I just received the following email confirming that, contrary to rumors, Paradise Gardens is very much open. This is an attraction that you should not miss if you are visiting Chiriquí.
Hello! I was hoping you could help us out at Paradise Gardens. I am a volunteer that has been working here for the past 6 weeks. During this time, I have heard rumor after rumor that we are closing and/or closed. We are very much open and need visitors to help us support the animals that come and go. We have proud new Tamarin Monkey parents and would like the suggestions from the public in naming the twins. We are holding a Name the Babies Contest. Entries cost $1.00 and must be in by March 9th at 12 pm. Name suggestions will be posted at PG and voted on. March 13th the winner will be chosen and receive a dinner for two at Las Ruinas. If you are able to post this and pass it on to other contacts that you have it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
