What wonders await a pair of lovebirds looking to tie the knot in this picture-perfect corner of the world? Let’s find out!


The accommodations in Tulemar simply can’t be beaten. Whether you want an intimate elopement for just the two of you or are planning a much larger wedding, Tulemar offers what you need.

Instead of rooms all huddled together like a hotel, Tulemar consists of more than 50 unique vacation homes scattered throughout the property. These range in size from cozy one-bedroom bungalows to grandiose villas that can accommodate up to 28 guests.

Each property has its own decorating scheme, but one thing is for certain— luxury and beauty are the names of the game. Lots of wood and natural materials are used in construction to make the luxury properties feel more like they are a part of the jungle.

The Private Beach

A big attraction for Tulemar Resort is the gorgeous expanse of sandy beach. Again and again, guests cite the beach as a big reason they return to the resort year after year. Comfortable beach loungers and umbrellas speckle the beach and attendants are on hand to provide beach towels and general assistance.

Guests can sign for food and drink so they can enjoy service right on the beach without having to bring cash. Go for a swim or enjoy the complimentary sea kayaks and boogie boards for a more active day.

For weddings, the large expanse of beach is nice to avoid the crowds of Manuel Antonio. Host your ceremony tucked under the trees at the beach and pose for stunning photographs in front of the setting sun.

Getting to the beach from any of the accommodations is easy. You can simply walk and enjoy a peaceful stroll through the jungle grounds. There are also a couple of hiking trails on the property that lead to the beach. Additionally, you can call for a complimentary shuttle to take you if you’d rather get there quicker!


For a private experience you can request a private chef come to your villa and prepare a tasty meal chock full of fresh, local flavors. Some people love cooking as a way to unwind, but few people appreciate the grocery shopping step. If you want to cook during your stay, simply send the folks at Tulemar your grocery list and they’ll stock your fridge for you!

There are also 3 restaurants with a delectable array of flavors.
