Waterfall Rio Celeste Hiking the Rain Forest

Quick Details

Start time: 9 a.m.

Duration: 8.5 hours

Guests: 2-person minimum

Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the spectacular Rio Celeste Waterfall, known all over the world for its sky-blue waters. Explore the rainforest and meet all the animals that call it home.

Rio Celeste is formed by the confluence of two rivers, Quebrada Agria and Buena Vista, in the rainforest of Tenorio Volcano. The river gets its particular coloration from an optical effect caused by the dispersion of sunlight on the water, which has a high concentration of aluminum silicates, resulting in a sky blue color.

The legends say that the waters of the Rio Celeste Waterfall have this striking color because, when God finished painting the sky, he washed the brushes in the water of this river.

Explore the area on a two-hour, medium difficulty hike, ideal for avid hikers.

Later in the day, we visit another part of the forest, where you can enjoy beautiful flowers, poison frogs, and sloths on an easy, one-hour walk.

Your tour includes a delicious, well-deserved lunch after the hike.
