In the middle of Costa Rica's jungle, in the Tenorio Volcano National Park, there is a river called Rio Celeste. Celeste in Spanish as well as in Itaian means "Sky Blue".
The awe inspiring river is turned literally blue due to the emanation of sulfur from the volcano and precipitation of calcium carbonate. Thermal springs and small geysers dot the area as do rivers, waterfalls, lagoons and panoramic views. The upper area of the park is dominated by primary cloud forest, while the lower regions are carpeted with rain forest. The Tapir and the rarely seen Puma reside in the area. If this incredible blue lagoon it's too far from you at least enjoy it in these pictures by the REUTERS photographer Juan Carlos Ulate.
