Guided tour to Rio Celeste (Tenorio National Park)

The Rio Celeste Waterfall is near the Tenorio and Miravalles Volcanoes. Once you get here, you will begin a hike through the dense, lush, tropical rainforest that surrounds the Tenorio National Park. You can go at your own pace and you will learn interesting things about the rainforest along the way. This hike takes about 1.5 to 2 hours or about 6 kilometers long (3 miles) and is considered a moderate hike. When you arrive at “Los Teñideros”, where two rivers come together, you will be amazed at the celestial turquoise blue watercolor that comes from the waterfall. This color is created when the minerals in the water (aluminum, silicon, and oxygen) are suspended in the water and refracts light from the sun so that the flow looks blue. Get your camera ready because this is the perfect place to take photos of this unforgettable Costa Rica blue waterfall!
