One-day tour from Arenal to Hiking To Celeste River
We leave at 7:00 a.m. from La Fortuna. After a typical breakfast in route to Rio Celeste, we’ll arrive at the Tenorio Volcano National Park, where we’ll begin our 7 k.m hike (approximately 4 hours) through the tropical rain forest. We’ll arrive at “Los Teñíderos” of the Rio Celeste, the site where two streams of crystalline water come together and form the heavenly color blue that gives the river its name. We’ll return through trails, rich with ecological wonders, that lead us to the “OLLAS” — openings in the earth where we can excavate healing muds, take a mud bath, and a dip in the natural hot springs all while observing the attractions of Tenorio Volcano.
We’ll continue our hike through the jungle to seek out the volcano’s furnace vents that expel gases of extremely high temperatures. On our descent, we will get to see the spectacular Rio Celeste waterfall whose color makes it one of a kind. Our final reward is an exquisite lunch at the end of our journey.
