Description

Your bilingual tour guide will pick you up and drive you to Tenorio National Park.  Upon arriving at the entrance, you will start out on a 2 hour moderately difficult hike to Rio Celeste.  Along the trail you will walk through the rainforest and along the Celeste River, where you can observe one of nature’s most intriguing phenomenons.  After this beautiful site, you will continue hiking to where two brooks merge together, turning clear water into a divine hue of turquoise that makes Rio Celeste. This chemical reaction, due to the volcanic minerals, makes for an astounding sight that can only be experienced at this unique location. After hiking, you will head to another part of the river outside of the park where you will get to swim in the blue waters!!  This is where you will often see sloths and other wildlife. This hike is a fantastic opportunity for healthy exercise and unforgettable experiences in one of Costa Rica’s most unique hidden gems.

After a swim in the blue waters, you will eat a hearty Costa Rican lunch.  To end the day, we will take you to Llanos de Cortez Waterfall where you can relax and take a swim underneath the falls.
