The Amazon Sights

Meeting of the Waters

  • Plaza/Square/Piazza

Fodor's Review

In Santarém, for about 5½ miles, the beautiful, aquamarine Rio Tapajós floats next to the murkier waters of the Amazon, until the larger river finally absorbs it. Seeing the Meeting of the Waters here is breathtaking. It's best viewed from the Praça Mirante do Tapajós, on the hill in the center of town and just a few blocks from the waterfront.
