As you ride out to the site of the meeting of the waters, you don't notice the water until you are right on it. Wow, it's like dark coffee and cream tea meeting and not mixing. If you put your hand in the water you can feel the temperature difference between the two rivers...it's quite significant. I do love the... More

Seeing the meeting of the waters at sunrise was an amazing experience. The meeting of the waters looked like black coffee with cream being added. The colors of the water meeting created some amazing shapes.

It is unbelievable: water from Rio Negro and Rio Solimões does not mix! You can see sharp border between "white" and black water and you can feel difference in temperature. The best of Manaus! Otherwise has Manaus not much to offer for a tourist. Opera house not spectacular at all outside if you have seen one in Europe. Better inside... More

The two mighty rivers the Rio Negro and the Amazon meet at Manaus, the Negro is black as its name denotes and the Amazon is muddy milky brown. Where they meet is a site to behold as the two waters do not immediately mix but run together down the river in conjoined streams for several kilometres, an amazing site. A... More

I took a tour of the city and the meeting of the waters with my wife and a friend. This is a must see and do while in Manaus. We used a tour company called Amazon Destinations, a half-day tour, and a wonderful guide named Rodolpho. We were on a boat that had a roof, powered by a 150HP Yamaha... More

Well worth seeing the distinct change in the colour of the two rivers as they come together to form the mighty Amazon. There is a clear cut distinctive line between the two.

The pictures you see of the Meeting of the Waters don't quite do it justice. It is an amazing site. Even more interesting is to put your hand in the water and feel the difference in temperature between the two.

I went there many times but this last one I was working. I had to show foreign people a little about Manaus and their views and opinions made me look at this place in a different way. We have a great amount of water in Brazil! Places like that must be cared and visited. It is amazing! Two rivers meeting... More
