Rio Celeste & Sloth Reserve – A Top Costa Rica destination

From: $190.00



Located within the Tenorio Volcano National Park, the Río Celeste or light blue river is not only a beautiful place, but it also offers a unique experience you will not have in any other part of the world.

Legend has it that after painting the sky, God washed his brushes in this river, as its color is as bright and beautiful as the sky itself.  But the truth is that the electric light blue color of the river that “magically” turns this color in a specific spot is a result of a geological and geomorphology phenomena. Your private expert guide will explain you all the scientific facts that explain this outstanding nature´s marvel.

Our 2 hrs hike will take us first to the impressive 98 ft waterfall where you will be able to take the hero shots that characterizes this Top Costa Rica destination. In a clear day we will also be able to see the magnificent Tenorio Volcano and its 5 inactive cones. And, last but not least, the path will take us to the “Teñideros” where we will be able to see the exact point where the Buena Vista River and the Agria Ravine end and meet each other, being the exact same point where the water turns into its amazing light blue color.

After visiting the amazing National Park, our Top Costa Rica destination tour continues, taking us to “Finca Verde”. This private family owned protected area will welcome us with a delicious Costa Rican lunch followed by a relaxing hike through their sloth reserve, a butterfly garden, spot some famous red-eyed frogs, hummingbirds, toucans, among others.
