Day 2

Tenorio Volcano - Rio Celeste Hike - (BF, Picnic-Lunch,)
Get to know one of the hidden treasures of Costa Rica: the Rio Celeste. Hardly anyone knows this beautiful place at the slopes of Tenorio Volcano, although it belongs to the Tenorio National Park. Rio Celeste, means "the sky-blue river", and owes its name to the light blue, almost turquoise, somewhat milky color, which results from a chemical reaction in a place where two rivers flow together, which have completely different chemical characteristics and by their reaction the coloring is caused. This place is calld the tingeing place and is hidden in the middle of the dense rain forest. Starting from this point the river with its almost surreal color flows through the forest, without losing its coloring at the nearby waterfall.
After breakfast, pick up at your hotel and ride to Tenorio National Park, where you will start an adventurous, gorgeous hike through the rainforest together with your English-speaking guide. Situated within the National Park, the Río Celeste winds through a verdant rainforest. In addition to the attractive color of the water, the river also has several thermal hot springs and an impressive waterfall where you will have the opportunity to take a refreshing bath! After a savory picnic lunch you will hike back towards the entrance and drive back to La Fortuna. Arrival in the afternoon around 16:00 pm.
