Enchanting river indeed due to its clear water and different species of fish, you can even ride a boat and rent a vest if you want to swim, during the time of our visit the place is crowded

Before I came to this place, I was a bit skeptical about this river, the photo's must have a heavy filter because it can never be that blue! Well guess again, it takes your breath away as soon as you approach this mighty blue river...More
