The Río Celeste is one of Costa Rica’s most spectacular rivers. Located in the northern reaches of the country, this river’s light blue color – the result of sulphur and calcium carbonate mixing – has attracted the attention of locals and foreigners alike, earning it a unique place in Costa Rica’s already diverse set of natural wonders.
Highway 6 bisects two volcanic national parks-Tenorio Volcano National Park (Volcan Tenorio) to the east and Miravalles Volcano (Volcan Miravalles) to the west-en route to Bijagua. The rugged volcanic landscape is also home to a vibrant dry tropical forest surrounding the lava monuments at their base.
This expedition at the Buena Vista Lodge allows tour members to enjoy canopy tours and horseback rides, hanging bridges and hot springs all in one day. Oh right and then there is that 400-meter waterslide through the forest. Rated 7.0/10 by visitors
The green hillsides of Monteverde are a welcome contrast to the expansive, semi-dry scenery of the Pacific lowlands. It is here – at the Selvatura Private Reserve – that your tour will unfold. Rated 7.5/10 by visitors
Arenal is one of Costa Rica’s greatest natural wonders. It hosts both the country’s most active (and picture-perfect) volcano and its largest lake. The mountains here are covered with vibrant rainforests and the animal/plant diversity is plentiful. For this reason, any trip to Costa Rica is – in many ways – incomplete without a visit to Arenal.
