Water Encounters Santarem is the merging of two giants with an intriguing image and one of the most beautiful and surprising event of the nature between the Amazon River and Tapajos Rivers known as “Encounter of the waters in Santarem”
An awesome event that you can see daily, including from the shores of Santarém. However, for a better contemplation it is best to observe closely, the scenery is breathtaking, so much that some of our clients come to jump into the water to feel on the skin, the difference of the two rivers.
