Rio celeste tour
This all day tour introduces you to one of Costa Rica’s most incredible sights—the enchanting, blue-hued thermal river called Rio Celeste (“Light Blue River”). The river’s color is the result of the chemical mixture of sulfur and carbonate, which originate in the nearby Volcano. Seeing this sky-blue river flow through a dense rainforest is simply an amazing experience.
The hiking trail winds along the banks of the Rio Celeste River, taking you upstream as you hike. The further up-river you travel, the deeper the color of blue in the water. You’ll be hiking through a primary and secondary rainforest that is alive with beautiful vegetation and animal species, so have your camera ready. You eventually arrive at natural hot springs and an impressive waterfall—a wonderful place to take pictures, snack, and even swim…before you head back.
