Tenorio Volcano and Río Celeste Costa Rica
The Tenorio and Miravalles volcanic area is located 30 miles (50 km) from the town of Liberia in the northern highlands of Costa Rica.
Although both volcanoes are considered dormant, there is still a great deal of geologic activity within this locale: geysers shoot water into the air and hot springs bubble up from below ground. Even better - and much more famous - is the Río Celeste, a river whose blue-tinted waters are the result of a chemical mixture produced by the Tenorio Volcano. Exploration of the Tenorio Volcano National Park is rewarding, as it hosts rivers and waterfalls amidst a dense forest setting.
These forests provide a unique habitat for animals such as ocelots and jaguars and can be toured on either foot or horseback.
