Trip Summary

  • Rio Celeste

    The stunning area of Rio Celeste is described by the local saying; when God finished painting the sky blue, he washed his paintbrushes in Rio Celeste. The Rio Celeste (Blue River) has a magnificent deep turquoise blue color due to a chemical reaction of volcanic minerals and a privileged location and a striking waterfall. The mystical river is set amidst lush verdant rainforests where ecological trails lead you to waterfalls, hot springs, and mud baths. Visitors can watch the waters change color from clear to an intense shade of blue where two streams merge causing the chemical reaction.
