Rio Negro and observing at left bank the city of Manaus,
some wooden houses - a typical building, the floating gas

to the meeting of the waters where the muddy waters of
the Solimões River run side by side
with the dark ones of the Rio Negro without mixing.

(Sotalia Fluviatalis) and Boto rosa (Inia Geoffrensis),
dolphin frolicking above the water.

Park which afford you a wonderful opportunity to canoe
amidst creeks and flooded forests with their exotic fauna
and flora, including the famous Victoria Regia water
