Visit Santander Park, a public park known for its daily parrot gatherings. The park offers a respite and place for a walk during the day or a picnic in the thick shade of the trees. Rest on a bench and admire the lush green trees, wooden walkways, and ponds dotted with water lilies. A favorite place for the locals to meet, the park boasts a soccer court, a small cafe, and vendors selling drinks and snacks. Locals know to arrive before sunset to watch thousands of colorful parakeets descend from the sky, making a cacophony of noise, to nest in the trees.

  • As written by dozens of others the park is filled with returning birds at dusk making a great amount of bird sounds as they fly around the surrounding area.  more »
  • Masterpiece is sunset, countless birds return to nest. It is recommended that because there is a small church near the view from the top.
