"Celeste" in Spanish means celestial, paradisiacal and also the light blue color of the clear sky. These adjectives perfectly describe the area you will visit in this tour. On the flanks of the Tenorio Volcano National Park, this 7 km hike takes you to the point where the river Mother Nature magically mixes the water of two crystalline streams, changing its color to the beautiful blue light we call Celeste. Continue to "the pots", the depressions in the clay-filled soil with supposed therapeutic properties and the Tenorio Volcano hot springs. The trail continues through the forest until you reach the dazzling waterfall of Rio Celeste. During all this time, the surrounding jungle is full of life forms, smells and incredible sounds.
