See the Amazonian Meeting of the Waters

Witness one of South America’s most captivating natural phenomena as the dark waters of the Rio Negro collide with the paler Solimões.

Like vinegar in oil, the inky Rio Negro refuses to mix with the ochre waters of the Solimões when the two Amazon tributaries meet just a short distance from central Manaus. It’s well worth visiting their confluence to see the two colossal rivers flow side by side, forming a dramatic dividing line before finally merging after 6km of stubborn separation.
