FABIO'S REVIEW

Green-Visiting

A lovely swamp (that’s a new oxymoron!) near Manaus: to reach it, you can negotiate a fee with any boat from the Manaus harbor, or join a half-day organized tour from any tourist agency. The tour usually includes the “Encontro de agua” (where the two rivers meet, and the two different colors merge), the giant water lilies, the iconic kapok tree, and a lunch in a floating restaurant.

5. ENCONTRO DE AGUA

The black Rio Negro river, which flows through the city, meets the sandy colored Amazon River, but the water doesn’t mix immediately. Instead, they flow side by side for 6 km, an occurrence known as ‘the Meeting of the Waters’ (Encontro das Águas).
