Caño Cristales – the river that ran away from paradise!

This unique Colombian rainbow river is distinguishable from any other river on the planet because at certain seasons of the year it becomes tinted into different vibrant colors and looks absolutely unreal!

The head of the “River of five colors”, as locals call it, is situated in the Serrania de la Macarena province of Meta. The river flows to the East till it runs into the Guayabero River. The five most typical colors of the Caño Cristales are red, green, yellow, blue and brown. These colors appear thanks to a life activity of kelp species called Macarenia Clavigera. Depending on the season the colors and their shades become more or less intense.
