This is really something to marvel at! Water from the Rios Negro and Solimões is very different-current speed, pH, mineral content, oxygen, ... and appearance. Our cruise boat traveled through the area twice on a 7 day cruise. Worth the effort to get out on...More

This is an overrated phenomenon. Nice to watch when you are around anyway, but not worth for a special trip

Crazy how the two rivers stay apart for six miles before they finally mix. Must see location in Manaus.

There is a distinct separation of colors between the Amazon ( murky coffee color) and the Rio Negro ( Black). there is no mixing and a very distinct demarcation between the two rivers.

What can I say? Due to temperature and velocity differences, the junction of two rivers stays separate for quite a distance after joining. It's interesting to see.

Hard to believe it could be like that - brown and warm and then black and cooler. A great experience being out on the water in a little motorised boat.

Manaus is a built city and it was build because of the meeting of the waters. The two rivers come together to start the Amazon River. The different temperatures and speed of the rivers give them their two distinct colors. If you do go, its...More

Easiest way is to take a ( cheap) taxi. Agree a price beforehand, make sure the driver knows the destination first. Arm your self with a map!
