Twenty minutes from downtown Panama, the Summit Botanical Gardens and Zoo - established as an experimental farm in 1923 and where teak was introduced to the continent - is known for its palm tree collection and Harpy Eagle habitat. The Harpy Eagle, one of the world's largest birds of prey, is Panama's national bird.  Indigenous to Panama, it is an endangered species. The small zoo is more a wildlife rescue center and includes tapirs, monkeys, tropical birds and the occasional jaguar. Children will also enjoy the small playground. It is open from 9 am to 5 pm with a $1 admission fee.
