2. Caño Cristales River, Colombia

This Colombian river is known as 'The River of Five Colors', because of the range of striking colors it turns from the end of July through to November. The bed of the river becomes blue, yellow, green and black, but especially red, due to a flourishing red plant species called Macarenia clavígera, which is found at the bottom of the river.
