Have you heard about Caño Cristales the five colored river in Colombia before? This river has so many nicknames such as Crystal River, The Liquid Rainbow, The River of Paradise or even the Most Beautiful River in the World. This river was extremely beautiful, It has a unique biological wonder due to the algae that produced a color like red, yellow, green and blue at the bottom of the river.
The Cano Cristales located in the Sierra de la Macarena, Colombia, It is located in a remote, isolated area which is not easily accessible by road. The site was closed to tourists for several years because of terrorist activity in the region along with concerns about the environmental impact of tourism. It was reopened to visitors in 2009, and today there are several Colombian Tourist Agencies that will fly travelers to La Macarena. From there it is a short trip into "Serrania de la Macarena," the national park in which Cano Cristales is located. For most of the year, Cano Cristales is indistinguishable from any other river: a bed of rocks covered in dull green mosses are visible below a cool, clear current. However, for a brief period of time every year the most amazing transformation occurs - the river blossoms in a vibrant explosion of colors.
There is a kind of shallowness in the dry season and a kind of swampy in the rainy season which do not give out that illuminating rainbow effect all over. The point lies in between the two, and perhaps, this is where the water level is appropriate for the display of all the spectacular combinations of red, green, yellow, and blue algae.
