I’ve never seen water this blue!! Get ready for a workout!! It’s is all well worth it. You don’t get to swim in the actual lagoon as it is in the National Park and they need to preserve it. You do however get to swim in a different part of the river that is accessible to all
The hike far exceeded our expectations and the view was breathtaking - highly recommend the tour with Denny at Red Lava Tours through Viator!
Excellent service and tour. The Rio Celeste was full azur on that day. The lunch was very good. Recommanded.
The tour guides were amazing, funny, and smart. They pointed out all the little things people just walked by but are so important to the ecology of Costa Rica
Nino, our van driver, was great. He stopped to show us all the different birds, sloths, and monkeys that he could find. We had a wonderful lunch with a family at their local restaurant along the way, then went for a swim in the nearby river. It was fun to share the local culture and see one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the area!
This was amazing and this company was incredibly accommodating.
Worthy tour, good guide, wonderful lunch. Although the blue river was not as blue as in the photo. Attention ! This is the only place in the dry season in this area, where the recommendation to use a mosquito repellent was justified !
This was a great experience - great guide, beautiful location. The trail is overall a pretty easy one, but overall very pleasant. Our guide was extra great and even let us stop a few times on the way there and the way back to show us some extra things. He even found us a wild sloth while on the way back!
This tour was awesome. The initial pick-up was a bit confusing but once we were with the guide, everything went smooth. Rio Celeste is gorgeous, the hike is pretty intense for people that may not do this on a regular basis. But the entire experience makes all the work worth it.
The driver we had to and from the park was fabulous and worked hard to spot wildlife for us to see. When he did spot something, such as a sloth and toucans, he'd pull over so we could get out and take pictures. Fortunately one of the tour participants spoke Spanish quite well and was able to translate for the group since the driver didn't speak a word of English and the rest of the tour group only spoke English. The drive was the best part of the day so in the future I'd recommend an English speaking driver for the English tours. The only wildlife we saw this day was on the drive, which we all greatly enjoyed and recognize that wildlife cannot be guaranteed. On the way back to La Fortuna we also stopped at an Indigenous centre where a local elder gave us a demonstration and explanation of the crafts and their significance. The tour itself was fine. The guide's English wasn't bad much better than my Spanish, but not great. Lunch was delicious and very generous. When the guide suggests renting boots for the hike, believe him. There was so much mud on the trail that it ruined the day. We had to go quite slowly because of the quantity and depth of the mud more mud than I could have ever imagined. Otherwise, I found the hike to be on the easy side it is not a long distance hike and there were only a couple of steep inclines but some of the people who are not in great shape found it very difficult.
