This Columbian river located inside the National Park Serrania de la Macarena in Meta is popularly called “the river of five colours”.  A unique species of plant that lines this river floor called Macarenia Clavigera, turns “electric red” in colour during the short span between the wet and dry season.  This is offset by blotches of yellow and green sand, blue water and a million shades in between.  The psychedelic rainbow-effect can be witnessed for a few weeks from September through November.
