You'll need to spend lots of time at the Zoo to really enjoy all that's available. The staff is very knowledgeable and can any questions you may have. Enjoy!!!

took a family trip with the children, and decided to rent the bicycles, didn't realize how big the zoo was!!! Love the concept of having the animals free, despite of the fact that can't see them very close! Visitors can chose to walk around, take the bicycles, or the monorail that travels across the entire zoo. Great family experience.

I have a membership and visit frequently. My 4 year old granddaughter and I go almost every month. There is even a small water park! You will want to wear comfy shoes but when you are tired of walking there is a monorail that goes around the park. They even have their own microbrew for the thirsty parents I love... More

The Miami Metro Zoo, is a wonderful experience for both children and adults, especially the giraffe feeding platform! Here's a tip: go early in the morning. It is almost always hot in Miami and, not only can the zoo become very warm, but the lions sleep in the heat. So, if you want to see them romp, try to get... More

Miami Zoo is a great place to go with the family. There is plenty of animals to see and the new addition of birds from different countries is beautiful. You can rent bicycles. It can be a bit costly but its worth it.

I use to take my daughter ones a month. Have the yearly pass (great savings). Big place, your better renting a bike and taking turns w/another adult to ride it, otherwise you'll be tired! Lots of outdoor activities.

We recently visited the Zoo after several years from our last visit. We found it very organized, good activities and the exhibits very interesting and fun. The animals seemed happy and well taken care of. We rented a bike that sits several adults and children and it was a great way to get around. It also had a cover that... More
