Rio Celeste National Park

Our journey begins with an early morning scenic drive through rural Costa Rica to Tenorio Volcano National Park. From there, we’ll begin our 4-hour intermediate hike (approximately 7km) through the surrounding tropical rainforest. We then arrive at “Los Teñíderos” where two rivers come together to create the celestial turquoise blue water color giving the river its name. We will hike to the spectacular Río Celeste waterfall – the perfect place to take photos – and then hike our way back to the start of the trail.
