Join us to the heart of Tenorio Volcano to discover the mistery of the minerals that produces an reaction that makes a natural color river into a marvelous light blue color; right where Buena Vista river and Roble river merge (Both rivers come from the Volcano) there is magic that turns the color of the river as a result of the different concentrations of minerals, the natural chemicals mix cause a reaction between sulfur from the volcano and calcium carbonate from the rain, making one of the most beautiful attractions in Costa Rica. On the tour we will take to the breathtaking waterfall called Brides veil which is the best part of this adventure, also we will take you to the Tenorio Volcano view point, thermos mineral hot springs and volcanic mud ponds. This adventure is waiting for you, words are not enough; the beauty of this place speaks for itself.

    Sergio a fait de cette journée un moment exceptionnel. La navette vous prend directement à votre hôtel et vous ramène le soir, tout est géré par le guide. Sergio nous a appris beaucoup de choses sur les animaux, sur l'histoire et la culture du Costa Rica avec un anglais impeccable. Il a toujours été attentif et bienveillant. Le Rio Celeste était splendide, la marche pour y aller très accessible, la pause baignade et le repas sont vraiment un plus!

    We did the Rio Celeste trip with our guide Sergio and driver, Francisco. There were 11 in our group. Several countries were represented. Sergio provided information in both Spanish and English. He did a great job! They were both excellent in taking care of everyone and making sure all were happy. The hike is a bit challenging. Due to weather we did not see the brilliant blue water. We did see a sloth, toucans and monkeys. After our hike we were taken to a soda for lunch and the food was good. The river behind this location is also blue (not on our day) and swimming is encouraged. I'm very happy we chose this company for this trip. It was a fun day.

    Realizamos un tour al volcán Tenorio y al Río Celeste con Sergio y Sebastián. Ellos fueron unos excelente guías. Nos brindaron datos históricos interesantes y fueron muy pacientes y empáticos. Estuvieron siempre pendientes de nosotros y nos acompañaron pacientemente durante todo el camino. Realmente ha sido una experiencia muy bonita realizar el tour con ustedes. Esperamos volver pronto y seguir conociendo La Fortuna con ustedes. Un abrazo desde Perú.

    Did the Rio Celeste tour with the amazing guide Raul! The waterfall was really beautiful and it was so great to be able to take a swim in the water. Raul was a great guide who always seems to smile. I really recommend!

    Carlos was a great driver, and Santiago was an amazing guide! He made sure we saw a variety of wildlife, was very knowledgeable, and extremely friendly. The hike was the right level of intensity, with several beautiful viewpoints. Would definitely recommend - we were lucky to see the waterfall when it is blue, and it was incredible!

    J’ai fait la visite du Rio céleste avec le guide Raùl ! C’était top 😁. Raùl est un guide passionné qui adore la nature et on le sent directement. Il est très gentil, il explique tout très bien. N’hésite pas à nous aider quand on n’en a besoin. J’ai passé un merveilleux moment dans la bonne humeur et les rires! Je recommande a 200% cette excursion avec jungle tour. Le personnel est super sympa. Nous avons fait un déjeuner complet et très bon dans un petit restaurant en pleine nature à côté d’une rivière. Les gens ont étaient super gentils. Le Rio céleste était bleu magnifique malgré la pluie ... La meilleure de mes visites au Costa Rica! Merci Raùl pour ce super moment !

    Super randonnée avec Raul, il s'est adapté au rythme de chacun, le tout dans la bonne humeur, les blagues et les photos, trop bien ! Le trajet en bus largement assuré par Adrian, équipe de choc ! 👍🏻 Fruit de la passion 🙂

    We had an amazing day at Rio Celeste thanks to Jungle Tours. They were very accomodating when the weather was bad to reschedule. They really wanted us to have a great experience and they also helped us organising our transfer to the Pacific Coast. Thank you and I would definitely recommend them to anyone visiting La Fortuna
