Blue rivers, like the ones found by the Blue River Resort & Hot Springs are one of Costa Rica’s premier attractions. There are many rivers in the world with the “blue” in the name. However, only Costa Rica’s blue rivers can boast truly breathtaking blue color.
Here, on the north side of the Ricon de la Vieja volcano, there are two wondrous blue rivers. The first one, Rio Azul flows across the road from Blue River Resort & Hot Springs, where guests can take a short walk into the rainforest for a swim in this Costa Rica blue river. The wilderness jungle is pristine and located just an hour drive from Liberia, Costa Rica’s travel hub for tourism. From Guanacaste’s beach resorts book the one day tours, to this blue river for Water Tubing Adventure and the hike and swim to Cathedral Waterfalls.
The other spectacular Costa Rica blue river is Rio Penjamo, located a short distance from the hotel. Our day-tours, Blue River & Grand Waterfalls Eco-adventure, take place near this unforgettable blue river.
