I have a directory structure like:

foo
 |__bar
     |__bin
     |   |__tmp
     |
     |__bez
         |__tmp

I need to find the tmp directory in bin/tmp, but not the one in bez/tmp. It seems to me that find only operates on the name of one directory or file at a time. Is there a command that will return me the path to the tmp directory in bin, but not the one in bez? It's a bonus if the command finds all bin/tmp folders, as there may be many in the directory tree.

Many thanks!
