  • It is a quite normal Park, with spaces, green areas, monuments, etc. What is special is from 17:00 to 19:00 aprox. When a without number of parrots they arrive to their trees to rest and sing in unison which can be heard at least a few blocks around.

  • It is beautiful place to see birds arrive; I do not recommend climbing to the Bell Tower of the Church, it is dangerous and there is no security, paid $3,000 and touches go approximately 85 steps up stairs some snail and other straight metal, in some parts, there is almost no space to move and already on this terrace are congre gas approximately 15 people. The descent is dangerous I would not recommend it for older people.

  • Go there 17h30 and wait. The birds you show how beautiful nature is
  • 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.
  • Cool park, amazing place to see the birds around 6pm.
  • The biggest park in Leticia. At sunset it's full of birds flying to the trees.
  • Clean and felt safe
