The source of the Rio Negro is in Colombia, it travels through northern Amazonas, passing through the municipalities of São Gabriel da Cachoeira, Santa Isabel do Rio Negro, Barcelos and Novo Airão, until it reaches the city of Manaus.

The Solimões River rises in Peru, crossing the border with Brazil, between the municipalities of Tabatinga and Benjamim Constant, going to Manaus. When they meet, their waters (black and muddy) do not mix due to differences in density and speed .

While the mouth of Negro is in Manaus, Solimões continues its journey until reaching the Atlantic Ocean. The two rivers run side by side without mixing for an extension of more than 6 km – a huge route for those who want to experience a speedboat ride through this place.

RIO NEGRO

The Rio Negro is a river of very dark waters, its color is due to the large amount of organic acids resulting from the decomposition of vegetation. It has a high degree of acidity, with pH 3.8 to 4.9, has an average temperature of 28º C and flows slowly at about 2 km per hour.

The adoption of the practice of fishing and release is important for the species to remain in these rivers, providing much more experiences for tourists in the region and contributing to the local economy of the riverside cities of Rio Negro. Today, you can purchase these sport fishing packages very easily at RBarcos.

RIO SOLIMÕES

The Rio Solimões, on the other hand, has a muddy color very similar to coffee with milk, this is due to the large number of sediments that the water carries as it flows under the Andes. It is colder than the Rio Negro, having 22º C. In addition, it flows much faster, running about 6 km per hour.

AMAZON RIVER

After they meet, they begin to receive the name of Amazon River, one of the main economic and transport means for the inhabitants of the city of Manaus. The difference in composition, acidity rate, flow temperature and density is what prevents the mixing of the two rivers when they meet. The color contrast is very striking, and this phenomenon can be seen even from space. Sometimes the water encounters obstacles that form strong swirls that agitate the two rivers and make very beautiful shapes.

Despite being a beautiful natural phenomenon, the meeting of two rivers that do not mix has also become one of the most beautiful tourist attractions in Amazonas, in addition to being recognized and officially registered by the National Historical and Artistic Institute (IPHAN) as a Intangible Cultural Heritage.

The meeting of the waters is important for the life of the riverside communities and for the inhabitants of the city of Manaus as it is the element of identity of the local culture and needs to be preserved for its ethnographic and cultural value. Visits to this place can be enjoyed at on board a vessel.
