The unique area surrounding Borinquen Mountain Resort brings you pristine forests and amazing views of the Rincon de la Viejo volcanic mountain range. In the distance, you can see the Pacific Ocean. For nature enthusiasts, this guided hike provides the perfect opportunity to explore Costa Rica’s bounty of natural beauty and exotic tropical wildlife.
Your tour will begin at the hotel’s reception room where you’ll be greeted by an experienced nature guide. The Resort has been opening its doors to travelers from around the world since 1999 with the intention of sharing the stunning scenic beauty of this beautiful country. Your local guide will lead you down to the paths in the forest to begin a fascinating nature walk.
You’ll be surrounded by hanging vines draped over moss covered old growth trees with giant leaves as you walk along the winding trails on the floor of the light filtered rainforest. The well-maintained paths provide a relatively easy hike still rustic enough that you’ll know you are deep within a tropical jungle.
Your guide will engage you with a wealth of interesting forest features while helping you to identify birds, animals, insects, and interesting plants you may find along your walk. Living here are three different types of monkeys, wild orchids, sloths, Toucans, iguanas, agoutis, and many other species of exotic wildlife. If you listen, you’ll hear a cacophony of sounds creating a vibrancy of life all around you that is almost palpable.
Nearby there is the Rincon de la Vieja National Park with its majestic volcano towering over the tops of the other mountains on the landscape. Nestled in northwest Guanacaste Province, this area is lightly populated preserving much of the natural beauty found here from beaches to rainforests. It is an excellent place to discover the magic of being in Costa Rica.
This leisurely 3 hours rainforest walking tour includes a bilingual nature guide and entrance to the private reserve. There is NO TRANSPORTATION provided from other hotels. Please wear enclosed walking shoes and be sure to bring your camera and binoculars as well as insect repellent.

Tour guide was cute and sweet but the walk was very tame and not worthwhile
