Hike, admire and explore on our Rio Celeste Hiking & Waterfall Tour. This full-day excursion from Guanacaste includes return transfers from your hotel, entry to Tenorio Volcano National Park, a guided three-hour hike, a visit to the majestic waterfall, and lunch at a local Costa Rican restaurant.
Rio Celeste, also known as Blue River and Heavenly River, is a natural phenomenon and one of Costa Rica’s best-kept secrets. Its turquoise waters, the result of a river and creek merging, are bluer than blue, so it is no surprise that they attract photography enthusiasts and intrepid travellers from all over the world.
As you hike along the banks of the Rio Celeste through lush, tropical rainforests, you’ll encounter various plant, bird, and animal species that you can only find in this part of Costa Rica. You’ll stop off at Laguna Azul to admire its magical blue waters, cross a suspended bridge, and pass by the Borbollones, part of the river that bubbles with hot springs. Finally, you’ll make your way to the Rio Celeste Waterfall, a highlight of any trip to Guanacaste.
After capturing your favourite shots on film, you’ll continue your Costa Rica hiking tour to Tenideros, where the Buenavista River meets the Sour Creek and creates the exotic blue waters of Rio Celeste, before transferring back to your hotel. Our Rio Celeste Hiking & Waterfall Tour is one of the best attractions in Guanacaste, so why not book your space today.
