Amazonas or Solimões River?
The Amazon River originates from the source of the Apurímac River (high in the western part of the Andes) in southern Peru. Throughout its route it receives, still in Peru, the names of Carhuasanta, Lloqueta, Apurímac, river Ene, river Tambo, Ucayali and Amazon. It enters the Brazilian territory with the name of river Solimões and finally, in Manaus, after the junction with the Negro river, as soon as its waters are mixed it receives the name of Amazonas and as such it follows until its mouth in the Atlantic ocean. As we realized the cruise in the previous part the confluence with the Negro river we call the route of river Solimões.
