Volcano heated hot springs and mud baths, beautifully appointed rooms. The volcanic water is over 212 F as it emerges thus the boiling. But down stream it mixes with cold rain water and you can swim. This recently rebuilt, renewed, and reopened resort is called Borinquen Mountain Resort & Spa and they have 3 giant round jacuzzis you can sit in. The hotest was 110 degrees Fahrenheit. Also a steam sauna, regular swimming pool with infinity views and a swim up bar. Massages, mud baths, facials, pedicures. Perfect romantic jungle get away. Excellent service from Bernie and Maddelyn poolside. European great quality food. Their chef is creative and outstanding. Even for us vegitarians. Also the great hiking and eco/biology tours with Oscar were so much fun. And well trained service people (Servers Alfredo, Maddelyn, and sommelier Hector) were eager to make every dream come true. True story: I asked for a Bombay Sapphire martini. They only had Tanqueray (delicious). But overnight they bought a bottle of Bombay Gin for me so the next night I could have what I wanted. Alex at the front desk took care of our every need and even a few we did not know to ask for. Staff knew our names and more than anticipated our needs and desires. Really outstanding. Very romantic getaway. Off the paved roads but sooo worth it. (They can arrange a shuttle or car if needed) I highly recommend it. Oh, and the volcano is beautiful too. 🙂

Hard to get to, but pleasant once there. Wonderful staff, very good food, and lots of birds. Unsettling wind at night.
