Rio Celeste, Tenorio Volcano National Park

Trek into the rainforest and observe the colorful waters of Rio Celeste. Located at the meeting point of two rivers, and near a dramatic waterfall, the water is colored by the special minerals found in the rocks and riverbed, creating an excellent scene to admire and photograph. Unfortunately, you can no longer swim in the vibrant waters, but the hike through the jungle and the chance to see the natural phenomenon make the experience worthwhile. Be sure to bring sturdy boots for the trail, and don’t forget your camera.

  • It is very nice but should take into account that trails are still with mud and stones in some sectors, so you should wear appropriate shoes.

  • It is worth taking the time to make the walk through the Park, see different animals by the paths and get to see the waterfall, the tenidero and others, it is a beautiful place to visit.
