The Río Celeste National Park is a beautiful 1.5-hour scenic drive
from the Arenal Volcano through rural Costa Rica. The Río Celeste National Park is near the Tenorio and Miravalles Volcanoes and is becoming an increasingly popular area to visit in Costa Rica.
Once we arrive to the Río Celeste National Park, you may use
the facilities to get ready and look at the information booth provided by the Río Celeste National Park. We will then begin a hike through the dense, lush, tropical rainforest that surrounds the Río Celeste National Park. The hike is approximately 3-miles long and considered intermediate.
You and your naturalist guide go at your own pace and you'll
learn interesting things about the rainforest along the way. We then arrive to Los Teñíderos where two rivers come together to form the celestial, turquoise blue water color that gives the waterfall its name Celeste.
We'll return, walking back through the Rio Celeste National Park to the Ollas -- or mud baths -- and take a moment to relax in the natural hot springs.
For the grand finale, we then walk-on further to see the spectacular Río Celeste waterfall - the perfect place to take photos.
We finish off with a delicious lunch at a local restaurant and then head back to La Fortuna.
