This all-day tour introduces travelers to one of Costa Rica?s most incredible sights ? the enchanting, blue-hued R?o Celeste. The river?s color is the result of the chemical mixture of sulfur and carbonate, which originate in the nearby Tenorio Volcano. Seeing this sky-blue river flow through a dense rainforest is an undeniably amazing experience.
What You Can Expect
While on this tour, you?ll hike through both primary and secondary rainforest in the Tenorio Volcano National Park. Enjoy the trails while searching for monkeys, sloths, tropical birds and more. As the hike continues, you?ll soon arrive along the banks of the R?o Celeste. Have your camera ready, because you?re going to want it! The trail winds along the banks of the river, taking you upstream as you hike. The further upriver you travel, the deeper the color of blue in the water. You?ll eventually reach the point where this color is generated ? the confluence of the Buena Vista and Roble rivers.
As the hike continues, you?ll soon arrive at an impressive waterfall ? a wonderful place to take pictures or even swim. Once the hike is completed, you?ll be rewarded with a delicious meal.
This hike is recommended for people in good physical condition. Although it is not physically grueling, it does require solid health and stamina. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring a camera, swimsuit, and insect repellent.
