Overview

A legend tells that after god was done painting the sky, he washed the brushes in the river that now receive the name of Rio Celeste (Light Blue River).

This peculiar color is given by a chemical reaction that reflects the sunlight through the water, and occurs during the joining of two streams that give birth to the river, this place is known as the “Teñideros”.

Rio Celeste Rainforest Hike is one of the most beautiful and scenic rivers in Costa Rica, located in the lush rainforests of Tenorio Volcano National Park, undiscovered by mass tourism.

The park is home to an incredible biodiversity of flora and fauna, including the tapir, wild cats, monkeys, toucans and a vast variety of amphibians and reptiles.

Once at the park entry we start the hike through this primary Humid and Rainy Forest, several fauna species and exuberant flora are easily found in these ecosystem.

During this 3 hours walk we visit a magnificent waterfall, the place where the river dies with the light blue coloration, hot water springs (swimming not allowed for park’s administrative rules); fumaroles of volcanic gases, where temperatures up to 1500 °F are expelled from time to time, and the “Borbollones”, where exhaust gases at the base of the river give the appearance of boiling water.
