"Meeting of the Waters" Santarém Things to Do Tip by mircaskirca

Santarém Things to Do: 6 reviews and 14 photos


The meeting of the green-blue Tapajos river with the ochre-coloured waters of the Amazon, which flow alongside each other for many kilometres without mixing, is worth a boat excursion. It is even more spectacular than at Manaus.

In Santarem it is best viewed from Praca Mirante do Tapajos, on the hill in the centre of the city and just a few blocks from the waterfront.
