This all day tour introduces travelers to one of Costa Rica’s most incredible sights – the enchanting, blue-hued Río Celeste Tour 3 hr. Hike Tour. The river’s color is the result of the chemical mixture of sulfur and carbonate, which originate in the nearby Tenorio Volcano. Seeing this sky-blue river flow through a dense rainforest is an undeniably amazing experience.
As the hike continues, you’ll soon arrive at an impressive waterfall – a wonderful place to take pictures. Although it is not physically grueling, it does require solid health and stamina. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring a camera, swimsuit, and insect repellent. After that, the guide will take you through the multiple nature trails around the farm in search of sloths, monkeys, snakes, owls, birds and orchids.
