"Colombian Paradise"

If you are adventurous, it is highly recommended to visit Caño Cristales. You will find plenty of swimming holes here. But don't go there if you are not in good physical condition. Rock formations are extravagant and there are flowers of different types and colors. The best thing here is the river crowded with flowers.

Caño Cristales

Caño Cristales is a Colombian river located in the Serrania de la Macarena province of Meta. It's a tributary of the Guayabero River. The river is commonly called the "River of Five Colors" or the "Liquid Rainbow," and is even referred to as the most beautiful river in the world due to its striking colors. The bed of river in the end of July through November is variously colored yellow, green, blue, black, and especially red, the last caused by the Macarenia clavigera on the bottom of the river.
