Huge spaces for the animals, well presented.

Love the design layout for animals into different continents. It's quite large and a good way to spend the day taking pictures and just enjoying the animals.

We find that zoos are one thing our teenage daughters will still tolerate and let their 9 year old brother enjoy! We were concerned that it would be miserable walking round the zoo in the heat - especially as we're not used to it. When we discovered they have bikes with shade and that all 5 of us could ride...

15 years since I had returned to Miami Metro zoo. Not much has changed to tell you the truth but they do still have a nice variety of animals. We did not try any of the food

We had a great time at the zoo, but MAN was it hot! We got there early enough to see all the animals before they baled and went inside to hide from the heat. By that point, we did the same and headed back to our hotel. The animals looked healthy and well cared for. There were ample signs around... More

We liked everything, especially the open air pedal cycles you can rent. This Zoo is huge and its exhausting to try to walk all around it without using the pedal cycles. The animals look like they are very well kept and happy. There is a kiddie play area that we think is very important for families, and the cost of... More

I went with my husband kids (4 and 5 year old) to this beautiful zoo and I would definitely return. The parking is free. We paid 26$ for 4 because we had the return tickets for 7$ per person. The zoo is clean, all animals look very healthy, all waters are very clean. The zoo has places to have lunch... More

Display of Animals was extensive. Clean and great food courts. Ample parking and reasonably priced. Elephant display one of the best I have seen. Riding a camel and feeding the giraffe was cool.

I am a big animal/zoo person and have been to many. I have been to some ghetto ones, decent ones, and some pretty excellent, acclaimed ones. Zoo Miami was definitely the biggest one that I have ever been to and may also be the best. First of all, it is HUGE. Just to walk around and see all the animals... More

Due to my job our family has traveled the US extensively in the last 6 years. During that time we have had the opportunity to visit dozens of zoo's, some good some not so good. I can honestly say that the Miami zoo is hands down the worst zoo we have ever visited. The zoo itself was covered with trash,... More
