A boat trip to "Encontro das Aguas" where the Rio Negro meets the Amazon river is nice. Manaus is not really big on "sights". On the cruise ship they will probably offer certain tours.

Thanks, they have a few tours, but we like to go on our own..Is it easy to book the tour to see the rivers meeting on your own???

Yup! There are a bunch of tour operators with boats to the Meeting of Waters, which is a must see!

I recommend Amazon Explorers.
