Rio Celeste, Tenorio Volcano National Park
(4.6/5 based on 950+ 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.

  • We had bad luck with the weather, and it had rain in a day what it has not rained in throughout the year. Arriving at the Park Volcán Tenorio told us that by the same rains the River was not very blue, but also subieramos by the teñideros River and then if would be the color. The road was normal, medium difficulty. A hike through the forest where there is mud, puddles, stones... we just soaked, but we already expected. To the get to the lagoon had that give us it turned because was all flooded and were evicted by risk. We went down to the waterfall and only saw a huge torrent of water and mud, which also impressed, but wasn't what we were going to see. Overall, we pay $ 12 more 1000 colones of parking for a walk steeped in the Woods... I imagine that it must be a nice environment with Sun, but I don't think that the source of the river Urederra in the Sierra de Urbasa, in Navarra to exceed.
