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.

  • Between 5:00 pm and 6:00 pm it is the precise time to see birds, is a very nice show and the decibels reach to be very high, I recommend it, you can also see the Lotus Flower there is a small lake where flowers and within this there is also a black caiman .
