Combo Rio Celeste Hike and Hanging Bridges

The Rio Celeste Hike is a beautiful exploration of the Tropical Rain Forest where it is possible to see a blue waterfall and the site where the water turns into that beautiful color. Volcanic activity is seen along some parts of the river in the way of emissions of sulfur and bubbling water. We can opt for a short hike of 2 hours or a longer hike of 3 hours.

The Hanging Bridges is a beautiful nature hike in the tropical rain forest, surrounded by very lush vegetation and trees of enormous size.

Frequently asked questions about Rio Celeste

How long does the Rio Celeste hike take?

We offer 2 or 3 hours hiking and the completion of it depends on physical condition, how much wildlife we see and climatic conditions. The rain and mud makes it slower, because one has to be more cautious. 

Is the Rio Celeste always blue?

Most of the times it is, however it can be affected by the rain that suddenly occurs in the rain forest, that makes the river murky. In the dry season from December to about April we got the best chances to see the blue color. The rest of the year it gets more diluted and the blue color is lighter.

Are there a lot of animal in Rio Celeste?

Yes, but it is hard to spot them because the vegetation is thick and the trees are very tall. In my expertise of more than 20 years it is a mistake to guarantee wild life sighting because it is not a zoo and the animals travel very long distances to find their food. Sometimes seasonal fruiting trees along the way make it easy to see lots of diversity that could be quite surprising. Tour guides can ease the job of finding animals because we learn about their behavior and their sounds that give us a very good sense of direction and a lot of the times we see what most people don´t notice.
