Borinquen Mountain Resort & Spa Review

The spacious villas on this 4,856-hectare (12,000-acre) ranch are the most upscale—and expensive—accommodations in the area, but the room rate includes access to their hot springs and mud baths. The villas, overlooking lawns shaded by tropical trees on the volcano's windy west slope, have sloping wooden ceilings, large porches, and plenty of amenities. Elegant deluxe bungalows have king-size canopy beds. Though 90 minutes from the park entrance, the ranch holds most of the same natural attractions, including three waterfalls and patches of forest with monkeys, parrots, deer, and other wildlife. Along with volcanic mud baths and hot springs, the spa has a wooden sauna heated by steam from a fumarole. Sunset views from the large pool are usually spectacular. Activities include hiking, horseback riding, ATV trips, a canopy tour, and a trip to the park in a Land Rover followed by a hike. The rooms are separated from the restaurant and spa by steep climbs, but the staff can transport you in a golf cart.
