Hikers and outdoor adventure lovers beware: Costa Rica holds a beautiful secret, and it wants to be discovered by you. The **Rio Celeste at the Tenorio Volcano National Park winds its way through the green rainforest, its magical turquoise color created at the confluence of two river courses where minerals of the water meet those of the volcano and create the bright color. Hike with us to the waterfall and experience this breathtaking place up close.
According to legend, after painting the sky in blue, God washed out the brushes in a river. This river was then called Rio Celeste, which means "celeste river". You will be picked up by a driver in the lodge at 8 clock and then taken to the park. Once there, you will wander through the forest with its wet ecosystem, variety of animals and voluptuous plant world that reaches unimaginable heights. Can you see the roots proliferating over the sidewalk and stop the mud masses? Stroll along the paths that lead you through the park until you reach the rushing waterfall Rio Celeste. Take a moment to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and listen to the thunderous waters. The waterfall sprays a fine mist onto everything in its immediate vicinity. A few feet further you will find the river, deemed the most beautiful place by most visitors. Here, the water turns into the color that gives the river its name.
