Santander Park, Leticia

(4.3/5 based on 280+ 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.
