Rio Celeste Hike and Swim at Tenorio Volcano National Park
Arenal, Costa Rica
- National Park: Hike a four-mile rainforest trail through a pristine conservation area crowned by the 6,300-foot Tenorio Volcano. Your guide points out the magnificent flora and fauna that makes this part of Costa Rica one of the most biodiverse regions in the world.
- Rio Celeste: More than a river, more even than a natural phenomenon, this is where the celestial sphere meets the mountain's mysteries and flows into the water, magically tinting lagoons and cascading falls a heavenly sky-blue.
- Lunch and free time: Kick back with a picnic by the water featuring authentic Costa Rican cuisine wrapped in plantain leaves. Then laze in the river, walk the boulders dotting the shore, or spend some quiet moments among the flowers and trees.
About This Arenal Tour
Rio Celeste is a river and a place so mystically beautiful, with clouds hovering over the volcano and birds and butterflies flitting through the forest, that you may not want its mysteries explained. So, spoiler alert: scientific theory ahead.
