Meet your guide at the activity provider's office, near the villages of Colorado, and Curubande. Then, get into a 4WD and head to the entrance of the trail. Get out of the vehicle, and start your hike to the waterfall on this scenic trail. Follow your guide for 1.3 miles (2 km) to the waterfall. Then, keep going uphill on a steep climb, and cross some caves along the way. Afterward, swim for 82 ft (25 meters) through a beautiful river canyon. Next, arrive at the waterfall, which is near the Rincon de la Vieja volcano. Admire the cascading blue waters which rush down between 2 canyons. Appreciate the uniquely colored water, which is blue and turquoise due to the sulfur. Splash around in the water for a while. Finally, head back to the starting point along the trail to finish up your activity. Make your own way back to your accommodation at the end of the tour.
