The resort is located about an hour NE of Liberia. The roads aren't great getting up there, but not horrible either. We rented a small car and made it fine. It is extremely mountainous, hence the name, and some areas of the drive are very steep and narrow. Be very careful around corners and on narrow bridges. The resort itself is beautiful. Each guest has their own bungalow, or suite and they overlook the valley. If you stay in the jr suites, just know that it is quite a steep hike up, but you can also request a ride from the golf carts that are always around. If you are into physical fitness, I recommend walking/running the few dirt roads in the area. You will get a great workout. The tours were great. We did 2, ziplining and a hike to the waterfalls. Both were on horseback. The guides were also great. Very friendly and knowledgeable. If you go, request Marco. He was very funny and kept us thoroughly enteretained. I think the only negative would be the lack of restaurants. There really is just one and then a small place to eat lunch near the pools. They definitely could have more menu choices or rotate the menu. They did allow me to order off the lunch menu twice at dinner. Some of the dinner options were kind of weird and the desserts on the dinner menu weren't good, at least in my opinion. They were lacking chocolate. I would definitely recommend Borinquen Mtn Resort. The people of Costa Rica were friendly and helpful and most spoke english.
