I had been up to Rincon de la Vieja before, and have stayed at Borinquen and Hacienda Guachipelin - but had never been to this side of the volcano. I was really impressed by the area, the peacefulness of these rural communities found below the mountain. The friendliness of the people, the amazing scenery and the clean, comfortable accommodations made this an ideal place to stay.
I stayed for three nights and would recommend that you go for at least two if you are planning to visit this beautiful area. There is so much to see and do here! I went on a horseback ride to the waterfall, a hike to the Penjamo river, tubing down the Blue River, and even hiked to the crater of Rincon de la Vieja. After a day of adventure, there was nothing better than a relaxing dip in the hot springs of the resort. This is a great destination for families as kids seemed to love the water slide and the variety of thermal pools found here. Blue River resort was truly a natural playground and I hope to visit again some day!
