OK, so don't expect the San Diego zoo, this zoo has taken some hits over the years - the biggest one being hurricanes - Andrew in '92 that absolutely destroyed it, and smaller storms every few years since then have slowed down it's progress, but we took our family this past weekend for the first time in over 10 years...

I had visited the Zoo a few times but I had never really paid attention to all the details. I went once to the aviary and I spent a couple of hours just in that part of the Zoo. This is a really big zoo, you need to with a lot of patience and check out all of the different... More

We went to visit the zoo for the second time since 2000, and i didnt expect to see that kind of change. There were mostly birds, as for the other animals there were only one or two of each species. Would have loved to see more variety of animals

We visited Zoo Miami about 4 years ago, when it was still called the Miami Metro Zoo, our kids were a bit too young then but still had a great time, so we decided to pay a second visit now. Few things have changed since then but it looks like we had a better time on our first visit... Not... More

Zoo Miami is one of my favorite Zoo's I've ever been to! It's very large and has great animals. Since Miami is so hot, sometimes the animals don't move too much, so I love going in Dec-Feb most. Don't forget your sunscreen!

Monorail is a miss advertised feature at the zoo. You really can't see the zoo and it's animal when on the monorail. Out of the thousands species you might see a handful if you are lucky. It is merely a mode of transportation and serves no purpose to visitors. However the zoo is amazing. One of the best zoo in... More

Ventured to the Zoo Miami today. Perfect sunny day. Not many other visitors. Zoo was "people" quiet while wildlife was abundant. My favorite moments were watching the lioness mother with all her cubs bouncing all around her having a grand ole' time. If you plan on walking this zoo, make sure you have comfy shoes...it is 4 miles for the... More

Spooky nights was fun. The haunted house just the right amount of fright! Well organized trolly ride and not to crowded.
