Tulemar Beach Wins 11th Blue Flag Award

Costa Rica Beach Earns Blue Flag for 11 Consecutive Years

Tulemar Resort is excited to announce that our very own Tulemar Beach earned the prestigious Blue Flag award for the 11th consecutive year!

Our beautiful beach is a unique one among contenders in Costa Rica, tucked away in a small cove and hidden away, surrounded by jungle and with a freshwater stream. It’s our very own sandy paradise, and we are proud and happy to maintain it not just for our wonderful guests, but for future generations as well. It is our responsibility, and we take it very seriously.

Thanks to everyone who helped us earn this 2017 Blue Flag Award!


Created in response to the imminent dangers of beach pollution, its repercussions on public health, and the tourism industry, the Blue Flag Ecological Program has been in operation since 1996. The program measures the microbiological quality of the ocean’s water, the quality of potable water and sanitation areas (garbage management, waste and runoff treatment), environmental education, and security and administration. In order to qualify for a Blue Flag award, a beach needs to earn at least 90% across all categories.
