Why And When

The colours of Caño Cristales come from the rocks, plants and other natural watery items in the riverbed (for instance, the red comes from a red plant – Macarenia clavigera).This mesmerising site takes beauty from nature and blesses it with so much more.  Well, this magnificent beauty is not present throughout the year therefore if you want to witness Caño Cristales, July to November is the time you shoot your shot!\
