Visiting Rio Celeste Waterfall in Costa Rica

Author: Sam Opp

Sometimes the places we see highlighted online don’t live up to the hype. Rio Celeste is absolutely worth the visit.

 Rio Celeste is located in the Tenorio Volcano National Park, so you are essentially going to the National Park

The hike to the Rio Celeste waterfall is about 2 miles out and back. The hike is easy to moderate. It is point 1 on the map called Catarata. 

While enjoying the trail, make sure to keep your eyes open for wildlife. During our hike, we spotted tons of wildlife.

Once you reach Rio Celeste, you will see the epic staircase of 200+ looking down.
