Gotta love a hotel that stirs up real opinions. Some people absolutely love Tulemar Bungalows, and some people don't. So what is not to like about a bungalow resort in a drop dead gorgeous location? Well, if you are not an animal lover you might not be too keen on a set of bungalows where monkeys and sloths cavort regularly.

Furthermore, one recent guest found out that the nocturnal creatures were not just quadrupedal when they were burglarized as they slept. Yup, even paradise has its plankton. The couple left their bungalow window open and a thief made away with money and belongings.

Despite the unfortunate, and hopefully isolated incident, everyone agrees that the bungalows Manuel Antonio National Park location is absolutely breathtaking, even the robbery victims, which says something, though we are not sure what. Moreover, the cool octagonal design of the bungalows means killer views every which way you look.

Just be prepared to deal with nature, and by nature we mean *all* kinds. This statement from a recent visitor should some it up for you:

It was a thrill to leave a banana on the porch and wait for a shy squirrel monkey to find it.

If untamed beauty isn't your thing you might want to look elsewhere, hell if that is the case you might want to skip Costa Rica all together.

We would just pack our Taser gun, to defend against the creatures of the night, of all kinds.
