They Call This The Most Beautiful River In The World. When You See It, You’ll Probably Agree.


The river shown in the photographs below is Caño Cristales, an amazingly colorful river in Colombia. The river takes on many different colors, including yellow, green, blue, black, but especially red, caused by the weeds at the bottom of the river (Macarenia clavigera).

The river is commonly called “The River of Five Colors”, “The Liquid Rainbow” “The River That Ran Away to Paradise”, and “The Most Beautiful River in the World” due to its striking colors.


This is what I imagine a river downstream from a Skittles factory looks like. Taste the rainbow!
