Considered one of the 7 tourist wonders of our country, it is a unique experience that no national or foreign tourist should let pass.
A great work of art of the Creator who receives thousands of people every year, in a walk of approximately 3.5 kilometers, which are marveling at such beautiful landscape. Being the color of the turquoise river, it gives the sensation to its visitors to be in the sky. Among its main attractions are its spectacular waterfalls, where taking photos will leave an unforgettable memory. In addition to a great phenomenon that has its place in “The Teñideros”, this is where the river gets its name, turquoise color is the product of a perception of the human eye, due to the dispersion of sunlight. A group of scientists at the National University discovered that a type of mineral compound (a white substance that covers the rocks at the bottom of the river) of aluminum, silicon and oxygen is responsible for reflecting the light blue tones of light reaching the river.
