Río Celeste Waterfall Hike

Embark on an extraordinary family adventure with our Rio Celeste Waterfall Hike tour in La Fortuna. This enchanting journey is specially designed for families, offering an immersive experience in the splendor and breathtaking beauty of the Río Celeste Waterfall.

Prepare to be captivated as you witness the magical transformation of the Río Celeste, with its striking blue waters and ever-changing hues. Legend has it that this mesmerizing color was created when God dipped his brush into the river while painting the sky, leaving an indelible mark on Costa Rica’s natural landscape. This captivating story sets the stage for an unforgettable family tour.

Scientifically, the captivating blue color emerges when two crystal-clear rivers merge, carrying suspended minerals coated in silicon, oxygen, and aluminum. When sunlight reflects off these minerals, it creates a vivid blue spectacle that will leave a lasting impression on your family’s memories of Costa Rica.

Gear up with your hiking boots as you venture into the Tenorio Volcano National Park, embarking on a moderately strenuous hike through the lush tropical forest. While not an extreme trek, it requires a good level of fitness, with approximately three hours of hiking involved. Fear not, as your local bilingual guide will be there to assist you, pointing out the fascinating flora and fauna of Costa Rica. Keep your eyes peeled for monkeys swinging through the treetops, colorful toucans gracing the skies, and perhaps even the tracks of the elusive tapir, igniting a sense of joy and wonder in your children.

To keep your energy levels up, a delicious Costa Rican lunch is included, ensuring everyone stays fueled for the adventure ahead. Ample stops for water and rest are also provided throughout the hike, allowing you to appreciate the surroundings and catch your breath.

What families love about this tour is the abundance of wildlife and the mesmerizing blue waters of the Río Celeste.
