Rio Celeste Hideaway - Bijagua

Rio Celeste Hideaway - Bijagua

Bijagua is a small village near the river Rio Celeste and the Tenorio National Park. The Rio Celeste owes its name to the intense blue colour of the water, caused by the minerals sulphate and calcium carbonate.Tenorio is a dormant volcano that last erupted in 1902. The area around the valley is beautiful and from the higher parts you can see Lake Nicaragua on a clear day. In Bijagua you stay in Rio Celeste Hideaway, where you have beautiful views and great food!

Visit Tenorio National Park on your own and hike to the Rio Celeste waterfall. Upstream the blue colour of the river becomes more intense. You can also walk over suspension bridges in the rainforest or make a so-called floating trip on the river Corobici where you will encounter monkeys, crocodiles and iguanas.


Tip: Coming from the direction Sarapiqui? Turn right on the main road in the direction of Muelle San Carlos, where you will stop at ‘Centro Turistico Las Iguanas’. Here you will find a bridge where on both sides often dozens of iguanas are sunbathing in the treetops. A nice place to stretch your legs!

We recommend a visit to Frogs Paradise to lovers of frogs. A small-scale and local project where Uncle Miguel will show you the most beautiful frogs!
