Create an itinerary including Cano Cristales
Called the "liquid rainbow" river, Cano Cristales draws people from all around with its clear waters and vibrant colors. Various minerals on the bottom of the river cause it to turn green, yellow, brown, black, and especially red. Most travelers embark on a four-day walking tour along the river, which passes multiple waterfalls. You can also go for a single-day tour from Macarena. Test the waters and don your aqua shoes before jumping in, as the river varies a lot in depth and the bottom is rocky. Make Cano Cristales part of your personalized La Macarena itinerary using our La Macarena driving holiday planner.
