are that of a 5 star resort. The beach in Tulemar is breathtaking. The food and drinks at the beach restaurant are sooo good! If your looking for a trip to paradise, look no further!!

Our Family Trip Was Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 7 had an absolutely amazing time during our stay at Tulemar. The view from our villa was outstanding, and the staff went above and beyond to provide excellent service. The Villa was beautiful, well furnished, clean and extremely comfortable. The wildlife was spectacular. We had about 10 capuchin monkeys on our balcony one morning. We saw the Howler monkeys, iguanas, bats, and sloths. There was so much to do in the area. We really enjoyed the white water rafting trip, surf lessons, and hike through the National Park. Chris, our concierge, was extremely attentive, and made several trips to our villa to check on us and make sure that everything was as we expected it. David at the beach was quick to get us anything that we asked for, and the drivers were friendly and quick. It was so nice having our own pool but the kids also used every other pool in Tulemar. We loved this family trip!
