Blue magic in northern Costa Rica

December 4, 2017

In Spanish, the saying goes: “Al que quiere celeste, que le cueste” – a prettier version of “no pain, no gain” (literally, “he or she who wants sky blue will have to work for it”).

The one exception might be northern Costa Rica’s Río Celeste, where minerals in the water create a dazzling opaque blue shade and gorgeous views available to any visitor. Read more below about one of the country’s loveliest attractions.

Would you like to submit a photo to our #TTPicOfTheDay series – the view from your home or favorite Costa Rican spot, or any other image you care to share? Please send horizontal photos at least 1100 pixels wide to kstanley@ticotimes.net. We’d love to see the sights with you.
