Parque de las Palomas, San Juan
(4.1/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Parque de las Palomas at the forefront of your travel plans using our San Juan trip builder.

  • schoolkids were in the park laughing at the pigeons as they sat on their backpacks and arms and eating out of their hands too. We laughed as they yelled and ran from them.. But you could tell they wer...  more »
  • If your nearby stop and enjoy this little park at the end of Calle Tetuan, full of spectacular old trees and lots of "palomas". Nice quiet spot and good view of the waterfront below. 
  • Warning: The birds can see food from a mile away. If you chose to buy a bag of corn kernels from one of the vendors standing outside the park, know that that birds will surround and maybe land on you....  more »

  • A must to visit place in the Old San Juan yes near LA Capilla de Cristo and LA Fortaleza, the governor house. Excellent views of the Bay.
  • One of the best spots to view the port of San Juan, including the Coast Guard base. You can be fully involved with the prodigious pigeon population, or skirt the crazy poopers and just enjoy the view. I love the little chapel right next to it, it is one of my favorite corners in OSJ. Que linda!
  • Very cool area of San Juan. Lots of stores to shop. Very busy and parking is difficult for larger vehicles. You may be able to see a guy with an iguana that he will let you take pictures with. You can buy bird food to feed the pigeons in the park that has signs that says don't feed the birds :D
  • Everytime I visit Puerto Rico I always stop by here. You can feed the pigeons and it's a great photo op. They do not sell any food to feed the pigeons anymore so bring your own.
  • Beautiful view and an opportunity to feed pigeons and take some great photos! Make sure to cover up your arms or you will get a few scratches from the pigeons.
