Rio Celeste – The Light Blue River

Rio Celeste - The Light Blue River

A unique place hidden in the middle of the rainforest. A legend tells that after God was done panting the sky, he washed the brushes in Rio Celeste.
Rio Celeste (The Light Blue River) has its name due the color of its turquoise waters produced by a chemical reaction between thermal sulfur steam that emanates from the bottom of the river and calcium carbonate entering from a small side stream. The river has several thermal hot springs and a large waterfall.
