This is probably Colombians best kept secret with regard to its natural beautiful locations. Despite of being located pretty much at the core of Colombia’s geographical centre; few know of its existence! and as you can see in the pictures, its diverse gamma of rainbow coloring underneath makes it nothing less than a wonder.
It’s not just me saying this. Here is its brief description that you will find in wikipedia:
Caño Cristales is a Colombian river located in the Serrania de la Macarena, province of Meta. The river is commonly called “The River of Five Colors,” “The Liquid Rainbow” or even “The Most Beautiful River in the World” due to the algae produced colors like red, yellow, green and blue at the bottom of the river giving it a unique appearance.
Because it is located in one of the areas of conflict for several years, it has been declared a National Reserve and the tourism is almost none, so to visit, you will have to go to one of the nearby towns in a quest that only few dare to experience. Hopefully as the situation in Colombia improves and the guerrillas are being eradicated, this could be one of the main touristic attractions in the near future and we pray its natural state will be kept as a National Reserve as it has been up to now…
I choose this following video as it not only shows you beautiful pictures of the amazing wilderness but also includes a typical folkloric song of the area.
