Parque de las Palomas
Near the Paseo de la Princesa , families can take their kids to a fun place where they can interact with the local pigeons. Young children especially love this opportunity. The pigeons congregate here, always hungry, and for one dollar you can buy a bag of dried corn to feed them right from your hands. It's a great way to squeeze in a little rest without the kids knowing!
I went to the park when I was younger and thought seeing the palomas was great. I loved being able to feed them and there were hundreds. There's always a couple of dead ones lying around, so it's best to watch for those before your kids find them first.
Every time we cruise and stop in San Juan we make this stop. Histoplasmosis...who cares!!! We walk through Old San Juan stopping at little bars along the way to have a drink or 2 at each and stop to visit the pidgeons before heading back to the ship!
It was great because its a one of a kind experience and its very economical. A wonderful experience for the kids too. Just try to watch out for the pigeon poop, there's tons of birds and sometimes you don't even see it coming! But it is very fun for people of all ages.
This august i took my grandaughter who is 3 years old, she loved it, i explained to her how my grandparents took my parents to that park, then how she and my father took me there as i took her mother and now is her turn. It was a very special day since my mother was with us also..
It's a quaint, romantic little park with little paths and many benches to sit, relax and feed the pigeons(palomas). As you enter the park, there's kiosk where this friendly Puerto Rican couple sell a variety of things and among them they sell small bags of cracked corn to feed these pigeons - They're the healthiest and biggest ones I've ever seen and it's no wonder! They're fed all day long by tourists!! I had a lovely time. I would recommend it to everyone!
I hate pidgeons...I find them gross. But my husband LOVED this park. He found it hilarious! There were vendors to buy the food from, and you dont even need to throw it. The pidgeons will land on you and even eat out of your hand!
It does have a beautiful view of the harbor though, and its a landmark. Worth the trip!
