06:00 am from San José taking the route through Bajo los Rodríguez, San Ramón where we will enjoy a delicious typical breakfast. We will continue our way until we reach the Guatuso area. Our trek through the celestial river, where we will witness an unusual natural phenomenon. This river and its rocks become celestial, due to the chemical reaction caused by the minerals that are washed in the river. These minerals are the result of the location of the river in the surroundings of the volcano tenorio and the remaining ventilations of the lowlands of the volcano. It is certainly one of the most relaxing places in the country. In the Tenorio Volcano Park the tour lasts approximately 4 hours (it is 6km round trip) in which you will visit the waterfall, the dyers, viewpoint and the lagoon. The weather is irregular, it may be hot, but it may also be rainy and maybe it will be cold, but with the walk they stay warm.
