Rio Celeste Hike
Awesome Tenorio Volcano’s Rio Celeste
Mysterious and enchanting, in the very depths of the Tenorio Volcano National Park, a chemical phenomenon transforms the water of the Buena Vista and Quebrada Agria rivers into a sky blue stream. As they blend, one of the most extraordinary and shocking optical illusions of nature appears: “Rio Celeste.” This tour explores this park, by hiking along a 4.5 mi (7km) trail through the tropical rainforest.
Our first visit to this particular park full of abundant ecological wonders will be the spectacular Rio Celeste waterfall which color makes it one of a kind. We’ll continue our hike through the jungle until arriving at “Los Teñideros,” where two streams of crystalline water come together. Also, as you walk along these paths, you might get to know some of the resident animals. Our final reward is an exquisite Costa Rican typical lunch at the end of our journey, and after that, the ride back to the hotels in La Fortuna.
