The most famous feature of this river is its striking bright blue color, a phenomenon that you simply must see to believe.

Along the way, our knowledgeable guides will point out the diverse wildlife, including wild birds, frogs, and mammals, that call this park home. The trail will take you through lush forests, across two hammock bridges, and past bubbling gas outlets before arriving at five outstanding locations.
