Parque de las Palomas, San Juan

4.2
#5 of 13 in Parks in San Juan
Bird lovers appreciate Parque de las Palomas, a picturesque park where a variety of pigeons are known to gather. The park attracts pigeons of all colors, shapes, and sizes, often in large groups. Unlike with some other parks, here you’re encouraged to feed the birds. You can buy some feed from one of the local vendors in the vicinity. While there, pay attention to the park’s trees--many are worth examining because of their twisted trunks and unusual shape.

  • One of the corners more romantic and beautiful in the old San Juan also has a beautiful panoramic view of the city.

  • This is a pigeon park, they sell food so you can feed the pigeons. The kids will have a blast. Bring the camera!  more »
  • Located next to the chapel of the Christ, this park is, as the name suggests, full of pigeons, so it is not indicated if you have displaying Hitchcock "Birds". Once crossed the cloud of doves, you can enjoy a good view.

  • We had a great time feeding the birds here! We brought our own cereal, but there are vendors with resealable baggies of seeds (for the birds) and cold waters (for you!). Be careful with young ones - the birds may frighten them when baggies are opened prematurely and spills inevitably occur. They will land on you if you let them, but the vendors nearby were helping the young ones navigate by kicking their feet forward as they walk - an excellent strategy to avoid stepping on the birds who will come VERY close to you!
  • Lots of pigeons! Perfect place for kids to feed hundreds of pigeons. You can buy corn at the entrance of the park to feed the pigeons. Great views of San Juan Bay.
  • A great place for relaxing or watching wildlife on two and,or four legs. It was drizzly when I was there but that soon ended and the sun took over. It never seems to rain for too long here.
  • Love coming here to feed the birds. We usually bring our own feed.
  • I loved the experience. We bought a bag of dried corn and fed the pigeons. I took great pictures of my mom feeding them. Great memories we will have forever.

Where to stay in San Juan

If you're looking for colonial-era lodgings, explore the streets of the old town area, where many grand buildings house guesthouses and hotels. The neighborhoods of Condado, Ocean Park, and Isla Verde contain the majority of beach resorts, with some glamorous and upscale options sitting alongside more laid-back and family-friendly ones. Rental bungalows just back from the beach, as well as side-street hostels, provide the city's budget-friendly places to stay.
