Called the "liquid rainbow" river, Cano Cristales draws people from all around with its clear waters and vibrant colors. Various minerals on the bottom of the river cause it to turn green, yellow, brown, black, and especially red. Most travelers embark on a four-day walking tour along the river, which passes multiple waterfalls. You can also go for a single-day tour from Macarena. Test the waters and don your aqua shoes before jumping in, as the river varies a lot in depth and the bottom is rocky.

You should come prepared for walks and tours that are somewhat heavy, but worth every second.

There are also flights from Cali and Bogota. In the municipality there are different associations (guides, boatmen, transporters) that work with travel agencies; they are very organized and strive to serve tourists very well and implement good practices for the conservation of the place. The guides who accompanied us were very attentive to the group (maximum 7 people per guide). The pipe crystals is spectacular, so it is called the most beautiful river in the world, there are specific places to take a refreshing bath without affecting the plants that give the colors to the river... There are also tours of the Guayabero River, where you can observe a lot of fauna (birds, turtles, monkeys etc. On a tour we get to see pink dolphins at the junction of the Losada and Guayabero rivers
A rainbow fell to earth and landed on this river. It is beyond spectacular. The colors are just amazing. The pure clear water is amazing. We were allowed to swim on a small pool that forms and is not harmful to the plants. Tour guides are very professional and are truly trying to protect this wonder and they are doing a good job. They are also very friendly. We were taken to a night show where local music and dance was the main attraction. It also included food which was pretty good. The hotel was very clean, excellent local food and good prices. All in all, this was a truly wonderful trip. I hope to go back very soon.
one of the most beautiful river in the world in my opinion, also called the river of five colours. Inside the crystal clear water, aquatic plants make the river look red and green. The sun brings more effects and some parts of the water can be red, yellow, green and blue. Amazing!
