Tenorio Volcano National Park
Flora and fauna
To get to Rio Celeste it is about a one hour bus trip from the town of Guatuso.
By car, get to the town of Bijagua. At north end of the town you will find the road up to the park entrance on the right (if driving north). It is a rocky unpaved road so 4 wheel drive is necessary. You can also park at the bottom and hike up. It is about 7km to the park entrance.
There is a $12 entry fee to the park
Minerals from the volcano dye the river a magical blue colour, there is a waterfall, thermal activity and bubbling volcanic gases also in the river. After heavy rain the river loses it´s blue colour due to excessive water.
You can camp at the entrance of the park for $6 per night. Cabins at the park entrance are available for $40 per night (April 2008). There is also accommodation further down the road.
