TULEMAR GARDENS

Throughout the grounds of Tulemar Gardens you will see an abundance of flowers, trees, shrubs and fruits most of which are native to Costa Rica. This stunning example of Costa Rica’s lush vegetation is why this tropical paradise is known as the “Rich Coast”.

A self-guided botanical nature trail was developed exclusively for the enjoyment and learning pleasure of the guests of Tulemar. It starts at the beginning of the Beach Trail and heads down to the beach, then loops around to end at the exact same place that you began – the Beach Trail. It takes about 1 1/2 hours to walk the entire trail.

There are 43 plants described on this “loop” trail and each plant is marked with a wooden label providing you with the common name of the plant in English. In some cases, the plant has no English name so the common name in Spanish is used.

EXCLUSIVE BEACH

Tulemar Gardens’ private “Blue Flag” beach is located in a protected bay allowing guests to take advantage of the various water activities that Tulemar offers, without having to worry about dangerous undertows or riptides. As a guest at Tulemar Gardens, kayaks and snorkeling equipment are available for your exclusive use. The Beach Bar ensures that you don’t have to go far to order your favorite cocktail or satisfy the rumbling in your stomach while you relax at the beach.

DINING

Manuel Antonio boasts several excellent restaurants within walking distance or just a short drive from Casa Panorama. With a variety of menu options featuring local seafood and international cuisine, there is never a shortage of choices. If you prefer to dine in, Casa Panorama’s on-site concierge can assist you with delivery options, or arrange for a private chef to come in and prepare fabulous gourmet meals using the freshest local ingredients. However you decide, dining alfresco while enjoying our spectacular Pacific sunsets will make your stay at Casa Panorama memorable.

MARITIME ZONE

Asociation de Vecinos y Amigos de Tulemar (Association of neighbors and friends of Tulemar) is an environmental organization created by Tulemar Gardens homeowners. It dedicated to protecting and preserving the natural environment in the Tulemar Gardens locale, with focus on the Tulemar Gardens Maritime zone.

A substantial portion of Tulemar Gardens proceeds have been donated to this organization. Future proceeds will be used to support the creation of a maritime park centered in front of the Tulemar Gardens beach. The park rules are to exclude the extraction of marine life in an effort to allow for the development and viewing larger and more abundant marine animals. Initial plans call for it to begin near the new Quepos harbor and extend to Quepos point, and for it to include the primary snorkeling and diving reefs in the area. If successful
