If you visit Manaus don't miss it!!! It's very impressive!!! It's more than 5 kilometers the black and brown water flow together, but they don't mix!!! Amazing!!!

It is amazing to see the convergence of the two rivers that form the Amazon. they are so different. You might think it is just water, but it much more. The life in the two rivers is very different. The Rio Negro has no pihranna so it is MUCH better for swimming.......The temperature is different, it is amazing........

This is an amazing view that you will probably not meet in many places on Earth. The 2 rivers meet but they are so distinct as oil and water, not mixing . You can see and feel the difference in colour and temperature ...

This is my absolutely best experience like coming to another World. Imagine the two different oceans meeting each other and the keeping a line apart from each other like meeting and then confronting each other with respecht.

In this place the Rio Negro and the Amazonas meet, but their waters of different colors don't mix, because they have different current speeds, temperatures, pHs and densities! Pretty amazing!

Maybe not a destination unto itself but this will probably be included in most of the tours offered that also feature Indian Village, swimming with Dolphins, etc. The meeting is the waters is really quite interesting how they do not mix and have substantial temperature differences in additional to their colors.

I had booked a tour through "GET YOUR GUIDE." It was "Jack of Amazon Travel Inc." They never arrived to pick us up at the Hotel but later said the driver was waiting outside for us! He must have been invisible. AVOID THEM AT ALL COSTS. I WOULD NEVER TRUST "GET YOUR GUIDE" again. Luckily another tour offered to take... More

This is the natural postcard of Manaus. If you are lucky, you can see the attraction of the air plane, but I recommend you spend some of your time and money to see up close this wonder of nature. The meeting of the waters of the Solimões River and the Black River provides not only a beautiful landscape but also... More
