Whilst the north of Costa Rica still doesn’t feature much on the typical tourist trails, one of the more popular destinations in this region and the best place to start would be Rio Celeste.
Located 100 miles north-west of San Jose and sandwiched between the Arenal to the south, Tenorio Volcano National Park to the west and the Caño Negro Forest to the east, this area enjoys a proximity to many different habitats but is ultimately renowned for its famous light-blue river and waterfalls tinged so by volcanic minerals.
All year round is good, and December to April are the drier months
It's off the beaten track with the hot springs, waterfalls and rainforest of the Tenorio to enjoy not to mention within easy reach of the Arenal Volcano and the activities there
