Bijagua and Río Celeste - Land of Volcanoes, Rain Forest, and Memorable Experiences.



Bijagua offers a great variety of activities that interact with nature. Bijagua is tropical and cloudy forest, coexistence with animals that have inhabited this land for centuries; trails in the primary forest, plenty of birds and hybrid resources, beautiful waterfalls, and wonderful baths in any of the natural pools created by these bluelight rivers. The 45,474 acres of Tenorio volcano and the 10,453 acres of the Miravalles Volcano embrace each morning with sunrises and sunsets worthy to be contemplated from each part of Bijagua. Nature is the place where our souls go free.


Immersed in a town with only 5000 residents, sustainability responds to the order of natural life, where this rural community gives support to each other and makes community unions not only related to the economy but also to nature. Conscious of the effort that requires sticking with sustainability practices between us, we are a tourism chamber with a vision to generate and commit to hosting a conscious, social and responsible tourism.


Bijagua is a community where humble and serene people live, who have that authenticity and kindness from the countryside. Their people and their traditions make this place an opportunity to create businesses related to tourism. Strengthening and supporting all together, we are building a local, and sustainable economy.
