... has aluminum silicate particles in it. (see photos) Their density is sufficient that the entire river looks blue, especialy when the sun shines. The water is very acidic and sometimes smelled like sulphur - not pleasant. The acidity cleaned the rocks comprising the waterfall (catarata). We saw gases bubbling up at places in the river from nearby volcanos. Bubble all you want! Did you know that Costa Rica's landmass is only 3.5 million years old? ...
... hotel part had all the staterooms and also had some hot springs. It also had pool with a bar (a drink bar not a metal bar) where I could buy smoothies. Club Rio was more devoted to activities.

It has been a democratic country for quite some time, with no revolutions. 2) 27% of the country are protected parks 3) The economy is led by tourism, then agriculture, then the production of microchips. 4) biggest crops are pineapple, bananas and coffee. Anyways, have to go. We are off to make and eat ...
