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.

  • Good place to hang out and absorb the local life yet the park could use an upgrade the benches are falling apart. If you are there at sundown you are in for a cacophony of noise as the parrots go back...  more »

  • Best natural attraction in Leticia. Be there around 17:20-17:30. Parque Santander is one block from Hotel Amazon Bed and Breakfast. Visit the bell tower. Go to the church pay 3000 cop to go up. The view from the bell tower is marvelous!
  • Probably the best attraction in Leticia is not really the best, as it looks dirty and lacking maintenance. The only thing attractive about this place and a must activity is the arrival of thousands of parrots at around 5:15 pm. when they start settling down for the night. This is a truly unique event and I can't even describe the noise produced. A remarkable spectacle.
  • Went between 5am and 6am. Heard thousands of birds and saw a lot circling around etc but I think the real show might be in the evening! Beautiful park.
  • A great place to go for a quick walk. Beautiful trees, tons of birds in the evenings, a restaurant and a play structure for children.
  • come on sunset. you will love the sounds
