After God finished painting the sky, he washed the paintbrush in this river

This legend is from Rio Celeste, Costa Rica.  I would like to share some pictures of nature just being totally incredible. After a walk through the rain forest, you reach this flight of stairs of about >100 steps. Curiosity jumps in as to where this leads to.

Blue Waterfall, Río Azul, Costa Rica

BOOM...out of nowhere, we are greeted with this magnificent view. A waterfall of a blue colored river.

A little more upstream we reach the Blue Lagoon. It's about 700m upstream from the waterfall.

Another shot of the Lagoon. It's actually the color of the sky, a light blue. Truly breathtaking.

No Swimming

The Rangers insisted that no one bath in the river, to conserve it better and avoid it turning into the local swimming pool.

Further upstream, this is where all the magic happens, where ¨God¨ dipped his paintbrush. This is where two very different rivers meet. The one from the left is a natural spring water river, while the one from the top is an acidic volcanic river, both clear water. But when they join together, Rio Azul is born.
