I don't know why I haven't reviewed MY zoo! I go often, mainly for exercise. But I love great apes and they have the top three! I tend to avoid going during the Summer and on weekends. I love the openness of this zoo. The enclosures are large and for the most part not too close to each other. Which... More

Came here after buying a Groupon deal that included admission, monorail tram ride all day, souvenir cup with fountain drink, and 2 feedings (giraffe and/or birds). The zoo is large enough to see over the course of 2 days esp. If the heat is at its peak and you have young kids with you. There are lots of animals to... More

This one of the best zoos in Miami. The zoo is very large so you might schedule to spend the day there taking breaks in between. They have a water park which kids can go and cool off. If you feel like you did not see the whole zoo and want to come back you can keep your ticket and... More

The day at Miami Zoo was a complete let down. Paid for the tickets online due to travelling from the UK as advised on the Zoo website. Should have left it to experience and bought when we got there. Travelled 200 miles from Orlando to visit last week, and when we got there they were deciding if the rain would... More

This zoo is huge..!!! Bring comfortable shoes, plenty of sunblock, water bottles and bathing suit for the kiddies.. As a Miami resident, I'm used to the heat and humidity, but when I say it's hot, I mean it's HOT.. The only reason I'm not rating it 5 is because it's a bit overpriced to begin with and they charge more... More

i will only recommend it in the winter not the summer since there is no much shade. If you can, get the bike and do the tour at your own pace.

It is a great zoo but too big to do it all in a day (like I did). It is expensive but the atmosphere is fantastic.

I purchased a Groupon for my family to visit Zoo Miami. For only $51.00, we got admission into the zoo, a free drink in a souvenir cup for each family member, unlimited monorail rides and the opportunity to feed the giraffes and birds. It was quite a deal in addition to free parking, which the zoo always offers! My family... More
