One of the most impressive nature destinations is waiting for you. Due to the special climate and the mixture of certain minerals the algae grow some months of the year in different colors. Due to that, the river is also called “River of the seven colors” or “Rainbow River” and was declared as one of the most beautiful rivers of the world. Spend 4 days within the Macarena National Park and explore pristine waterfalls surrounded by stunning tropical nature. This is a community-organized tour that guarantees that the local communities benefit from tourism creating decent work and life conditions.
