Best time to visit Rio Celeste, Tenorio Volcano National Park
The best time to visit Tenorio Volcano National Park is in the dry season from December to April and as early in the morning as possible. It doesn’t mean you can’t visit in the rainy season, however you have to take into account that the normally so distinctive blue color of the river will change into brown mud water coming from the jungle. This can lead to a disappointing visit, especially when you expected to see the amazingly blue river.
During the rainy season from May to November the showers mostly appear in the afternoon. But with Tenorio being located in Costa Rican’s hills and rainforest, it can rain any day of the week, no matter the season. We had for example some little rain during our visit in March. So if you want to be well prepared, then bring a poncho or rain jacket!
