My husband and I just visited Tulemar and stayed for 7 nights for our honeymoon. It was PERFECT! It was the perfect place to get a mixture of relaxation (laying by the beach, or by one of the many pools on the property) and still had access to activities such as zip-lining, horseback riding, and jet skiing. The staff at...

The capuchin monkeys came out to eat around 5:30am, using the deck as a path to get to the other trees. They entertained us by checking out things on...
