We made this our last stop in our travels from the Caribbean to the pacific and wouldn't have done it any other way. Borinquen was stunning. The cabin we stayed at was high on the hill and required much walking but it was worth the view which is why I selected it. We loved the horse ride to the falls...

Getting here is a long trip - but well worth it The place has hot spring, vulcanic mud, 12 zip lines, and horse back riding, and lots of fun for the family!! We ate at the restaurant and had a great meal! Staff is very nice.

While friends were sweltering on the west coast beaches of Costa Rica, we had a marvelous, fun and activity-filled stay in the mountains. The cottages are large, clean, modern and each have a lovely view. We particularly recommend the suites perched high above the resort (though it's a steep walk), the views are incredible. We hiked on our own daily...

We were in Costa Rica for a wedding and were told we had to zipline while there. Borinquen Resort was a great choice. We were a group of 18, traveling together by van from our accommodations in Coco Beach for the zip line adventure and lunch at the resort. The zip lining staff was very professional and safety-conscious but still...

Apparently March is fire season in the lowlands, so our first week spent at the beach wasn't great: smoke, fires, winds, heat. We escaped to the volcano and this resort for the last two nights of our trip. It was very nice, relaxing, cooler, quiet. It looks like something from Hawaii with manicured lawns and plants. The views from the...

Yes...it is a challenging drive to get to this resort but the scenery, beauty and tranquility of the location make it worth the bumpy ride. We stayed one night as a brief change of pace from the beaches and to hike the rincon de la vieja trail. It is a 45 minute to 1 hour drive from the resort to...
