Charming City Where Waters Meet
Two awe-inspiring rivers, one city deep in the heart of Brazil. Santarém is a riverside city, nestled in the Amazon rainforest, full of natural wonder and surprise. Witness the Meeting of Waters, where two giants collide. The sandy brown water of the Amazon River meets, but doesn’t mix, with the emerald blue water of the Tapajós River.
Take a stroll through one of the oldest cities in the Brazilian Amazon, where Portuguese-inspired architecture and vibrant colors combine. Step into museums to discover art, history, and glimpses into the past of this historic city, founded in 1661 named after the city in Portugal with the same name.
Discover the biodiversity that thrives in this region of the world, where you’re never far from watching dolphins play, sloths lounging, and colorful birds in trees, keeping a watchful eye on all that passes by. Experience the Amazon Rainforest, serene islands, and waterfalls that make Santarém a paradise for nature lovers. Or take in the beauty of the river from land, with a walk along the lively waterfront where nature and culture thrive side by side.
This port in the Pará province is a bustling trading center, with a thriving local economy driven by rubber cultivated from trees, Brazil nuts, and wood. The hustle and bustle is balanced by white-sand beaches where it’s simple to relax and recharge along the fresh water of an area dubbed the Amazonian Caribbean.
Whether you like to relax or play, let the rivers of Santarém guide your way at a memorable port.
