Santander Park, Leticia
(4.3/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Santander Park on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Leticia holiday planner.

  • Impressive amount of parrots that live in the Park and very punctual sunset come to sleep. The sound of her singing together is unique and deafening. A demonstration of the beautiful nature

  • It's very nice, runs few minutes throughout the Park. There is a tree arranged in the corner of the Park. Art. There are several figures throughout the Park to take a couple of photos. The highlight of this park is what happens from 5 until 6 o'clock; reach thousands of birds sing to locals and visitors. As says another traveller here "is a concert of natural" beautiful. A very recommended option is to climb to the highest part of the Church opposite the Park, charge 3 thousand Colombian pesos (nearly one dollar) and is a very good viewpoint. Tip: do it before 5 in the afternoon to reach see the birds since they arrived.
