We rented a car in La Fortuna/Arenal and drove up to Rio Celeste for the day after seeing so many amazing photos of the river. It certainly was a gorgeous sight and a nice (very muddy) hike through the national park, but we were disappointed by the seemingly new rules against getting in the water, which would have brought the... 更多
This is one of my favourite places in Costa Rica. It is a bit of a walk down to the falls and on the day I went it recently rained so the path was very muddy and slippery in places. Once you get down to the river the scenery is beautiful. If you are in the area it is a... 更多
Ok I didn't see the celestial blue due to torrential rain, but still it looked beautiful especially the waterfall. This is really hit & miss situation if the weather serves you - it will be great, if it's raining, prepare for mini-torrents forming everywhere, mud and drenching. And don't count on the colour of the river when the weather is... 更多
Super trail with some climbing, but such great views and variety. The river is beautiful. It's best to go when the weather is clear, but we went in the rain and it was still enjoyable!
We lucked out and had a sunny day to do our hike thru Tenorio National Park. I hired Alvaro from Odyssey Tours (see their separate review) and had a great time. The waterfall is beautiful and the different areas of the park are amazing - geothermal mineral water that is literally boiling, the convergence of two rivers changing color, and... 更多
Did a guided tour....didnt really need the guide for the hike, but we did get to meet his family, eat at his family restaurant for lunch and do the family coffee farm tour, so in the end glad we had the guide. Very friendly and very welcoming. Otherwise, a three star review. Location is out of the way and will... 更多
Road to get there very shaky..rocks I did it in a car but was scared......You will have to pay to park..basically someone watching your vehicle so it doesn't get broken into. They are big on you paying for a guide especially if within 2 hours of the park closing.
This was my favorite part of our trip! The hike was a bit strenuous and we were worried about the color the river because of the amount of rain that had fallen in the previous days but it was perfect and beautiful. The river and lagoon REALLY is the beautiful shade of turquoise you see. We had a great hike... 更多
Don't miss this astonishing place! Rio Celeste is quite special and you will not regret the effort to get there. The rivers blue color is not photoshopped on pictures you see and is explained at the end of the trail. It will take 1,5-2 hours one way, and you have to go back the same way as there is no... 更多
Went during the rainy season (November). Arrived in San Jose at 2:00 AM and saw that the rain was supposed to start at noon and last for 3 days. Ended up driving straight up to Rio Celeste and got there right at opening (8:00 AM). Beautiful walk down to the falls / river. It is amazing! Just as we finished... 更多
