    What to Expect
    Starts the morning visiting a Local Farm  in a small Village called La Paz, experience how to Milking cows and know about the  normal day of a Costa Rican Farmer.

    After that, continue the tour to the Tenorio National Park, here takes place your new adventure. After some hiking, you will get to the Rio Celeste (blue river). The blue color you can see is the result of a chemical reaction between two merging rivers containing different volcanic minerals. It’s a very rare phenomenon which creates a fairy tale- like beauty. 

    The hike itself is medium tough and takes about 3 hours. It will take you to a waterfall, a lookout point and the place where the river changes colors. With the help of the guide there is a good possibility of seeing wildlife. When you finish the hike come pack to a local restaurant and enjoy a delicious food to the Costa Rican style.

    But your adventures didn't  finish here, the horse at ready to carries you to beautiful and private blue pool when you can take a chance to swim and relax, this part take almost 2 hour more.
