Visit the Caño Cristales River in Colombia

The world is full of amazing rivers and lakes. But one in particular really stands out. Caño Cristales, commonly referred to as ‘the river that ran away to paradise’ is a famous body of water in Colombia. Residing underwater is a range of rocks covered in green moss. But for a period of time from September to November, the water level dips allowing the sun’s natural heat to warm that moss covering the rocks. As a result, blooms grow beneath the water, ranging in all shades of colors.
