Stand Out From the Crowd With Our Elevated Rio Celeste Tour

It Can Be Tough to Find a Tour That Sets Itself Apart When Everybody Offers the Same Tours. That’s Where We Come In.

As a luxury travel advisor, you’re always on the lookout for unique experiences that will leave your clients in awe. 

But when it comes to tours in the Arenal region, we know it can be difficult to find something that stands out from the crowd. Many companies offer the same standard tours, leaving your clients wanting something more exclusive and luxurious.

At Costa Rican Trails, we understand this issue all too well. That’s why we’ve gone above and beyond to create our Rio Celeste Tour. A truly extraordinary experience that will take your clients deep into the heart of one of Costa Rica’s most magnificent natural wonders.

“We know that your clients deserve the best.”

Pedro Alfaro, Commercial Department

Located in the Tenorio Volcano National Park, the Rio Celeste is a sky-blue river that seems to defy the laws of nature. The river’s unique color is the result of a natural chemical reaction that occurs when the Buena Vista and Roble rivers merge.

“The Rio Celeste is one of the most captivating and mysterious natural wonders in the world.”

Alexa Garcia, Commercial Department

Our tour begins with a 7 km hike through the lush tropical rainforest, where your clients can observe Costa Rica’s incredible flora and fauna up close. The hike is approximately 4 hours long and is led by our Naturalist Guide, who will share their extensive knowledge of the park’s ecology and history.

As you hike deeper into the rainforest, your guests will soon hear the roar of the Rio Celeste waterfall. 

This magnificent cascade plunges more than 200 feet into a pool of turquoise water, creating a stunning sight that will take your client’s breath away.

“The color of the water is truly unique. It's no wonder that the Rio Celeste is often referred to as one of Costa Rica's hidden gems.”

Pedro Alfaro, Commercial Department

After taking in the beauty of the waterfall, the journey continues towards Los Teñideros, the site where the Buena Vista and Roble rivers merge. Here, your clients will witness the magic of the natural chemical reaction that transforms the river into a sky-blue wonderland. Spectacular.

Your clients can observe the chemical reaction as it’s happening.

At the end of the hike, your guests will be treated to an exquisite Costa Rican lunch featuring traditional dishes made with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.

“It's the perfect way to refuel after a day of hiking and exploring.”

Alexa Garcia, Commercial Department
