When you driver from Arenal to the Rio Celeste National Park, you will embark on your 3 hour long hike through the lush rainforest with one of our naturalist guides who will point out exotic wildlife and vegetation such as birds, insects, and sometimes even monkeys and sloths!
After your transportation from Arenal to Rio Celeste, you will be amazed by the beautiful sapphire blue color, which is the result of two rivers joining together, creating a mixture of sulfur and calcium carbonate. Later on in your hike, you’ll reach an impressive waterfall– the perfect place to relax, enjoy the surrounding beauty, and take lots of pictures! To finish off your journey, enjoy a delicious Costa Rican lunch before we drive from Rio Celeste to Tamarindo or other beach locations in Guanacaste and drop you off at your new Costa Rica vacation destination.
