Geocache Name:

The Meeting of Waters (GC3XGGT)

Difficulty/Terrain Rating:

2/2

Why this is the Geocache of the Week:

With much of the world in the grips of World Cup fever (Go USA!), we thought it would be a great time to show off some of the cool geocaches in Brazil. This week, we’re near the city of Manaus, where the soccer/football matches between England  &  Italy, Cameroon  &  Croatia, United States  &  Portugal, and Honduras  &  Switzerland will take place. For the fans visiting this area, finding this Earthcache is a must. At this location, the Amazon River and Rio Negro come together, creating an incredibly unique view of dark and light waters mixing together. If you’re lucky, you’ll even catch a glimpse of one of the pink dolphins that frequent the area.

What geocachers are saying:

“What a fun day! Took a tour with David Andrade’s Amazon Jungle Tours, filled small bottles with water from both rivers, swam with the pink dolphins, and more!” – molokaihuakai

“Very cool at this location! To me the darker water was colder today! Thanks for this earthcache!”  – bubbag04

“Cast away on an Amazonas Beach!!! Next Year we will come back… FIFA Wold CUP 2014!!! Thanks for the cache” – Günni Ka-Li

    I am rooting for USA USA USA!! My favorite geocache is in my hometown, Memphis, TN. It is called Old Iron Side (GC4GEA1) and consists of a dilapidated train car run off the tracks. The cache is also in a very unique location. :) It is very interesting and if anyone is in this area I definitely recommend that you go see it! Love your blog by the way!

    “(Go USA!)”
