  • The distance from the center of El Valle de Anton to the El Nispero Zoo is traversed in 5 minutes, the road is in good condition and arriving there is a parking lot opposite the entrance to beach. Input prices are $5 for foreigners and 3 for Panamanians, retirees pay half price. At the entrance there are bathrooms for men and women that I recommend using because the journey can take up to an hour. The trails are marked and the first thing you see are the cages with Australian parakeets, macaws, papagallos, pheasants, peacocks, toucans and many birds. We can also observe two tapirs which are in danger of extinction. These animal Panamanians we call them "Macho de Monte". We can also see monkeys, lizards, turtles, alligators, chickens, guineas and roosters and hens of different species. There is a small pond with Japanese fish called Koi. In addition there are ostriches, goats and the famous golden frog that only exists in this area. There is also a lot of exotic flowers.
