This is a fun thing to do. Its very special to see the two different types of water meet each other. Must see when you are nearby!

A must when in Manaus! Solimoes and Rio Negro flow together to form the Amazon river. Due to different density, speed and temperature they merge only after quite some kilometers and show a distinct difference in coloring, drawing a line in the water! Best to...More

Very curious to see where and why the rivers do not blend, it´s very unique and quite weird to know they still take 25 KMs to actually blend, worth the visit!!

I'll start by saying that I live in British Columbia; not far from where the (muddy) Fraser river meets the (pristine) Thompson River. From the banks above, there is a very distinct brown/blue division that, because of the speed of the rivers, carries on for...More

Touch the water from both rivers to realize difference in temperature. The whole trip takes less than 45 minutes from Manaus

You need a guide to fully understand why this happens. We saw it from the Iberostar Grand Amazon cruise ship which is its self a great Experience. I highly recommend it.

The meeting of waters is a very interesting thing to see. Make sure you see it in a day trip in which you visit the floating villages, swim with daulphins and visit the Tuyuka Indian Tribe. This day trip is amazing and its cost is...More

Definitely very hot and very humid. However we saw hardly any mosquitos. We did have the yellow fever shots as our travel Dr recommended it even though we are in our 70s and 80s. We had no ill effects. We also took Malaria... More
