Summit Gardens

harpy exhibit in summit gardens, panama

Located just 30 minutes outside of Panama City, Summit Gardens conserves 700 hectares, most dedicated to recreation, with a smaller section for plants, orchids, and animal viewing. Visitors have an opportunity to observe a small sample of the many animal species found in Panama, including several different species of monkey, tapir, scarlet macaw, and puma. Signs point to areas of interest connected by well-maintained trails.

Unique Offerings

The Harpy Eagle Museum, while relatively small, has plenty of interesting facts, illustrations, and photos of these magnificent birds of prey, which happen to be Panama's national bird. Behind the museum, a large outdoor exhibit retains a pair of captive eagles, observable throughout the day.

The other exhibition, better known as "Jaguar World," is a small enclosure where visitors can view these powerful cats up close. At the moment, the exhibit has just one jaguar.
