Tour to Rio Celeste Waterfall When we woke up it was still pouring rain. We had heard the beautiful blue waters of rio celeste turn a murky brown so we marched down to Gringo Pete's at 7am to ask to change tours. He assured us he had called the park admit was sunny and blue.....we were doubtful but agreed we'd go. Carlos was again our guide.
