Ready for your most incredible blue waterfall experience in Costa Rica?

We are happy to introduce our second project: Blue Falls of Costa Rica – Nature as perfect as it can get and, indeed, the mother of all blue rivers in Costa Rica.

Blue Falls of Costa Rica - Las Gemelas

As per the 1st of February 2021, we added an extra blue waterfall: the Tepezquintle. It is a fifteen minutes hike over a jungle trail and through a blue water canyon. A mind-blowing experience. Still for the same price. And La Celestial, La Turquesa and La Pintada are also accessible as per 01 December 2021.

Most beautiful

With the most beautiful parts already given to us, like the rivers, trees, and the layout, we just want to improve the project in full harmony with nature or at least as much as possible. Just remember that, as they say in Holland: Aachen and Köln were not built in one day either. And all the above: Deo Volente.

Why is the river is Blue?

Why is the river blue? Well, it is optical. The water contains a mineral called aluminum sulfate that is bigger than average. And when the light (from the sun) shines on it, the water reflects the blue color. Read the study from the University of Costa Rica here.

Hereunder you will find another two astonishing videos made by our friends from Australia. The first video is a highlight, and the second one is the full version.
