Caño Cristales is a real river in Colombia that is constantly changing colors. It’s so incredible that people have dubbed it the Rainbow River. This is definitely something to add to the bucket list!
The river changes colors so frequently because of a plant called macarenia clavigera. The color of the plant are based on the light and water conditions of the river.
This stunning display of mother nature is a hot spot for tourists all over the world who are visiting Colombia. The colors range from green, orange, red, yellow, and blue.
