I stumbled across this path and was amazed by the number of pigeons. There is a brick wall with holes for them to roost. They are on the ground, in the trees, on the rooftops -- just everywhere. There was a man selling corn and the birds would land on you and eat out of your hands. I texted my... More

The view is nice here, but there were too many pigeons for me. However, it is called Pigeon Park and there certainly are a lot!

We walked up to here when on a walkabout in old San Juan. It is worth a visit just to see all the pigeons being fed.ideal if you have kids.

Great for kids, backdrop is of a nice chapel. Birds won't bother you too much, and there are vendors around to assist.

Me and my family took a Royal Caribbean cruise to Puerto Rico and heard about this place on the royal Caribbean blog podcast. It sounded like fun and it did not disappoint. So much fun for all us. Such a different experience and my 4 year old had a blast. Would definitely go back again and it's free. 1 dollar... More

We happened upon this little park while exploring OSJ. It was a fun little place to bird (and mostly people) watch. There was a girl sitting at the entrance selling bags of seed to feed the birds.. Just look out for poop!

I can't imagine going to Old San Juan and not stopping at Parque las Palomas (pigeon park) don't be afraid, the birds are use to having people around, you can buy food and feed them. Very cultural thing locals still enjoy doing.
