The blue water magic sauce
Have you ever heard of Copper Sulfate? This mineral gives the river its magical hue and is found in high concentrations in some spots, such as the “Blue Lagoon” under the waterfall, which is why swimming is prohibited in some areas. But don’t be concerned. It is used as an algaecide in swimming pools at low doses.
