Inspirock Rating:
4.8/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Cano Cristales and other La Macarena attractions using our handy La Macarena vacation planner.

  • It is a beautiful place where there is contact with nature and shows us some beautiful bright colors where one is left speechless by its crystal water and in addition they are creating us a culture of ecotourism and respect for the environment. It is the river of colors I've seen more beautiful in Colombia and it is said that world.

  • We were fascinated with the visit of two nights and three days, despite the fact that it rained us one day, the river is wonderful and the environment has a special landscape. We travel with the company crystals Adventure Tour, very good service, we highlight that they have promoted and hire local residents associations, enthusiasts played us two boys from a group of local guides very and worried about caring for the Park. We felt very safe and well looked after, the flight was Bogotá - la Macarena, we see no sense in stopping in Villavicencio. The package covers all the food that is fair, good accommodation in a House with small apartments, delicious walks and the unspeakable River. No doubt it must be repeated and it is clear that there is more travel options and you have to ask for the five-day tour. The River should visit in the second half, for the first half are offered opportunities for sport fishing in another River - the Guayabero - and bird watching. Given the good organization of national parks and operators, one going in small groups of less than 8 people and occasionally meets another group or maximum two groups, allowing a great enjoyment of this jewel without riots.

  • I was there in 2008 .why you don't the exact location in the map?. You first need to take a boat from the river after this you can take a bicycle or walk but it takes some time ,the water is pure and you can drink macarena jungles used to be farc stronghold and still has probably significant fighting around.
