We went on a weekday and the place was mostly empty so great experience walking around and seeing all the exotic animals. I was very happy with the flamingo exhibit. Walked for about 4 hours though, so it was exhausting!

Visited the Bronx Zoo and this zoo also had excellent exhibits. Three miles of walking around the zoo on a hot day was exhausting but definitely worth it.

We were really looking forward to visiting Zoo Miami. After all, Miami has a great climate and is a large city, so you would expect it to be a good zoo with some exotic animals. We were sadly disappointed across the board. To get into the park we had to wait 30 minutes on line to buy our tickets, even... More

I live here, and this is one of our favorite places to go, especially on winter (Miami is quite warm in summer). The Zoo is huge, so be prepared to walk, and don't forget to bring your kids swimsuites, there is a very cool water park inside. If you are here the first Sarurday of the month, go and check... More

We hardly saw any animals even though we walked all over. In addition the zoo also had a sad and dated appearance. Unless you live to the south of Miami the drive takes forever. I have been to zoos all over the world but this was the worst experience and Zoo Miami does not deserve the name. If you want... More

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
