We regularly visit a zoo during our vacations, and we ranked Zoo Miami higher than most. It is much larger than we had expected, with large animal paddocks. Unfortunately, this means you have long walks through filler animals to get to the lions, tigers and bears. Zoo Miami has done an amazing job creating space for playgrounds and concessions. Staff...

Huge zoo with many exceptional exhibits. Especially like the Amazon River exhibit. Everything is very well done, and even though I do not have children I could not help but notice the many attractions and facilities they have for families. A memorable experience. Don't miss! Do watch out for the Miami heat and many rain showers.

It is a great place to learn and see another types of animals you don´t see of course often! You can feed the giraffes and ride a dromedary which is pretty cool the feeling! The place is really big so I recommend you to visit from an early morning so you can see everything with plenty of time. The animals... More

This is the best zoo I have ever been to! We have a family membership at the Toledo zoo but it has nothing on the Miami Zoo. This zoo is massive! So big that we rented a surrey bike for our family of four to get around on. Who needs Disney when they have a place like this. The zoo... More

My family had a nice visit to the zoo, despite the hot weather the visit was wonderful. There were many animals and it was a wonderful experience for my two children. We took the tram service right when we reached which gave us a tour of the zoo and afterwards we were able to visit the areas of more interest,... More

We were meeting up with friends that had two young children. Loved this zoo. The grounds were beautiful and clean, lots of wildlife to see even not behind fences (free ranging iguanas). It is reasonably priced to get in and spend the day. There are splash areas for young children. The only caveat being it is LARGE and a lot... More

The zoo has added many more things to do, such as feeding the birds and the great water plash area. Great to take the kids to get wet and enjoy the sites. If you go late and are caught far away close to closing time the monorail is free after 4:30 pm. We've used it a few times. There is... More
