Borinquen is a fabulous resort with pristine grounds, a very friendly staff, set on an expansive (6,000 acres I was told) grounds near the Rincon La Vieja National Park. I am amazed at the quality and upkeep of the property that is so far from everything - to get there from Liberia is about 1 hour, 40 minutes of that... More

My wife and I have visited Borinquen 4 times and I am sad to say that the place is on its way downhill. It is an extremely beautiful location that I love to visit. It is also apparent that the owner has not been doing simple maintenance and that the manager is doing a poor job. Our junior suite had... More

My friend and I booked this tour through our hotel. What I liked: 1 This was our first time zip lining. The operators took their time to explain the safety features and made sure we got the help we needed to get started. It was clear the operation is well run. My friend dropped her camera pouch and one operator... More

The roads from Liberia as in all of Costa Rica are a trial. This is about an hours drive from Liberia. the cabins are well equipped and comfortable. Many birds and animals to be seen A troop of white faced monkeys was evident as well as some Howlers. the weather can be strange as there is a pretty constant cloud... More

This resort is very unique. It takes a long time to get here from Liberia as the road into the hotel is a very rough dirt road with twists and turns so if you are driving yourself you must really pay attention to the road and the signs so you don't get a flat or get lost. There are lots... More

We got lost and found this place and so glad we did. It turned out to be one of the nicest and coolest places that we reviewed. We own and operate B&C Costa Rica adventures and send people all over Costa Rica based on what we see. This place was amazing from the minute we got there, service was incredible.... More

My wife and I stayed here as part of a Costa Rica Monkey Tour. Overall, we were quite happy with the property itself. The rooms/villas were huge and generally well appointed. The grounds were stunning. We saw some capuchin monkeys as we were leaving. We also really enjoyed the Hot Springs, the mud baths, and their wonderful pool. There was... More

We stayed here three nights to be close to Rincon de la Vieja Volcano National Park. The grounds are beautiful and very well kept. We were upgraded to a deluxe bungalow and enjoyed a beautiful room. The only drawback to this was that it seemed that the deluxe bungalows were all further uphill from the resort restaurant, and pool area.... More

I was a little apprehensive to book here because of some of the bad reviews but it was a really nice little spot. The grounds are quite impressive on arrival. We had the lowest price room because it was the only one available when we booked last minute, but it was great. It was a stand alone cabin not attached... More
