The dazzling centerpiece of the Tenorio Volcano National Park, the Rio Celeste is most famous for its shockingly bright blue color, the result of a natural reaction of volcanic sulfur and calcium carbonate, which turns the clear waters a powder-blue shade. Reached by hiking through the surrounding rainforest, there are a number of sights of interest located along the Rio Celeste, most notably the Rio Celeste Waterfall, a favorite photo spot where the river tumbles into a striking blue lagoon; the Tenideros, where two rivers merge in the Celeste and the Poza Azul, the most renowned “dye pool,” where the reaction is most noticeable.

The river?s startling color change is best viewed during the dry season (December to April), as excess rainfall can dilute the reactive chemicals leaving the waters with a less-appealing muddy hue. Four-in-one adventure in Costa Rica.

What You Can Expect

“Celeste” in Spanish means celestial, paradisaical and also the light blue color of the clear sky. Such adjectives describe perfectly the area you?ll visit on this tour. On the flanks of Tenorio Volcano National Park, this 7 km hike takes you to the point in the river where Mother Nature magically mixes the water of two crystal-clear streams, changing its color to the beautiful light-blue we call Celeste. You will continue to “las ollas” (the cooking pots), depressions on the ground full of clay with alleged therapeutic properties and the Tenorio Volcano thermal springs. The trail continues through the forest to reach the stunningly colored Rio Celeste Waterfall. All this time the surrounding rainforest is full of amazing life forms smells and sounds.
