Translated from Spanish, the name of the river means “Crystal Stream” or “Crystal River”. Locals affectionately call it the “Five-Colored River”, “Melted Rainbow”, “River that Escaped from Paradise” and simply the most beautiful river in the world! The fact is that the Caño Cristales River is really multi-colored, it is famous for the fact that it changes its color several times during the year.
The colorful palette of Caño Cristales is dominated by shades of 5 colors: red, yellow, green, blue and black. All of them are the result of the vital activity of river algae, which, depending on the season, light and water temperature, change their color, and depending on the time of year, the saturation of colors varies, then weakening, then intensifying.
