Day 14: La Fortuna – The magical blue waterfall

Today, Renata and I are taking a guided hike to see the Rio Celeste Waterfall in Tenorio Volcano National Park. The Rio Celeste Waterfall is a striking waterfall that cascades down into magical turquoise blue waters.

Apparently the magical blue colour of the water is attributed to the mixing of two non-colour tributaries: Rio Buenavista and Quebrada Agria. The point where the two tributaries mix is called El Tenidor, a surreal natural phenomena.

The uphill hiking on uneven terrain made the day hike more difficult than I thought it would be. It was totally worth it, though. We even witnessed a cute monkey, entertaining us in the trees.

After the fairly strenuous hike, we were treated to a delicious Costa Rican lunch before we headed back to our hotel.

For dinner, Renata and I headed to the Rainforest Café, to have some delicious lattes and try some Costa Rican dessert, ‘Tres Leche,’ a moist sponge cake soaked in three different types of milk. It was so good that we forgot to take a picture of it!

Tomorrow, we are canyoning, horseback riding, and swimming
