The Rio Celeste Waterfall Hike is classified as being of moderate difficulty. It has duration of approximately 5 hours; trails are well marked so it is easy to do as a self-guided adventure.
The always green forest is made up of both montane rainforest and cloud forest; palms, heliconias, ferns, orchids and bromeliads dominate the forest floor. You’ll also find a rich diversity of trees that provide nutrition for the endangered tapirs that live in the National Park.
Río Celeste, or Celeste River in English, is named such for its peculiar turquoise color that makes the river one of the principal tourist attractions not only in the National Park, but in Costa Rica as a whole.
On the hike you can visit:
· A location known as Los Teñideros which roughly translates into English (there is no exact equivalent for it in the language) to ‘where the water dyes or changes color’.
· Nearby you can visit another location known as Los Hervideros or Borbollones. This is a site with natural hot springs where the water can reach between 31 and 94 degrees Celsius (88 to 201 degrees Fahrenheit).
· During its descent from the Tenorio Volcano the water forms a lagoon called Laguna Azul or Blue Lagoon. This is where you can best appreciate the intense celestial blue color of the water.
· After the Lagoon the course of the river continues descending to form the Río Celeste Waterfall.
· A paradise for bird lovers! Over half of all the bird species in Costa Rica call Tenorio National Park/Río Celeste home.
