From USD 149

In the midst of the rainforest lies one of the most spectacular rivers of Costa Rica: Rio Celeste. On your way to this amazing place, lies yet another amazing place: the "Llanos de Cortés" waterfall. This beautiful, hidden gem is located down a short, steep trail, whose cascading waters you'll be able to hear from the parking lot. The falls drop into a tranquil pond with a white sandy beach that’s perfect for swimming and sunbathing. Go "backstage" and relax on the rocks behind the waterfall curtain. Next, you'll visit “Los Teñideros,” where two streams of crystalline water merge into one; the mix between the minerals of the river and the minerals from the volcano create the famous celestial blue hue that gives the river its name. There are also hot springs where you can take a dip while experiencing this magical destination. On your descent, you will discover the spectacular Rio Celeste waterfall, whose color makes it a one-of-a-kind. The hanging bridges will bring you closer to the wonderful biodiversity of the rainforest. This is definitely an experience you will never forget!
