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.

    Impressive birds that reach thousands of jungle each evening to spend the night in the Park. Thousands and thousands of parrots and swallows. They sleep in the Park to avoid predators at night in the jungle. In the morning to 5: 30 make the reverse route, of forest park. The Park as such... "poposeado" by so much bird.

    Fun place every evening for sure. Met some nice locals here and ate some delicious ice cream. Worth a couple trips while you are here. The birds are an amazing experience.
