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 of 01 February 2022, all waterfalls are accessible. That means you can visit: Tepezquintle, Las Gemelas, La Celestial. La Turquesa and La Pintada. The only but is that if it rained, the last two waterfalls could have a little difficult access. However, we are working hard to get everything done as soon as possible, hopefully before the summer vacation.

Most beautiful

With the most beautiful parts already given to us, like the rivers, trees, and the layout, we want to improve the project in total harmony with nature or at least as much as possible. Remember that Rome wasn’t built in one day either, and all the above: Deo Volente.

Blue Falls of Costa Rica

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.
