Administrative Fees and rules at Property and Home Owners Association Policies:
Tulemar Gardens gated community has many different accommodation options and privately owned properties within its’ gates. For this reason, we have a Home Owners Association, which includes the hotel and private homes. The Association charges a fee of $10.00 a person to use the roads and private beach for any event. This fee is to clean the beach on the wedding day, have security present and roads free for use for the wedding guests. As well, electricity, restrooms and running water on the beach for the convenience of your guests.
The HOA also has set rules that events on the exclusive beach cannot happen on Saturdays and Sundays during the months of December-April.
May-November Saturday and Sunday events are available.
The Association also has a noise ordinance rule that weddings and any events cannot last longer than 10pm. This means no amplified music played after this hour.
In order to host your wedding at Tulemar Beach, at minimum, 51% of your guests must be staying on property, within Tulemar Gardens.
Wedding Coordination Services
We do have a Buena Vista Luxury Villas Wedding Specialist that will help with all your reservations, booking of tours for your group, book spa services and transportation of guests from the local or international airport to the resort. However an actual wedding planner is not only suggested but required. In order for the beach to be reserved through the HOA they require a professional to be hired to oversee all the details of your event. This is in your favor as planning a wedding in the Jungle, ocean side and in a foreign country, truly should be in the hands of a professional. At Buena Vista Villas and Tulemar we prefer to work with the fabulous ladies at Tropical Occasions. They were the company that planned the first wedding at our property over 13 years ago and have since then planned hundreds more. They have been in business longer than any other company in Costa Rica and have offices five minutes for our property. You are welcome to choose another planner, we have personally just had a great working relationship with them. Please see our testimonials page to see comments from past brides and grooms who have had their wedding at our property with the help of Tropical Occasions.
Tropical Occasions or whomever you should chose will be able to get you set up with many services offered in Costa Rica when it comes to weddings. We have wonderful photographers, florists, entertainment, rentals, bakers and many more services available for your wedding.
