Rainbow River

The beautiful Caño Cristales in Meta, Colombia.

Have you ever dreamed of floating on a rainbow? Well, the next time you are in Meta, Colombia you can! The Liquid Rainbow is what the locals of Serrania de la Macarena, a province of Meta, call it. This amazing natural phenomenon can only be seen between the months of July through November.

The water is so crisp and clear in this river that in most parts you can see all the way to the bottom. For a majority of the year, it looks like any other river, despite its lack of fish, but during the summer the algae producers a plethora of vibrant colors.

If you plan on visiting the Caño Cristales river you should pack some hiking shoes along with your swimsuit, because it is a pretty good walk from the cities. Once you arrive you will immediately understand what they mean when they say good things come to those who wait, and you will probably never want to leave.
