Utterly beautiful, unique place. So much to do.
We LOVED our time at Borinquen. The entire space was beautifully maintained... everything from the pool, to the landscaping, to the reception area, to the bungalows. It was more than worth the price--which we felt was very reasonable. The rooms were lovely, with a hammock to enjoy the sunset. The pool was great--for adults and children alike. My husband and I loved the mud bath and the hot springs--though our 8-year old refused to go near them because of the sulfuric smell. :) Steam room was absolutely unique--built right over a natural steam vent!? The horseback ride to the waterfall followed by zip lining back to the hotel was well-priced ($60 for over 3 hours of fun, and half that price for the kiddo.), and really was not to be missed. Amazing views, horses were well behaved, even for novice riders like our son. And the zip lining was fun and really well done. Food at the restaurant was DELICIOUS. We highly recommend the baked camembert with blackberries and the hummus plate. Best tomato soup we've ever had. And so much fun wildlife! Watched monkeys from the hot springs, iguanas from the pool, scarlet macaws from our hammock. This was one of the best places we've ever stayed in Coast Rica.
