The first impression you have is that you want to mix the waters. The confluence of both rivers is amazing, they stay separate during several kilometres due to differences in density, temperature and speed. If you put your hand in the water you can feel the difference in temperature. It just takes a couple of minutes to see and at... More

Very interesting area where 2 rivers will flow side by side at different speed rate, different acidity and temperatures

The meeting of the waters between the Amazon /Solimoes /Rio Negro Rivers in front of Manaus, capital of the Amazonas State in Brazil, is the most known natural atraction in the area, because of its proximity to the city and easy way to get there , from 30 minutes to one hour, depending on the kind of boat used. The... More

Seeing the confluence of the two rivers is fun, but takes about ten minutes. We did this at the end of a long tour doing other activities. Take pictures, get your feet wet, imbibe factoids about the two different rivers ( the Rio Solimoes has a higher speed, lower temperature, and more basic ph than the rio negro), and you... More

It sound so simple: meeting of waters; however it's without a doubt a great experience! You will see 2 rivers - Negro and Solimões - one light brown and the other one black touching each other. Ask your guide to drive the boat slow from one river to the other, put your hands in the water, and you will feel... More

I saw this while taking a river boat tour. We got to hang out in this area for about 30 minutes as we learned about the rivers and how they meet. Very cool experience and fun to photograph!

You will only need about 15 minutes here to learn from your guide about the waters, why they look that way, snap some photos and feel the temperature difference, but it is well worth it. We passed it on our way into the Amazon and stopped on our small boat to wonder at nature. Very cool spot and you've got... More

Very interesting to understand how this happens. Hopefully this 2 rivers are preserved for many more years to come. Manaus should clean the port more, but this part is mostly clean and the division of these rivers is very impressive.
