Nature / Park
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.

  • I havent seen something like that! Go up on the church tower at 17:15 and see the million birds coming. Amazing!  more »
  • You can go to the top of the nearby church to watch the parakeets come in to roost while the sunsets. Absolutely beautiful. Traveled in July 2015.  more »
  • A small, central park that is a pleasant place to hang out and people-watch. There are also a few vendors, nice trees, and literally more birds at once than I have ever seen, right around 5PM  more »
