Celeste River Hike


  • Observe the mysterious color change in Rio Celeste.
  • Walk past breathtaking views of the volcanoes and Lake Nicaragua.


Tenorio National Park is home to stunning flora and fauna and with the right weather you will hopefully see a beautiful view of the volcanoes Arenal, Tenorio, and Miravalles, and the famous Lake Nicaragua. The hike covers 4.3 miles (7 kilometres) and you pass very close to Celeste Lagoon. A short walk later, you will see two beautiful rivers with crystal waters joining together to form the Celeste River (Rio Celeste). At the junction, the water mysteriously changes to a beautiful light-blue color. Thus the name, which means light-blue river. Along the path, hot volcanic smoke seeps from the ground. Rio Celeste Waterfall provides a great opportunity for amazing photos. And you will have a delicious lunch, soaking up the tranquility and beauty of the area.
