The Cano Cristales is also called the “River of five colors” or the most beautiful river in the world that ran away to paradise. The Cano Cristales is a river of Columbia about 100 km long and width of 20 meters that is located located near the town of La Macarena in Columbia, South America.
Normally, the Cano Cristales is indistinguishable from another river. However, for a short period each year, during the wet and dry seasons when the water level is just right, the many varieties of algae and moss located at the bottom of the river bloom in a brilliant display of colors. thanks to its red, yellow, green and blue algae, the river “flourishes” in a rainbow of
colors. It can be said that the river is the biological heritage of humanity.
The Rainbow River is formed by a first magnitude spring (Rainbow Spring) that is ranked fourth in the state for volume of discharge. In addition to the springs located at the headwaters, there are many smaller springs that discharge from numerous caves, rock crevices, and sand boils the entire length of the river.
