Pic of the Day: Swimming under a turquoise waterfall
You’re never far from a waterfall when you’re in Costa Rica.
And while this one — located near Bajos del Toro, Alajuela — doesn’t have the grandeur of the 90-meter tall Rio Celeste Waterfall in Tenorio Volcano National Park, it does share some of its iconic turquoise hue.
Even better: If you can bear the cold water, you can go swimming in the pond under this small waterfall. Now that’s Pura Vida.
