Thanks to CNN's travel writer, Lucy Sheriff I now know about an unusual river, the so-called River of Five Colors. She writes,

Visit CaƱo Cristales during the wet or dry seasons in Columbia, and you'd be forgiven for wondering what all the fuss is about.
However, travel there from June to November, the moderate months between the extremes of the wet and dry seasons, and you'll witness one of Mother Nature's crowning glories.
What occurs there from June to November is unique, the only place on the planet that this is observed. See Sheriff's short report here which includes pictures of this rainbow river. And here is a link to the responsible plant, Macarenia clavigera.
