COSTA RICA: 5 MUST SEES

RIO CELESTE RIVER: Hidden within the cloud forests of Tenorio National Park, the magnificent bright blue Rio Celeste Waterfall will take your breath away.   Local legend says that the Rio Celeste’s blue is a result of God washing his paintbrushes there after colouring the sky. You can park your van at the entrance of the Park that has night guard.

LLANO DE CORTES WATERFALL: Scramble down a short, steep trail to reach this spectacular 12m-high, 15m-wide waterfall, which you’ll be able to hear as soon as you get out of the van. The falls drop into a tranquil pond with a white sandy beach that’s perfect for swimming and sunbathing. Go ‘backstage’ and relax on the rocks behind the waterfall curtain, or shower beneath the lukewarm waters.  There is a parking at the entrance of the waterfall that could be a nice place to spend the night.
