Co-existence is possible! If you don’t believe it, visit the Meeting of the Waters. Don’t mistake this as an estuary, as the rivers do certainly meet, but they run side by side for almost 6 kilometers. The Amazon, known for its muddy posterior and the Rio Negro, it’s quicker and darker contemporary. A sight you don’t want to miss out on, it won’t take you long to notice the difference in the flowing waters; dip your feet in the Amazon and the Rio Negro and you’ll immediately feel the difference in the temperature. The Amazon is warm whilst the Rio Negro is a lot cooler.
It’s these differences in the temperature, velocity and salinity that make this wonderful act of nature possible and enjoyable to experience. It’s only possible to see the Meeting of the Water through a guided tour, so book your place as soon as you can.
