Rio Celeste National Park

The Rio Celeste is a national park in the middle of Costa Rica, it has some really blue water water, like super blue, which is well worth visiting!

To get there you just have to:- (Drive along some terrible roads for hours)

– Walk along this path

Wonderful!

We drove 3 1/2 hours from Tamarindo to get there. We paid $12 USD pp. You can rent gumboots there if you want to, we didn’t and we were fine.

Ps. you can’t swim in the water….

We then drove 5 hours to get to San Jose, it should take about 3 1/2 hours. Don’t use maps me as a GPS, its the worst………
