Rio Celeste, Tenorio Volcano National Park

(4.6/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
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. By using our Tenorio Volcano National Park holiday planner, you can arrange your visit to Rio Celeste and other attractions in Tenorio Volcano National Park.
