The most common inquiry our team gets about the Boiling River generally follows this pattern:
“Wow! The Boiling River is really impressive! But I’ve seen large hot springs/a thermal river elsewhere in the world—what makes the Boiling River so special?”
Firstly, we always appreciate curiosity and with this section we hope to address this frequently-asked question. Secondly, if you have seen a large thermal river, Andrés Ruzo would love to know about it! He is currently building a global database of large geothermal features (thermal springs, rivers, pools, etc.) so your experiences and observations could be very valuable! Please see Citizen Science and be a part of the science!
