    Park wide, comfortable, its Director is a professional and staff is experienced, the animals are in excellent condition, infrastructure should be improved, with much potential. You can enter disabled people and wheelchairs, limited parking, ideal area for children to play, lots of flora and fauna, home of the great Harpy Eagle, symbol of the Panamanian nation, is impressive to know it!, a great achievement of the Museum and viewing area to appreciate this stunning bird. In general I recommend it and a very important institution, worthy of support.
