Have you ever looked at a river and thought: “This river is great and all, but a pop of color would really turn it up a notch!” If you have, fear not, you can just visit the River of Five Colors, in Rio Cano Castales, Colombia.

For a short span between the wet and dry seasons, a unique kind of plant called Macarenia Clavigera (say that one time fast) turns bright red. The plant is offset by hues of yellow and green sand and the natural blue of the water. Put it all together, and you basically have a rainbow colored river. Don’t tell the gays though- they love a good place to drink cocktails and float around half-naked.
