Finca Mei Tai – Bijagua

Bijagua is a charming small town nestled in a lush volcanic valley. The village is the perfect stop-over to visit the Rio Celeste River and Tenorio National Park. According to a local legend, the Rio Celeste became so blue after God painted the sky blue and washed his brushes in the river.
Tenorio is a dormant volcano that last erupted in 1902. The volcanic valley is, without any doubt, breathtaking. On a clear day, higher parts of the region offer panoramic views of Lake Nicaragua.
