Volcanic minerals sky painted a river in Costa Rica.
Nancy De Lemos Rio Celeste (Costa Rica), October 26 .- The legend says that after finishing painting the sky God wash your brushes in this river, but in reality Rio Celeste, in northern Costa Rica, it is named no generosity metaphorical, but the more objective description of its waters.
His incomparable blue, the same shade as the sky, comes straight from, final fantasy 14 gil, the bowels of the Tenorio Volcano, located in the National Park of the same name, which is without doubt one of the best kept natural treasures of Costa Rica.
The combination of colloidal silica, copper sulfate, calcium carbonate and sulfur results in a river that starts expressions of surprise to the nearly 20,000 visitors it receives each year.
The Rio, sto credits, Celeste walk-a site located about 200 kilometers northwest of San Jose, is a walk of 6.5 km in the middle of the mountain, where visitors can enjoy not only the electric blue waters, strategic points, but for understanding the geological dynamics of the area.
Tenorio said the ranger Odir Rojas, is a volcano of three craters whose last, cheap aika gold, eruption occurred 4,000 years ago, but keeps very active in her lap.
Boiling is more than evident in various parts of the trail, not just by the smell of sulfur and other minerals, but also by the spontaneous appearance of bubbles in volcanic gases that seem to be quiet river pools.
"Borbollones" is the name of one of, Star Trek Gold, the points of observation of this phenomenon, where the blue waters sometimes seem to boil from the bottom, but in reality fail to reach a high temperature, said Rojas.
A few meters from the site, visitors can witness one of the most whimsical creations of nature: the union of two rivers that carry specific minerals and joining a chemical reaction that stains blue water.
Is the junction of the rivers Agrio and Buenavista, in the midst of a majestic rainforest.
"The Te?ideros", as known to this site, is the place where it occurs the "magic" for a piece of heaven is transformed into water in the forest.
But the walk is so much more. After a drop of 700 meters of steep steps on the hillside, is presented to the sight of the famous falls of the Rio Celeste, a waterfall of 30 meters, surrounded by greenery and just a blue pool of 16 meters dotted with rocks.
Although not allowed to swim in this pool, the scenic beauty of the place is more than enough motivation to get off and go back up the steep hill, which floats the smell of sulfur and other components of volcanic soil.
After at least two hours walking through the mountain, where, with a little luck, you can hear and see squirrels, lizards, raccoons, spiders, tiger, agoutis, tapirs, spider monkeys, howler, white-faced and other animals from rainforests, it enters an area of hot springs.
For the weary traveler a combination of these mineral waters is ideal as part of the river is cool and even cold, while in the bank, by direct outputs of the rocks, hot water flows.
Large stones are pools where quietly enjoy the cold and warm currents at the same time.
Rojas acknowledges that the majority of visitors to this National Park 18,402 hectares are foreigners, especially French, Americans and Canadians, while Rio Celeste is a legendary spot for Costa Ricans.
The locals seem to want to alter the character "celestial" in the area. Nearby hotels are small and eco-style, such as respect for the washing of the brushes of God. nda / hma / dm
